Ernest “Walter” Cutridge
aka Ernest “Walter” Cuttridge?
aka: Walter Ernest Boughton Cutridge
b- Jan 25, 1893, Faversham, Bridge, Kent, England
baptized Feb 15, 1893, Bridge, Kent, England
d- Apr 9, 1917 fighting at Vimy Ridge
buried in Quatre Vents Military Cemetery, Cambligneul, France
enlisted in WWI, Private, 5th Batt.
Reg # 925029
Private, Army, Canadian Infantry, Saskatchewan Regiment

Father- John Cuttridge
b- bet Apr-June, 1845 Faversham, Bridge, Kent, England
or another source says- b- ca 1847, Hastingleigh, Kent, England
d- bef 1901
married Maria A. Duckett
b- ca 1857, Stone St, Kent, England
daughter of William and Martha Duckett

or was it Maria Borton?
a John Cutridge married Maria Borton, Apr- June 1875 in Bridge, Kent

or was it Maria Boughton, who is shown as his mother in his baptism record
and part of his name on his baptism record,
so now I am leaning to Maria Boughton.
but then I see Boughton is a sub district in faversham reg dist.
so maybe a transcription error here?

so not sure exactly which one is his mother
His mother Maria was a widow by 1901, age 49
found a Maria Cuttridge who died bet Jan- Mar 1914 in Faversham Reg Dist, age 63
so now we see 2 t's in the name.
so she was alive when he was sent to Canada

John and one of the Maria's had 7 children:

brother- James “William” J. Cuttridge
b- bet Oct-Dec, 1875, Harbledown, Bridge reg dist., Kent, England, not with family in 1901
d- no sign of him
brother- Thomas Cuttridge,
b: Abt 1878 in Littleholt, Kent, England
sister- Martha Cuttridge,
b: Abt 1880 in St. Lawrence, Kent, England
sister- Mary A. Cuttridge,
b: Abt 1882 in Minister, Sheerness, Kent, England
Older brother, Stephen Cuttridge,
b- 1883, (age 18 in 1901), Bridge, Kent, England
d- Nov 29, 1926 in Faversham Reg Dist., age 37
age doesn't match up with birth date though, so not sure about death date.
He is also shown as Stephen Cuttridge here, with 2 t's.
I am pretty sure he was married though to May Ann Castle,
as he had a son- Reginald George Cuttridge
who died Mar 29, 1967 , age 48
Reg married Joyce Eileen Fisher, age 18, Apr 7, 1945 in Throwley
Him and father Stephen, buried in Throwley Cemetery
Stephen had a son Ernest Cecil “Ernie” Cuttridge as well.
b- Nov 29, 1920 in Throwley, near Faversham, Kent, England
d- May 16, 1999, in Canterbury, Kent, England
Ernie had 2 children who should still be alive, and hopefully find this info.
Stephen also had Emma Cuttridge, Hilda Cuttridge, and Bill Cuttridge.

And younger brother, Frederick Cuttridge,
b- ca 1895, (age 6 in 1901), Bridge, Kent, England
d- Jan- Mar 1948 in Lambeth Reg. Dist., age 52
also shown as Frederick Cuttridge here with 2 t's.
he married Edith Emily Gurney, bet Apr- June 1926 in Lambeth, Reg Dist, England

Mother and 3 children living in Leaveland, Kent, England,
Maria was a servant for a Henry Williams.
All the family shown born in Bridge, Kent, England

Walter was sent to Portland Maine, with a ship full of other children, at the age of 10.
Left Liverpool England, Mar 24, 1904 to Portland, Maine, on the Ship SS Southwark
He was part of Dr. Barnardo's Home Children Group, heading to Toronto, Canada.
It has since become known, most of these children were abused and basically used as Farm slaves.
Going to War, was the only way out for Walter.
And then he ended up dying, fighting for his, and our freedom.
I can only hope he wasn't one of the worse case scenario's.

In 1911 he was in Rawdon Township, Ontario
Farm labourer for William J. Meiklejohn
1911 census says he immigrated in 1902

He was a farmer living at Hume SK.
when he enlisted, Dec 13, 1915 in Weyburn SK
his next of kin, A. J. Hay,
who was his Guardian, living at Belle Vue, ON
