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).
