      1910: A P/C to Aunt (Mary Ann) & Uncle (Joseph) said "...sorry to tell you mother passed away today...", dated Feb 9th, 1910, Love to all LB (from Newbury).

William's wife Mary is known to have died in 1910, and there are 2 daughters who could be "LB", either Mary Louisa Beck or Elsie Lillian Beck, assuming neither had married by this time

    Notes 
    • December 25 (Xmas Day) 1883, at the Parish Church in the Parish of Badsey, Worcester, Entry No 157
      Joseph Keen (23, Bachelor, Gardener of Lower Slaughter, Gloucestershire), Father Valentine Keen (Decd), Gamekeeper to Mary Anne (sic) Walker (Age 23, Spinster, Domestic Servant of Badsey), Father John Walker, Labourer. In the presence of George Geden and Sarah Elizabeth Geden (Sarah was sister of Mary Ann, George was her husband).

      Note: Joseph cited his grandfather as his father. This presumably means that he did not know who she was. Valentine was also not officially a gamekeeper (he does not appear in the Gamekeeper records at Gloucester Record Office).

      Note: The Marriage Certificate is a copy of entry 157 in the Marriage Register Books made by William Carmont Allsehook of Badsey Vicarage on 1 May 1914.
