Profile

Full name John Calvey
Born 23 June 1875 in Stockton-on-Tees, county Durham [registered in Stockton, Durham, June 1875]. This 1875-born Calvey seems to have died in 1945 in Cleveland, according to Death Registrations. The same source states that the 1937-died Calvey in Poplar was born in 1877.  Yet there is no other Calvey born in Teesside at that time, as his 1901/11 census confirm he was born there.  To further complicate the issue... The South Bank born John Calvey named his son John Neal, Neal was the name of the Stockton-born Calvey's father.
