Note on Husband: Henry Thomas BRIND
Henry Brind's full parentage is unknown. At the time of his birth, his mothers husband Thomas Brind who had been a Sergeant in the 14th Regiment of foot had been killled in Malta as the result of a charcoal fire in a small room. Thomas' daughter Catherine was christened not two weeks after his death in May 1854 and the family soo left Malta to return to the UK. Why the family chose the UK and not Ireland where Elizabeth his mother was born, is unclear, but the family found themselves in Uxbridge where the children and Elizabeth were in and out of hte workhouse until Henry got a job as a prison warder and later got married.
At the age of 12 Henry Thomas Brind was admitted ot the Uxbridge Worhouse as a "destitute child", he stayed for about 2 years before leaving again "at his own request". After this he went in and outa few times before he disappeared only to appear again when he married Eliza Mary Godliman and in 1890 as a prison warder at Wandsworth.
Henry died as a result of injuries sustained in an incident at Wandsworth Prison where he worked in 1908. As a direct result of this, his wife Eliza Mary Godliman placed her children in the Uxbridge Workhouse for a period until she took them back some months later.
Henry's children were placed in the Uxbridge workhouse for a period of three months until they were returned to their mother. Frederick Charles Brind was sent to live with his mothers sister, Emily Godliman and her partner William Heritage and police constable, and Harold Brind was sent to live with his Autn Kate Godliman and her husband.

Note on Child 1: Frederick Charles HERITAGE (2)
Frederick Charles marriage was married previous to his marriage to Louise Howard though no record of this has yet bene found.
A lovely little story of Frederick remains in that a neighbour of Bill BUllock was travelling home by train and struck up a convesation with a stranger on the train. As they passed through Iver station, the stranger said that he used to have a brother who lived in Iver. the neighbour said "I bet that his name is Harold Bullock", the stranger was of course Frederick Charles Brind who was amazed but sometime later when Frederick and Harold met up again they took him to the local working mens club for a drink and when Bill looked in through the door and spoke to him he realised that he was not his father and that it was Frederick - the resemblence between the two was uncanny!.
Later in life Fred visited Australia . He said that he worled for Dorman Long and they were the company that built the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Fred stayed in Sydney for two years and helped to build the bridge. Whilst in Australia he also visited his sister Alice who had emigrated to Western Australie in about 1920 and had married an Englishman. Alive and her husband owned a sheep station in the outback and to get to Perth, Fred had to travel a few hundred miles by train where Alice was waiting for him. They then travelled by horse and cart for about ten hours to get to the sheep station.
Unfortunately the sheep station no longer exists and no record of his has yet been found.
