Batman and Smith

Gun-toting John Bulmer SMITH is the son of today’s baptism anniversary person. A note in Filey Genealogy & Connections says he was with his maternal grandparents in Muston in 1871 and 1881. I couldn’t find his parents in the England and Wales censuses taken in those years and discovered the reason later. John Bulmer senior and his wife Hannah had gone to France. The 1901 census records the return to Yorkshire. John was in Scarborough, working as a coachman, married and living with his two French offspring, “Joseph Duelli Smith”, a butcher, and domestic servant Annie Elizabeth. John’s wife Hannah is not at home on census night. She may have been a patient at the Insane Asylum in York. I have not been able to determine their ultimate fates. Too many Smiths…
