Biddlecombe Family Tree - who is out there
Hi, my name is Len Payne, I am looking for family links for the Biddlecombe family. My great grandfather was Charles Arthur Biddlecombe believed to be from Leicester (1869 - 1950), he had a son Reginald Arthur Charles Biddlecombe, who was lost on the Titanic (1876 - 1912), he was married to Emily Mintrum who bore him four children, Reginald Roland Victor (1900 - 1969), Christopher Percy, (1902 - 1970), and twins Charles Wilfred (1904 - 1948) and Eudora Winifred (1904 - 1973). They resided in the Shirley area of Southampton. In or about 1906 Reginald left his wife Emily and formed an alliance with my grandmother, Ethel Payne, whose husband Robert Payne had died. As a result of their commonlaw relationship, my father Leonard Payne, was born in 1908. They continued to live together until the Titanic disaster. My grandmother remarried Frederick Warn, and had another six children under that name. My father had an elder brother Harold Payne by my grandmothers first union. I have traced my immediate cousin Christopher Biddlecombe, born 1932, who was the son of Christopher Percy Biddlecombe. I would like to find out more about my great grandfather Charles Arthur Biddlecombe, as well as my
grandmothers first husband Robert Payne. I am told there are several decendents of the Biddlecombe family living in the Leicester and Southampton area.
