    1. [PRISONS-UK] Thomas Edward Lunt Liverpool Walton on the Hill 1901 England Census
    2. Ken and Rita Inspire
    3. Hi, Subject is my G/D. As you see he appears on the England census in Gaol. I set my printer thinking it would give me some of the family. Came back to the printer after having Coffee, with my wife. “Lo and Behold”, it was all the guys in the jug with him. I was wondering if I can find out what his offence was. On the census he is described as a “News Vendor” and of “own account”. By 3rd March 1917 he was in a lifeboat with 17 other guys. He was 3rd Engineer on the S S Sagamore. On the 12th of March there was only 7 of them alive when the S S Deucalion spotted the lifeboat in the South Atlantic. Rescued them and headed for Cape Town. The all had feet or parts of legs and one guy had both legs amputated. due to Frostbite and Gangrene. I am hoping you maybe able to help to find out why he was a quest of His Majesty. He suffered badly from Post Traumatic Stress so you can imagine the whole family suffered till they all moved out, just prior to WW2 and his wife my mum’s, mum had died. hope you may be able to give me some help or point me in the right direction and that will just about complete his life story for my family genealogy. Very Best Regards Ken Berry

    3. Try the British Newspaper Archive: http://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk There's coverage in a number of papers about a 17-year-old Thomas Lunt getting 6 months for stabbing and wounding another newspaper boy, his rival for the affections of a young woman. He was tried and sentenced in May 1901, having been arrested (and imprisoned pending trial) in late March - the time of the census.
