We feel it is important however to tell their full story


Annie was born in Dublin about 1870. According to the census records, she may have been born anytime between 1869 and 1875, she was never sure of her age. We do not know who her parents were. She first appears in records in 1891 when she is listed as a servant in Hove. By 1893, Annie was back in Ireland where she married Francis (Frank) Joseph Weatherall, a former soldier in the 9th Lancers in Armagh. He had been discharged in July and the couple married between October and December. By 1901, the couple were living in Worthing in Gratwicke Road. Apart from the 1901 census, their daughter Rosey receives no other mention. The 1911 census states “no children born”. However when Frank joined the Royal Sussex Regiment in 1916, his records mention an adopted daughter Kathleen Ellen McCann (see 1911 census). Was she also Rosey? Annie died on 19th September 1913 at 10 Browning Road. She had been suffering from gingivitis which turned into septicaemia. No probate.

Frank also suffered from dental problems. According to his army records, he had no teeth in his upper jaw and only four decayed teeth in the lower. This caused severe indigestion as he could not chew his food properly. He was discharged as medically unfit as he refused treatment. He died in Crawley in 1922.

Miscellaneous Information

Note: Annie did not seem to know her real age or where in Ireland she was born. Both differed in each census return. Apart from the 1901 Census, there is no trace of a Rosey Weatherall. The 1911 Census states there were no children of the marriage. However Frank’s war records mention an adopted daughter Katherine Ellen. Was she also known as Rosey and was she born to Annie (1892 in Ireland) before she got married? Was that the reason Annie went back to Ireland?
