Edward Hawley Wooster on a Crew List?
Edward Hawley Wooster on a Crew List?
The following transcript from the CLIP website gives an Edward Wooster as being present on the Premier:
Name: EDWARD WOOSTER
Age: 17 Implies that Edward Wooster's date of birth was ca. 1851
Birthplace: LONDON
Capacity: BOY
Previous ship: NONE This is probably Edward Wooster's first ship.
Ship: PREMIER
Her official number (ON): 3930
Port of registry: BEAUMARIS

His father was a shipwright, his brother Henry F W2 sailed to NSW as crew, as did George William W and Charles the other brother sailed as crew to NZ. It would seem very likely that the above record is Edward Hawley Wooster.

We understand that Edward spent some time in America with his uncle Jim, before returning to England.

Edward William Worster Witnesses Pickpocket (1844)
WILLIAM BUCHAN.

Theft: pocketpicking.

10th June 1844

1641. WILLIAM BUCHAN was indicted for stealing one handkerchief, value 2s.; 1 sovereign, 1 half-sovereign, and 2 shillings; the property of William Weaver, from his person.
WILLIAM WEAVER . I live on Saffron-hill. On the 17th of May I met the prisoner in Farringdon-street—I treated him—I had a sovereign and a half and a half-crown, in a silk handkerchief—I told him I should go and buy a hat, he said he had one to dispose of—I said, "Fetch it;" he did so, and it was split across the top—I said I did not like it—he asked 1s. for it—I gave him 8d. for it—I took a half-crown out of the handkerchief, and gave it to him, and said, "Go, and get change for this, and bring it back"—he did so—the rest of the money was then in the handkerchief, and I put it and the rest of the money into my trowsers-pocket—he accompanied me to the Nottingham Arms beer-shop, and treated me there—I was rather the worse for liquor—I knew what I was doing when I gave him the half-crown—I had the money when I went to the Nottingham Arms—after that I went home and missed my handkerchief from my pocket—I have never seen it since.
Prisoner. Q. Did you not give 10d. for the hat? A. No—I put the change of the half-crown into my coat-pocket—there was no other man in my company—I did not come into the Nottingham Arms with my trowsers undone, and tell you to button them up.
FRANCIS GWILLIN . I live at Bishop's Head-court. I was at the Nottingham Arms when the prosecutor and prisoner came there—they had four or five pints of ale—the prosecutor was very drunk indeed—the prisoner appeared to have been drinking, but was comparatively sober—the prosecutor went out and came back—the prisoner said, "Don't be a beast; let me button up your breeches," and the prosecutor assented to it—I saw the prisoner place his hand at the waistband of the prosecutor's trowsers, and the other hand under, as if working something out—he then sat down on the seat, and I saw the prisoner put his hand round the prosecutor—Mr. Hopkins made a noise on the table for me to notice it—the prisoner then went out, and then Mr. Hopkins said something to me.
Prisoner. Q. You saw me take it out of the prosecutor's right pocket? A. No—I saw you take nothing out—I never said it was a red handkerchief.
ROWLAND HOPKINS . I was at the Nottingham Arms. Gwillin called my attention to the prisoner—I saw the prisoner with a red silk handkerchief in his left hand—I saw him button the prosecutor's trowsers up—I made a noise with my pipe on the table to make my friend notice it—the prisoner sat a very short time, and went away—the prosecutor left a little after—he had been drinking, but was capable of taking care of himself—the prisoner was sober—the prosecutor called the prisoner Bill—I did not tell the prosecutor—he stayed about ten minutes after.
EDWARD WILLIAM WORSTER . I am barman at the Red Lion, Strand. About half-past twelve o'clock on the Friday night, the prisoner came and remained half an hour or three quarters, treating a number of persons—he spent four or five shillings—shortly after, he asked me to mind 18s. for him—he came the next day for 12s. which he had, and the remainder of the money he was going to renew his license with—he was in the habit of minding cabs for cabmen..
THOMAS SMITH (City police-constable, No. 270.) I took the prisoner—I found a new pair of boots on him, and a shirt—he had bad a shirt washed, and on the following Monday he said he gave 1s. for it.
Prisoner. Q. Did I not tell you to go to Leather-lane, and Blackman-street? A. No, you said Fetter-lane—you said you bought the boots in Blackman-street, and there was no shoemaker's shop there.
Prisoner's Defence. The prosecutor asked me to have a drop of beer; I thanked him; we drank that beer, and a friend of his was sitting beside him, who said, "My friend is in want of a hat." I said I had an old one; I got it, and showed it him; 1 asked 1s. for it; he offered 10d.; I said, "I will spend the odd 2d., and you give me 8d. for it;" he gave me a half-crown; then we had some more gin and beer; at half-past ten o'clock we went to the Nottingham Arms, and there were several persons whom he asked to drink; he went out and came in again; I said, "You might have buttoned your trowsers;" he said, "Button them for me;" I did, and we had a glass or two more of ale; I then went out, down the Strand, and having this money saved up, unknown to any one, I redeemed a few things, and left the 18s. in the landlord's hand; I went the next day to Blackman-street, and bought the boots for 3s. 6d.; I then went to Leather-lane, and gave 1s. to Mrs. Wright to mend and wash my shirt.
WILLIAM WEAVER re-examined. My handkerchief was red—it had a sovereign, a half-sovereign, and two shillings in it.
GUILTY . Aged 25.— Confined Nine Months.

Ernest Arthur Perren
Ernest Arthur Perren
Ernest was born on 11 March 1874 at Rotherhithe, Surrey, second son at Alfred & Sarah Perren of 6 Clare Hall Cottages. His elder brother went on to become a famous cyclist (penny-farthing cycles), and won many trophies.

Little is known of Ernest's younger years until he joined the army (when actually under age). – the 3rd Bn Royal West Surrey Regt. His discharge was later purchased but on 27 May 1895 (when aged 20 yrs) he re-joined the army - this time the Loyal North Lancs Regt.

In Sept 1899 (when a Corporal) he went to Malta and then on to South Africa to fight in the Boer War. Ernest was severely wounded on 26 May 1901 at Donkerspoorsvort, and was carried by stretcher for two days and two nights, frequently fainting through extreme pain, and at one point believed dead. His two friends (the stretcher¬ bearers) refused to leave him behind. Eventually he arrived in hospital at Malta and later received further treatment at the Brook Hospital in South London.

On Christmas Day 1909 (when aged 35) he married Alice Cornish, and their only child, Alice Perren, was born on 21 October 1910 at their home in Silverlock Street, Rotherhithe, Surrey.

Although he had been invalided out of the army, he was a most determined character - his occupations included - H.M. Customs & Excise Watcher in both London and Scotland: Shopkeeper at Blackheath Hill: Wood Carver (mainly of toys) and (later} Superviser at the British Legion Poppy Factory at Richmond-on-Thames, Surrey.

In 1934 Ernest bought his first house at Welling in Kent. His daughter married there and her two children were born there - Ernest and his wife Alice living with them until their deaths in 1951 (Ernest at age 77 yrs) and 1953 (Alice at age 67 yrs).
