  • Notes 
    • John Farrell, born 1845, marries Mary Ann Stradwick -1866 and had MY GRANDFATHER B.1874, the same year as John Farrell, now called Gilbert Hastings Macdermott, is touring the States and making a
      lot of money singing his famous song-

      "We don't want to fight but by Jingo if we do, we've got the men, got the guns and got the money too".

      Also sang "Champagne Charlie is my name"

      By 1881 he is no longer with my g.grandmother, and is in digs in Brixton. Sometime in the early
      1880's he sets up home with Annie Louise Milburn, and they have the following children-

      Edward John b.1884,
      James Patrick b.1887
      Annie Louise b. 1889

      at which time he had given up singing and acting and was a theatrical agent.

      In the meantime my grandfather, also named John, married Alice Cloake in 1896.

      Whilst he was fighting the Boer War Alice and the first of her children went
      to live with Mac and family at Brixton -1901 Census.

      My father Charles Farrell was the third child of John Junior and Alice, and dad married in 1933. Emily
      Rust and I came along in 1934. Mac dies in Clapham Road in 1901, just after the
      Census- the following day he had a big obituary in the Daily Telegraph.

      I hope that is clear now. Annie Louise MacDermott marries Sydney Leon Wood at Brixton
      in 1909, and Marie Lloyd was a witness.
