A Victualler is another name for a caterer. Victualler is what Edward Hoares' occupation was as written on the death cert of Alice Jane Hoare.
This is all I know of my Hoare line.My Grandfather was sent to Australia on board the SS Benella in 1923, He was born at Sandhurst England in 1907. He started school at Sandhurst Council Infant school in 1912 and left there in March of 1915 transferred to Sandhurst Council Mixed school which he left in July of 1915. Cause of leaving according to school records was " Gone Away "
So he didn't really know his parents.As for his brother who stayed in England. He ran away from his father (Alexander Barnett we think) to become a boy sailor on the old wooden walled ships on the Thames.
This side of the family are not really interested in the family tree so not much information is supplied from them.
Where are you in the world? I'm in Western Australia.
