Frank Donald PICKETT was born in 1887 in Hastings, Sussex, his birth being registered in the December quarter of that year. His parents were Eustace PICKETT and Emily Alexandra/Alexandra Emily VENN. The 1891 census has Frank living at 6 Bunkers Hill, West End, Brighton along with his parents, older brother Eustace and younger siblings Mabel and John. (Piece 813, folio 121, page 16) Emily died in 1893 and Eustace senior married Annie WEST in 1896. Move forward to the 1901 census (Piece 934, folio 33, page 16) and Eustace and Annie can be found in Brighton with Mabel, John and their children Alice, Inez and Reginald. Eustace junior is at the Gordon Boys Home, Chobham – a training school for boys in civil, naval, or military life, according to their preferences. He went on to be killed in action in 1914. However, I can find no trace of Frank. There is a marriage that took place in the June quarter of 1915 between an Annie E BROWNING and a Francis D PICKETT in Brighton. However, I am not convinced that this is him. His birth was registered as Frank, he is in the 1891 census as Frank – why Francis now? There is a Francis D PICKETT with wife Annie in Brighton in 1939 but his date of birth is 19th August 1884, so I really don’t think that this is the right chap. I am therefore looking for Frank in: 1901 1911 1939 register His death All help gratefully received.
