Thank you again for the information.  The parish newsletter in March 1915 included a message from the Bishop of Winchester who just happened to be an ex-Bishop of Rochester from 1895-1905.  Thomas was headmaster of KSR from 1901-1910, so the two men must have known each other .  Indeed the Headmaster and Bishop Talbot would probably have worked together on both school and cathedral matters.

I should think the Fellow in the Dog Collar marching at the front is Thomas Frederick Hobson

The Town War Memorial is erected

The story of the Leatherhead War Memorial is outlined in some papers which belonged to the late Reverend Thomas Frederick Hobson, Vicar of St Mary & St Nicholas Leatherhead, who cared for his flock both at home and serving abroad during the 1914-18 War. The papers consist of correspondence and press extracts and were donated by a relative to the Leatherhead & District Local History Society in 1989.

Glad to be of Help.Here`s a bit more for Archibald 1908. Hilda was still alive as a widow in 1939 living at 20 Highlands Avenue , Leatherhead U.D., Surrey, on private means with a housekeeper and a lodger.


He became the Vicar of Leatherhead after leaving Kings School in 1910 until his death in 1925.

You will find these links of interest.

First: grandarog, thank you very much for that.  It fills in a lot of blanks.
Second: the son, Rev. Thomas Frederick Hobson was headmaster of King's School, Rochester from 1901-1910.  KSR was, and remains, part of the Cathedral foundation from 604 AD, so I think that makes the link very clear.  I'll need to check, but 20, Maidstone Rd must be part of KSR;.

Again, thanks.

 and Fanny  age 23  were living at
Burnage Cottage, Burnage Lane, Burnage, Chorlton, Lancashire,

Cant find Frederick or fanny. 1881 or 1891

1901 Frederick is Now a retired Bank manager living with Fanny Hobson  and Daughter Eliza Keyworth Hobson at Ashburnhan, Bournemouth, Christchurch, Hampshire,

The only connection to Rochester seems to be in 1901 Census when

Thomas F Hobson Age 40 Clergyman, Schoolmaster (Church Of England)
                                               is shown as
 Head Master of  the Grammar School 20, Maidstone Road, Rochester St Margaret Intra, Medway, Kent,
He was also the Headmaster of King's School, Rochester for 9 years from 1901–1910   

So one would presume he paid for and had the Bell dedicated in memory of his Father and Sister.

Good Luck ,Hope this helps.

Frederick Wade Hobson, Eliza Keywoth Hobson and Fanny Hobson
« Reply #1 on: August 30, 2017, 23:05:26 »
I'm researching some inscriptions found on the bells at Rochester Cathedral.  One of the bells is dedicated to Frederick Wade Hobson and his only daughter Eliza Keyworth Hobson.  I've found the grave in St. Margaret's Cemetery, Maidstone Road, Rochester which records Frederick was born 14 August 1824, died in Florence 25 May 1903, buried 4 June.  His daughter also lies there, born 3 November 1861, died 18 September 1914, and presumably unmarried for her name is recorded as Hobson.  Also in the Grave is Frederick's wife Fanny, 14 July 1837-12 March 1934.  The bell was cast in 1921, so Fanny was still alive then.  From the daughter's name I would guess that Fanny might have been Fanny Keyworth before her marriage.

Other than this I've not managed to find anything out.  The Hobsons must have been rich and/or influential to be recorded on a bell.  Can anyone assist with pointers please?

Thanks,
Martin
