John Andrews also known as Jack
is the son, the youngest of ten possibly eleven children, of John Andrews and Elizabeth Isaac and was born on the
of November 1882 in Pinxton in Derbyshire. He was baptised on the
of January 1883 in Pinxton, likely to have been in the church of St. Helen. On the
7th of February 1942 in the General Hospital, Ilkeston, Derbyshire at the
age of 59. The cause of death was Cerebral Haemorrhage and
Arterial Degeneration. His wife Florence was in attendance at his death.

|At the time of his christening on the 25th of January 1883 the parish register for Pinxton shows that the family were living in Codnor Park and his father John was the Station Master there. But by 1891 the family had moved to the Great Northern Station House in Nuthall in Nottinghamshire, some ten miles south-west of Codnor Park.|
Harry is actually Harry Isaac the
illegitimate son of Elizabeth.
John was to follow in his father’s footsteps and work on
By 1901 he was living in Linby in Nottinghamshire and had begun his
working life on the railways as a porter.
Linby is a small village with a current population of less than 250 in Nottinghamshire. It is ten miles north of Nottingham and ten miles south of Mansfield. The village grew up around the mills on the River Leen, from which Linby's name is derived. Small streams known as Linby Docks run on both sides of the main street.
In the Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales (1870 - 72) John Marius Wilson described it as:
The church of St. Michael is much restored, but dates back to the 13th century. There are two crosses in the village – Top Cross, was originally medieval and Bottom Cross probably erected around 1660 to celebrate the restoration of King Charles II.
A local legend claims that the pancake was invented by the women of the village, to celebrate the defeat of Danish invaders who had enslaved them.
Despite its small nature Linby had a colliery from 1873 to 1988. By 1963 it was producing 1.3 million tons of coal with a manpower of 1113 which made it the most productive colliery in Europe. Also three railway lines once passed through Linby, with stations on two of them.
The first was the Midland Railway line from Nottingham to Mansfield and Worksop which closed to passengers on the 12th of October 1964, though partly retained as a freight route serving collieries at Annesley and Newstead, just three miles north of Linby. In the 1990s this line was reopened to passengers in stages, the section through Linby in 1993, but Linby station did not reopen with it.
The second line was the Great Northern Railway, which became part of the LNER, route serving many of the same places as the Midland. It closed to passengers on the 14th of September 1931 but remained in use for freight until the 25th of March 1968. Though the Linby station on this line had closed long before on the 1st of July 1916.
The third line was the Great Central Railway, which also became part of the LNER, the last main line ever built from the north of England to London, opened on the 15th of March 1899. The stretch through Linby, which crossed over both the other lines, closed completely on the 5th of September 1966, but there had never been a Linby station on this line.Since his father was Great Northern station master at Nuthall it seems likely that he was the station master of the Great Northern in Linby, and that John was portering there.
At the same time in 1901 Florence his prospective wife was a housemaid and
domestic living at the Rectory in Linby, and it seems likely that the
couple met whilst both were living there and began courting. In
1906 they were married, the wedding took place on the 4th of June
that year at the Barnby Gate Weslyan Chapel in Newark in Nottinghamshire.
By this time 26 year-old Florence was living and working as a house servant at Winthorpe Hall near Newark, whilst 23 year-old John was living at 31 Carnarvon Street in Netherfield, Nottingham. John was working as a shunter on the railways, presumably at Colwick Sidings near to where he lived. The marriage was witnessed by Florence's sister, Lillian Beatrice Winterbotham Peet and William Henry Bashforth, who was Florence's brother-in-law and married to her sister, Marian.
The following year, on the 9th of July 1907, the couple celebrated the birth of their son John Henry Andrews at 45 Chandos Street in Netherfield. John Henry's son, Dudley thought that John Henry was a twin and that the other child died in infancy, he also thought that John Henry had an older brother who died aged five to seven years old. It has not been possible to trace either of these children and it appears that John Henry was the couple's only child. Indeed the 1911 census states that they had, at that time, one child who is is still living.
This census shows that the couple have moved, yet again, to 2 York Street in Netherfield, a four roomed end of terrace house and is on the corner with Chandos Street.
Wesleyan Chapel, Barnby Gate, Newark
|On the 4th of August 1914 Britain declared war on Germany, The Foreign Office issued the following official statement:-; 'Owing to the summary rejection by the German Government of the request made by his Majesty's Government for assurances that the neutrality of Belgium will be respected, his Majesty's Ambassador to Berlin has received his passports, and his Majesty's Government declared to the German Government that a state of war exists between Great Britain and Germany as from 11 p.m. on August 4, 1914.' At the time there was a clamour to volunteer for a war that would have been over by Christmas 1914, at the age of 31 it isn't known how John reacted but there is no record of him serving in the military during the war, but 'Railway Servants employed in the manipulation of traffic and in the maintenance of the lines and rolling stock' was on list C of the reserved occupations and so he is likely to missed the horrors of the Western Front. On the 10th of November 1928 the couple's 21 year-old son, John Henry married 20 year-old Noreen Dudley in St. Matthias' Church on St. Matthias Road in the St. Ann's district of Nottingham. In December 1938 it was announced in the House of Commons that in the event of war, a National Register would be taken that listed the personal details of every civilian in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. This Register was to be a critical tool in coordinating the war effort at home, it would be used to issue identity cards, organise rationing and more. On the 3rd of September 1939 Britain declared war on Germany and Britain’s involvement in the Second World War began. Subsequently it was announced that National Registration Day would be the 29th of September 1939.||

On the 1881 census the family home
is 5 North Gate in Newark.
|1, 3 and 5 North Gate No. 1 and 3 are a pair of houses from the late 17th century, now in use as offices. The original roofing has been replaced with modern concrete tiles and pantiles. The bay windows are late 19th century. No. 5 is of the same period but in the local blue lias limestone rather than the much more common brick. The doorway appears to be relatively modern, though reasonably in keeping with the period. All are listed Grade II. - Alan Murray-Rust|
