|What were the mysterious "war operations" certified by A de W Raken MD on the death certificate of Mary Ann Brind, dated October 1940? She seems to have died at 25 Weltje Road, Hammersmith, but was this road bombed?|
|William Brind (18/3/1849-15/12/1912)
was described as an Oil hawker/ carman in the various censuses. This makes him sound like a market trader. But he was wealthy enough to bother to have a will and his widow's death certificate describes her former husband as a colourman. I am not exactly sure what a colourman was but I think it was someone who sourced high quality paints for fine artists. However, some in his family worked in the tile business (for example his son William who was a tile merchant) so I wonder if 'colourman' had anything to do with the building trade? The question is: what was a colourman?|
|William Brind's (18/3/1849-15/12/1912) death certificate says he died in the street and there was an inquest. Was this inquest (on 17th December 1912) reported in the local press, specially the West London Observer?|

|Who was C Brind? Was this
Constance Brind (born 1888)? She certainly had the right name for it.
The following was in the Times and Telegraph 10 Nov. 2020:
BRIND.-Harry, C.M.G, died peacefully at home on 3rd November.
Beloved husband of the late Barbara, father of Oliver and Clare
and grandfather of Ellen, Ben, Dominic and Oscar.
|In 2021 a Brind photograph album dating back to 1871 turned up. All the people actually named as Brinds could be identified, but one lady, a Mrs James Tichell or Tickell remains a mystery. Who was she? |
