I am not sure if Edith was the daughter of Samuel and Fanny according to 1911 England and Wales Census.

His parents’ names are Carmen Brende (Larbalestier) Lockhart and Anthony Hamilton.

This comment misses his ties to Grenada. His helmet is their flag colors and I beleive his father’s African British is through the West Indies.
