Text From Source: I am John Lewis Willicome, son of, Lewis Arthur Willicome, who was the son
of Lewis Floyd Willicome, who was born as Lewis Floyd Bawden to Sarah Bawden
who married John Willicome 21 November 1870 at Chepstow, Herefordshire,
England.

Lewis Floyd Bawden later TOOK the name of Lewis Willicome. This I know from
letters between him and the Canadian Gov't when he applied for pension.

Lewis Floyd (Bawden) Willicome has 5 other siblings that we record here from
personal knowledge. I have Lewis Floyds Bawden birth certificate. He was
born 6 February 1862 at Chepstow, Herefordshire, England.On the certificate
of birth no fathers name is listed.

His siblings are listed as follows:

Sarah A Bawden, born about 1865 at Chepstow.
Jane Bawden, born about 1869 at Chepstow
Bessy (Elizabeth) Willicome
Carrie (Caroline) Willicome
Thomas John Willicome

According to my information Jane married a Jackett.
Bessy married a Harper
Carrie married a Mills
My grandfather Lewis Floyd married Fanny Lyle who was born in Barnstaple,
Devon,
England.

I have pictures from an old family album brought to Canada when they (Lewis
and Fanny ) moved to Fort Steele, British Columbia, Canada in June of 1912.

Among my pictures is a couple of pictures which show a Mabel Jackett and and
also a Will Jackett.

It is our belief that John Willicome, who married Sarah Bawden was married
prior to his marriage to Sarah Bawden. This a very confusing family and
unfortunately none of my parents and grandparents or aunts and uncles are
now alive to question.
