Part 855a – Smith Robertson Genealogy – 1890 Death – Great-Great-Granduncle Philip Abraham – London England

07 April 2013

Good Day,

The discoveries through my search and research continue as I focus on my Abraham Family Line. From The Times I just found the 23 December 1890 Death Announcement of great-great-granduncle Philip Abraham.

From The Times Digital Archive via the Godfrey Memorial Library here are the images.


My transcription –

THE TIMES
No. 33,202.
LONDON, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1890
PRICE 3d.

DEATHS.

On the 18th inst., PHILIP, eldest son of the late VICTOR
ABRAHAM, of Lisle-street, Leicester-square, aged 83.


And from my files I found the Death Index page for the quarter October, November, and December 1890. I found the image via the FreeBMD, Free Births, Marriages, and Deaths.



My transcription –

1 DEATHS registered in October, November, and December 1890 [AAN-ADA

A

ABRAHAM, Philip. 89………………Pancras 1 b. 94


Also on file I did find the General Register Office 1890 Death registration for gg-granduncle Philip Abraham.



My transcription –

CERTIFIED COPY OF AN ENTRY OF DEATH
GIVEN AT THE GENERAL REGISTER OFFICE

Application Number COL349496

REGISTRATION DISTRICT – Pancras

1890 DEATH in the Sub-district of Camden Two in the County of London

No. 459
1. When and where died – Seventeenth December 1890, 101 Bayham Street
2. Name and surname – Philip Abraham
3. Sex – Male
4. Age – 89 Years
5. Occupation – Teacher of Languages
6. Cause of death – Decay of nature. Epithelioma of the Tongue. Certified by . T. W. Coffeie F.R.C.S.
7. Signature, description and residence of informant - J. Duncan Young, Son-in-Law. Present at the Death. 74 Kings Road Pancras
8. When registered – Nineteenth December 1890
9. Signature of registrar - _____, District Registrar


There is a discrepancy as to the actual date of death, based on the entries on the Death Register and The Times Deaths announcement, the “Seventeenth December” and the “18th inst.”, respectively. All-things-being-equal I would lean toward the 17 December 1890 from the copy from the Death Register versus the reporting of the 18 December 1890 in The Times.

If you have any questions, thoughts, ideas, and comments, please feel free to contact me.

Enjoy,

Jim
