HMS MARY ROSE WW1 100TH ANNIVERSARY 17th October 2017

The Catalysts of my One-Name Study – Thomas Edward Teear

I joined the Guild of One-Names Studies in November 2012 after having attended a Maritime Seminar at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich which was being organised by the Guild and was open/as always to non-members. Thomas Edward Teear was the catalyst for my actions. Having found out about him in my own Family History research, that he was involved in a devastating attack in the North See during WWI involving a convoy of Merchant ships, HMS Mary Rose https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Mary_Rose and HMS Strongbow https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Strongbow_(1916) and two German light cruisers SS Bremse and Brummer.

Finding there was little on the web about this, at the time. I was contacted by a lady in Canada Kristen Den Hartog (an author, who was doing some research for a new book she was working on as her grandmother’s brother was one of only 10 men who had survived the attack). So we joined forces and together with her sister Tracy Den Hartog Kasaboski, started to research the story and whole crew of HMS Mary Rose in order to find out as much as we could and make connections with Living family. This resulted in masses of data being collected and many contacts who were also interested in the story of HMS Mary Rose. In 2013 Kristen, Tracy and I met up at the National Archives in Kew, London to look at some official records in relation to the attack on the convoy.

I wanted to do ‘Something’ to remember the events of the 17th October 2017 in my own way and pay my respects to ALL the men who died in the attack by SS Bremse and Brummer.

For this reason, I started the HMS Mary Rose WW1 100th Anniversary project. The following pages are dedicated to the men of HMS Mary Rose

‘In Remembrance’ of their courage & ultimate sacrifice and will include information, stories and photo’s, on the immediate family of the crew members, links to the story, links to related websites and other projects (including the initiative by the Imperial War Museum ‘Livesofthefirstworldwar’)

*************

HMS Mary Rose WW1 100th Anniversary Event Plans

This event is being organised to bring together relatives of the Crew who lost their lives fighting for their country and the survivors of the days events and to ‘Remember Them’ on this 100th anniversary.

The event will start on the 13th of October with a round trip by myself visiting the Naval memorials at Plymouth, Portsmouth and finishing at Chatham. In each case the event will start at 11am with a Roll Call of ALL the men who served on HMS Mary Rose, on this ill-fated mission, then the Wreath laying. Afterwards there will be Tea & Cake for the attendees of the event as a Thank You for attending.

(see links below for location details. If you clink on the map tab on the CWGC site, you will see how easy it is to find the memorial)

Plymouth Naval memorial http://www.cwgc.org/find-a-cemetery/cemetery/142001/PLYMOUTH%20NAVAL%20MEMORIAL

The following day, I will travel to Portsmouth where there will be a Wreath Laying on the 15th October 11am (as above)

Portsmouth Naval memorial: http://www.cwgc.org/find-a-cemetery/cemetery/144703/PORTSMOUTH%20NAVAL%20MEMORIAL

Then I shall be travelling to Chatham for the 17th where the final Wreath Laying Event will take place at 11am (as previously).

Thomas Francis McTear b 1849 Ireland

I am excited to have been allowed, with the approval of the connected family in the USA, to share with you some research done on the US family line of Thomas Francis McTear b 1849 Ireland by his descendant Thomas Francis ‘Tommy’ McTear III b 1942 – d 2012.

Thomas Francis McTear b 1849 Ireland

Below is a introduction piece sent to me by John McTear:

“The companion letter addressed to me in July, 1991 was authored by Thomas (Tommy) McTear and summarizes the extensive research he had done on the McTear and McKeown families. He had spent much time in the north of Ireland researching church and local community records tracing the lineage of both families.

One family myth of uncertain origin was the name McTear was changed when our great-grandfather arrived in the US. Tommy’s research proved that to be wrong.

When we were kids, he was Tommy and I was Johnny. That’s why I refer to him as Tommy in this letter.

His research is condensed in the letter along with his humorous and slightly irreverent, commentary. His style of writing reflects the general norms of speech among several generations of McTear’s in the United States. We are a boisterous and irreverent lot for the most part.

Tommy’s grandfather (Thomas) and my grandfather (John) are the first generation born in the US. Brothers Thomas and John married sisters, Margaret and Martha McKeown. Each settled in Philadelphia and are the patriarchs of the McTear clan in Philadelphia.

Thomas settled on 2nd St. in Philadelphia and was in the real estate business. John settled on 8th St. and worked an accountant. The families were close and the cousins spent much time together while growing up.

Tommy is the oldest grandson of Thomas and has an older sister, Mary. I am the oldest grandson of John.

I have found other families named McTear, as I’ve traveled around the US, who were likely not related. There were McTear’s in San Diego CA I located during a business trip in 1970. I wrote to them but they never replied.

There have been at least two almost famous black athletes named McTear over the past 50 years. Solomon McTear was a black boxer from Chicago who was a sparring partner for Mohammed Ali. Another was an almost world-class sprinter from Florida named Houston McTear. Some from my father’s generation believed the name was appropriated from real estate signs in Philadelphia since McTear’s have been in real estate from the first quarter of the 20th century. Nobody knows for sure.

When Tommy sent me his letter, he was hoping I would try to continue research in the genealogical records of the Mormon Church since I was living in the Salt Lake City area. Sadly, I never did.

I left the Philadelphia area in 1974 and may have been the first of this clan to have done so. I moved frequently and with no email or Facebook to rely on, lost contact with almost all the cousins and their families. I occasionally find relatives on FB but I don’t know if anyone has continued with a family tree beyond Tommy’s research.

Over the years, there have been several McTear descendants from different generations query about family history. When they do, I send them Tommy’s letter.

Tommy’s work is a treasure. His letter reveals his humor along with his extensive and serious research. His widow, Nancy has agreed to allow his letter to be posted and published on web sites. We want to be sure the work is attributed to Tommy.

By clicking on the below, you will be able to read for yourselves the research done by Tommy McTear

McTear genealogy Tom McTear 1991

                                 

 

Above are the US Naturalization Papers of Thomas Francis McTear

(details below)

Name Thomas McTear
Declaration Age 41
Record Type Declaration
Birth Date abt 1846
Birth Place Ireland
Declaration Date 30 Aug 1887
Declaration Place Pennsylvania, USA

Additional Research:

Naturally I have been looking at Tom’s research to see if I could add anymore to this US McTear line. Hopefully  you will have read Tom’s work and spotted that he mentions two other children for Thomas and Mary Jane (nee Black) McTear. The family had originally thought these two children may have been born out of wedlock, possibly in Ireland, before the family emigrated to the USA. I have since come across two documents which show that both Mary and Joseph were actually born and died in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Burial Entry for Joseph b19 March 1878 – died 23rd December 1886

 Joseph McTear was born in Philadelphia on the 19 March 1878 and is recorded in the 1880 Census for the family, he died aged 8 on the 23rd December 1886 and was buried on the 31st December as recorded in the Pennsylvania and New Jersey, Church and Town Records, 1669-1999. How sad this must have been for the family with his death occurring just before Christmas.

Burial entry for Mary McTear b abt 1885 – d 09 July 1886

 Mary McTear was also born (in between census records, possibly why she was missed in Tom’s research) in Philadelphia in abt May 1885 and died aged 13 months on 09 July 1886 and her burial was on the 11 July 1886, again this has been sourced in the Pennsylvania and New Jersey, Church and Town Records, 1669-1999.

How sad to have had two young children pass away so close in the same year, it must have been a really hard time for the family.

Early Connections of the Teear name in Saddington & Husbands Bosworth, Leicestershire

SADDINGTON CONNECTIONS:

Through the research done of the Teear family name, the earliest links for the name have been found in the villages Husbands Bosworth, the ‘Hot Spot’ of the Teear name and the nearby village of Saddington in Leicestershire, to which the first mention of the names has been recorded.

(St Helen’s Parish church in Saddington is situated opposite the Queens Head public house on Main street)

St Helen’s Parish church in Saddington

Joseph Teear b 1651 and sister Elizabeth b 1653 the children of a John Teear of Saddington who’s baptisms were recorded at the Parish Church of St Helen’s in the village. You can find out more about St Helen’s by clicking on this link: https://www.leicestershirechurches.co.uk/saddington-st-helens/

The Teear name appears to have been connected to the village of Saddington for about 50+ years from at least 1651 – 1712. As with later generations, the Teear family had strong connections with St Helen’s Parish Church. My 7x Great Grandfather Joseph Teear b 1707 in Saddington is recorded as a Church Wardern here in 1728 and his own father John Teear also had connections to the church working alongside the Church Wardens in 1658. Although a number of Teear family members died in the village I could not find any of their headstones in the graveyard of St Helen’s.


HUSBANDS BOSWORTH CONNECTIONS:

The village of Husbands Bosworth in Leicestershire is very much the ‘Hot Spot’ for  the Teear surname. The family name has been connected to the village since  1729, with the last know living Teear moving out from the village to nearby Welford in Northamptonshire around 2005. I soon discovered on my very first visit to the village in 2011 that they were a well known surname. I bumped into a lovely chap who as soon as I mentioned the name, started telling me some wonderful stories related to the Teear family.

All Saint’s Parish church, Husbands Bosworth, Leicestershire

My 6 x Great Grandfather Joseph Teear b 1707 in Saddington, moved into the village of Husbands Bosworth after marrying Sarah Ward in nearby Foxton, Leicestershire in 1728.

(All Saint’s Parish church is situated on the corner of the main road which runs through the village, opposite Bosworth Hall Park Lodge at the end of the village on the Theddingworth road)

You can find out more about the history village of Husbands Bosworth via this link: https://www.husbandsbosworth.info/index.php/home/a-brief-history-of-bosworth

In the Will of my 6 x Great Grandfather Joseph Teear it is mentioned that his profession was that of a Victualler, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victualler not really much of a surprise to me as on my first visit to the village in 2011 I was told that there was once 16 pubs in the village and it’s not that BIG a village.

As early as 1741 Joseph Teear was clearly a man with some money as he is listed in the UK Poll Book Records for that year.

(as we all know in those days you were only entitled to Vote if you were in the Poll Books and to be in them you had to have had a decent amount of money or own property, for which you needed money)

His son Robert Teear, my 5x Great Grandfather was also a Victualler, in 1775 at the Red Lion Inn (see image below) as he too is recorded in the UK Poll Books for 1775

Despite all my searches of the graveyard at All Saint’s parish church and although from parish burial records I knew he WAS buried their, I can find no headstone for Joseph Teear or his wife Sarah (nee Ward). However, I did find a very large one for his son Robert Teear b 1734 my 5 x Great Grandfather and his wife Elizabeth (nee Russell), in fact it was so large I had missed it on a recent visit to the village, guess I wasn’t expecting to find a big one as I did.

I kind of had a ‘Eureka’ moment as I was looking through the archives of the Husbands Bosworth Historical Society one day and looking through a book which listed the burials at All Saint’s, I spotted the entry, jumped out of my chair and almost ran down to the church to search for it. How the heck I missed it before I do not know as it was LARGE (well for the Teear’s anyway)

  (As you can see below Robert’s & Elizabeth’s headstone is situated right next to a Yew tree, right outside the church door on the west side of the church)

Robert Teear b 1734 died in 1812 aged 78 years of age and he was buried on the 26th August 1812 by curate W.Roberts, 9 years after his wife Elizabeth (nee Russell).

 

Interestingly I spotted a very odd item tucked away in the corner of All Saint’s church on another visit and when I asked about it, was told it was the mode of transport many years ago which took a village member to their final resting place, kind of got me wondering how many of the Teear family had made their last journey this way too.

“A little story to tell about the day I found the headstone Robert & Elizabeth (nee Russell) Teear. Apart from running down the high street knocking folk out the way as I ran (no not really) When I finally found their headstone, a very strange thing happened. It had been a dull day and had been raining a bit (common weather for gravestone hunting I know) when I spotted the headstone I knelt down before it and said a few meaningful words, then all of a sudden the clouds broke and a ray of sunshine poured down on their grave, it was a very emotional moment I can tell you that”

ONS Blog!!!

2017 heralds the start of a Blog for the ONS, mainly due to the fact there is often a time lapse in between posts. If you noticed at the bottom right of the Home Page you will see a calendar, which is updated when anything news is added to the site. Collecting and editing data is a long job and I didn’t want folk to think the site/project was inactive, when I’m often working behind the scenes for hours at a time.

I aim to keep the Blog updated monthy, letting folk know where I’m at and what is in the pipeline. I have been working with US Directories towards the end of 2016 and have almost collected all the data for this. Next will be the editing of this data and then I can upload to the site.

I’m also doing research for 3 people on their ONS contacts and as you know this can take sometime.

So PLEASE do keep popping back to this site to see what’s coming up. If you have any questions or needs any help, do contact me on admin@teear,one-name.org and I will be happy to assist.
