BASSETT & BRYANT - a brother and a son killed in war within same 2 weeks
JOSEPHINE MARION BASSETT born about 1867 in Wellington New Zealand, she was the 6th daughter of Thomas BASSETT & Sarha Jessica HUDSON
- she had a brother Ivor who was killed in Belgium June 1st 1917 - 2 weeks later Josephine's son William Bryant was killed in France June 16th 1917.
I would like to know more about Josephine - what I have so far is: her father was Thomas BASSETT he was born on board the "DUKE OF ROXBURGH" while his parents were emigrating to New Zealand - he died in 1927 and is buried in Palmerston North
- Her mother's name was Sarah Jessica HUDSON (1856-1930) from Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. Jessica also died in Palmerston North and is buried in Terrace End
Her mother's headstone reads:
In loving memory of MY dear mother - as in only one child left in 1936.
Josephine married William James Bryant in 1894 - I have 3 children for them, was there more?
