Biography

Cross of St George
Edward Overend was born in England.

Edward was the son of Seth Overend and Ann Elizabeth Wormwell born 7 May 1905.[1][2][3]

He married Ivy Frankland in the second quarter of 1930.[4][5]

Edward died in the third quarter of 1943.[6]

Research Notes

The 1939 census gives a birth date of '5 May 1907'[3] and that year for his birth is supported by the estimate in the death registry.[6] However, there is no record of an Edward Overend born in 1907 although there is one for 1905.[1] The 1911 census shows his age as five[2] but it is important to realize that effectively means 'born between 3 Apr 1905 and 2 Apr 1906' and NOT born in 1906 (1911 minus 5). Without further evidence one is left with giving a birth record, even if just an index, the greatest weight. For the remaining documents, greater confidence should be giving to the 1911 census (less than 6 years after birth) rather the others with a distance of over three decades. That 1911 census, describes him as a five year old school boy. This argues strongly that a 1907 birth date cannot be correct as four is too young for school. Further, it is within the range stated above for a boy born on '5 May 1905' and there is little room for doubt that he was born on that date.
