‘Faith, Hope, Love’

Ernest Bently Wood (1864-1926)

Ernest was the only son of draper Charles Wood and Mary (née Bently). He was born in Baldock, Hertfordshire, but grew up in Stamford, Lincolnshire where his father had a shop at 10 High Street.  He worked as an assistant in the business, and was 20 years old when he was baptised in Brackley on 28 April 1884.

By 1901 he was working as a draper’s assistant at John Lyon’s store in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire  and later went to work at Market Hill in Cambridge (1908).  He married Edith Mary Brougham (1868-) at St. Stephen’s Church in Hounslow on 27 June 1908 and the couple lived at 118 Tenison Avenue.  Ernest had retired by 1911, and died at Addenbrooke’s Hospital aged 62 years old.
