Biography

Cross of St George
John Punchard was born in England.

John Elgood William Punchard[1] was born in 1875 (probably between July and September) [2], in Bethnal Green[3]. or perhaps Victoria Park, Essex.[4]

In 1891, when he was 15[5], he was living in Stanstead Rd, in Lewisham, London. He was living with his widowed mother Margaret (Reeves) Punchard (Maggie)[6]), his 13 year old sister Kate Rose Punchard, at the house of his 50 year old uncle Gustave Herfield, also with his 39 year old aunt, Rose/Rosa (Punchard) Herfield, and his widowed[7] Grand Mother Catherine (Bowen) Punchard. He was working as a Merchant's Clerk, which he was still doing in 1901.[8].

The fact that he was a Merchant's clerk, and that his sister was born in Hong Kong, China[9][10]) , suggests that his father may have been involved in shipping and his parents were living or visiting Hong Kong when his sister was born around 1878. It is likely his father died prior to 1891, as there is no record of them together, and his mother changed her name surname to MAY. [11] John's grandfather, wife to his grandmother Catherine was also a Mariner. [12]

In 1909[13], 1910[14], and 1911[15], John was living in a single furnished room on the first floor of 45 Tremaine Rd, Anerley S.E., Dulwich. The landlady was his mother, now known as, Margaret Jane May of the same address. [16] It is likely that his mother had remarried to a person of the name MAY.

John finally married Winifred Beal in 1912[17]. John had known Winifred for at least 11 years, as he was visiting/boarding Winifred's family home on the night of 31 Mar 1901[18], and Winifred was visiting him at his home in Croydon on the evening of 2 April 1911.[19]

He died, aged 64, around Apr-Jun 1940, near Southend-on-sea, London.[20]
