This is one of the profiles that I have been working on regarding a new line of Doust, Hopefully I will eventually make a connection with this branch and mine! and so the research continues.

Frank was born in 1870.[1] in Portsea, Portsmouth, Hampshire, England, United Kingdom. He Married Emma Eliza (Trevett) Doust in June 1890.[2] in Woolwich, London, England, United Kingdom.

In the 1901[3] Census, Frank is shown to be 32 Years old, resident at Ann Street, Plumstead East, Woolwich, London, Middlesex, England. He is employed as an Engine Oiler.

In the 1911[4] Census, Frank is shown to be a widower at age 41, employed as a Mate Mariner in the shipping industry.

Frank passed away in 1933.[5] in Isle of Wight, Hampshire, England, United Kingdom.

Really nice work, Shaun. I wish I could read the name of the Commissioner of Oaths. What a title! Great job, Shaun!

Thank you Pip, yeh I'm not sure either , but it looks like it could be J Lance James/Jaus? or J Lanas James/Jaus?

Not sure...I think we need a handwriting specialist here!
That looks close. Maybe Jones? Looks like the middle name has an “s” on the end, but can’t be sure. Well, at least Frank could write!
