Difficult to pin this chap down, nothing in the papers and a near miss with the census record from FamilySearch 1911 attached, but father is Richard in 1901.

Can we find any clues to Id him please?

Thanks

Dave

Looks like Richard had died by 1911 census as Ellen was a widow so trying to find out if he was referred to as Jack rather than Richard - middle name possibly

I think I've almost got the family now, Ada Kewley is nee Evans, she married James Herbert Kewley

Frederick is nephew

 

From FamilySearch

Hugh W. Evans had an elder brother John who married Margaret Eleanor Fisher in 1889, they were both in their 40's.

She must be Frederick's mother "Ellen".

I will probably have got this wrong but isn’t this Fred Evans parents Richard Evans and Ellen (nee) Heath?

I discounted the family with father Richard.

John is sometimes known as Jack.

Yes we have John in the family known as Jack but I saw that there was a Hugh and John who were on crew lists so just wondered if on the newspaper account Jack was a nickname -  long shot! And confusing lol
