Lord Oswald Clarke

This directory contains the limited information we have about Kate and Anthony Clarke's 10th child Lord Oswald.

For details of Kate's life, see her own directory.

For details of Kate’s very interesting first husband Anthony, including his families with other wives, see the AJCheeper/Clarke directory.

His birth registry entry shows Lord Oswald as being born in Jun 1900, in Croydon.

We haven't managed to generate any theories about the use of 'Lord' as a given name (known in the U.S., but unusual – to say the very least – in the U.K.), nor of 'Oswald', which is unknown in any of the family lines.

He appears in the 1901 Census entry (page 1, page 2) as Lord O., son, 10 months, born South Norwood.

His death registry entry shows him as having died in June 1901, at 1, in Croydon.

In 2021, Anne noticed that some additional newspapers for Croydon had been digitised, so she checked for Lord Oswald, finding these reports of his death.
