Frederick Deacon

      Information from Joan, daughter of Maria Sarah Marchant:
Ellen Jane Marchant (nee White) met Frederick Deacon when she was visiting her children Donald, Gladys & Rose in the workhouse. Frederick Deacon's children were also there. They had two children: Maria Sarah (Sally as she was known) and a son called Thomas. Ellen Jane left them all, including her children, with Frederick Deacon. Daughter Maria Sarah Marchant did not remember her very much.
After Frederick died Gladys or Rose took Maria in to work for them which didn't go too well, and she left them to join the Wrens. I know she kept in touch with Donald when he was a prisoner of war in Italy and lost contact with him when they transferred him to Italy. We tried to find him through the Ministry of Defence but apart from telling us that he was alive they would tell us nothing else.
Maria was brought up as Sarah Deacon. She only found out she was a Marchant when she joined the Wrens, and that Cecil was named as her father. Her brother Thomas was registered in the name of White which Maria found out when he died. Why Ellen Jane did this and did not register them as Deacon's I do not know. Maria was definitely a Deacon, adored her father and so was Thomas. She was very close to Donald but not so much to the girls. I gather that Florence is the one she called Rose but I know nothing of William.
