Frederick Thomas Scott (1882 - 1950) & Frances Gwyther Jones ( - )

Frederick Thomas Scott was born in the first quarter of 1883[FreeBMD] in Hammersmith, London [1891 census]. He was  the oldest child of John Thomas Scott and his wife Sarah Thomas.

Frederick appears with his parents in the 1891 census return for Britain.  By 1901 we see him in the Royal Navy as an ordinary seaman:

1901 census
Family lore has it that he joined the navy as a very young man (14 or 15)

On Sept 2nd 1907 he married Frances Gwyther Jones at Lake Road Baptist Church, Southsea. Frances was a few years older than Frederick having been born in the 4th quarter of 1879. Her parents were Thomas Jones, an iron molder born on the steam ship Camarthan Bay in 1838 and his wife Esther born in Greenwich, Kent in 1841 [1881 census].

We have the following photograph of Frederick, possibly taken in this time frame.
