Timeline

  Lewis Vaughan Lodge
Birth Saturday, 21 December 1872 in Aycliffe, county Durham [registered in Darlington, March 1873].
 

According to the 1881 census, the young Lewis V. was living at The Vicarage, Haverton Hill in Billingham. The middle child of five to his Welsh parents, John A. and Mary. His father was the Vicar of Haverton Hill. They had three servants.

 

According to the 1891 census, Lewis V. was attending and boarding at Nevilles Cross Grammar School in Durham City.

 

According to the 1901 census, Lewis V. is an assistant schoolmaster, living in apartments at Highclere in Hampshire.

 

According to the 1911 census, Lewis Vaughan is a schoolmaster boarding at the Hardwick Arms Hotel in Sedgefield, county Durham.

  "An engagement is announced between L.V. Lodge, of Horris Hill, Newbury, second son of the late Rev. J.A. Lodge, and Ruth, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Milne, University School, Hastings." - Reading Mercury, Oxford Gazette, Newbury Herald and Berks County Paper, Saturday, 12 February 1916.
Marriage to Ruth Milne, in August 1916 [registered in Hastings, Sussex, September 1916].
Death Saturday, 21 October 1916 in Buxton, Derbyshire, aged 43 years 305 days [registered in Chapel-le-Firth, December 1916]. Buried on 29 November in Buxton Cemetery, Ashbourne Road, Derbyshire. 
Death notes "The famous international's end was very pathetic. He had a mental breakdown in August, and went to a nursing home at Buxton, where he was in the charge of a nurse. He managed to get away, and drowned himself in a pool..." - Derby Daily Telegraph and Birmingham Daily Post, 2 December 1916.
Every obituary found in the newspaper is dated either the 1st or 2nd December 1916... one stated that he had 'died in the last week'. That, coupled with the fact he was buried on 29th November, leads us into believing that he died at the end of November, not October.
