|Gwendoline Baker was a 30 year old spinster living in Moortown, Curry Rivel, Somerset when on 2nd December 1930 she married the 57 year old widow, Tom Rue in St Andrews Church, Curry Rivel.|
Tom was a farm labourer from nearby Pitney who's previous wife had died in early 1929. They had had no children as far as I could see.
I have not spent long loooking into Gwendolines background, although I do know from her marriage certificate that her father had been Harry Baker, a railway linesman who was deceased by 1930.
One of the witnesses at Gwendolines marriage to Tom was Clifford Baker, who amy have been a brother?
Tom and Gwendoline had a son in 1934.
Gwendoline died in early 1937 aged just 35 in Taunton.
Tom died in early 1951 aged 77 in or around Yeovil.
I have had a lovely letter from their son, who is not represented on this website for confidentiality reasons, and he advises that when his mother died, he was placed in a childrens home. He knows little about either of his parents.
