It is believed Albert Edward COURTNEY is the son of Edith Paice, known as Edith Courtney, who was unmarried at the time of his birth in 1886. The birth was registered in Meonstoke as Albert Edward PAICE, no father listed.
Albert Courtenay is listed as the grandson of Abigail Courtney (nee Paice) in both the 1891,1901 census records at 1 Madiera Vale, Bournemouth. However, in the 1911 census whilst still living at the same residence Albert is now listed as Abigail's nephew.
His occupation in 1901 is illegible in the census records - Ticket ???.  By 1911 he is working as a milk carrier, occupation listed as retail dairyman.
Albert died on 12 Oct 1918 in Syria. He had enlisted as a driver in Royal Horse Artillery 20th Hants Bde, during World War 1. Aged 32. The Damascus War cemetery records indicates he was the son of Mr. and Mrs. A. G. Courtney. Born at Meonstoke, Hants.
