He was born on 3 April 1881 at 9 George Street, Battersea (in the registration district of Christchurch, St Saviour Southwark).

At this time, we do not have his actual date of death, but it was in the late 1940s or early 1950s. The website will be updated to give this information.

Florence – from a family photo taken in 1919

On 25 July 1907, when he was 26, he married Florence (Florrie) Jane Weekly at a registry office, Wandsworth. His address at the time was 56 Wye Street, Battersea. His occupation was pork butcher.

In 1909, their address was 90 York Road, London. In 1911, their address was 533 York Road, Wandsworth.

He served in the Boer War and WW1 as a soldier. Some time after WW1, he worked for Walls Sausages in Acton.

They had 2 children. Bernard Frederick Eugene Ient was born on 18 April 1909, but sadly he died that same year – 2 September 1909. The cause of death was 'Epidemic Enteritis Exhaustion'.

Their second child was Margaretha Flora Elena Ient, who was born 24 February 1911 and died when she was 88. She lived in Zimbabwe for many years, where she was a nurse. She died there in January 1999. She had travelled to the USA and lived in Canada for a while. She married twice but had no children.

This is Margaretha as a bridesmaid at Pauline Ient's marriage in 1919.
