Biographical Details

George Edward Sydney Lintott (1902-1950s), known as Jock, was the younger brother of Rosina Beatrice Lintott who was the fiancée of George Sladden from 1915-1919.

Jock Lintott was born in Hampstead, London, on 28th September 1902, the youngest of three children of George Edward Lintott, a mechanical engineer, and his wife, Fanny (née Ives).  He was baptised at Lancing (where his maternal grandparents lived) on 2nd August 1903.

Jock’s father died in March 1906 at Hendon when he was three years old.  The following year, Jock’s mother married again to Edward William Wilkinson, a fishmonger.  Jock became half-brother to Edward (c1906), Fanny (1908), Lorna (1913) and James Frank (1915).

By 1911 they were living at 8 Whitchurch Lane, Little Stanmore, Middlesex, in 1911.  Jock is mentioned in several letters of January 1916 as he had a nasty accident just after Christmas when he was run over by any army motor-lorry.

Jock married Edna Violet Woodland in 1924 in the Willesden district.  They had two children:  Pauline Vera Edna (1924) and Peter G (1927-1937).  They lived at 12 Roe End, Wembley, in 1939.  Jock was a greengrocery roundsman.

Jock is thought to have died some time in the 1950s.  On 11th March 1949 46-year-old Mrs Edna V Lintott of 12 Roe End, London NW9, a housewife, left Southampton bound for New Zealand.  New Zealand was her country of intended future permanent residence.  In electoral registers for Otaki/Heretaunga district, Wellington, in 1949 and 1954 she was described as married but, by 1957, she was described as widowed.
