Jeremiah Mold 1878 - 1966

Jeremiah was the first born son of Alfred Mold and Elizabeth Lake from Woodford Halse, Jeremiah was christened on the 9th June 1878 at All Saints Church, Middleton Cheney. He can be found in the 1881 census living with his parents and siblings on the Lower Green in the lower part of the village, his father is listed as an Agricultural Labourer, Jeremiah was recorded as Jerry and was 3 years old, he had two sisters, Ada Keziah aged 2 and Elizabeth aged 9 months - Jeremiah grew up in the village, playing cricket and becoming involved in village activities, when he was 13 years old he was working as a Thatcher, no doubt with his father, who was a Thatcher in 1891 - Jeremiah married Ethel Mary Burgess Bradford on the 5th March 1905 in St. Paul's, Cambridge and their children quickly followed, Walter Alfred was born on 31st May 1905 in Cambridge, Neville, Claude, Irene, and Mildred Florence were born in Middleton. These children are listed on Jeremiah's Service Record. Marguerite was born in 1920.

Inevitably on the 31st March 1915 Jeremiah received his 'Notice to Serve his Country', he was 37 years and 2 months old when he enlisted in the Coldstream Guards in Northampton. He was 6'1 and a half inches tall and his girth measurement was 42 and a half inches.

In or around the year 1922 Jeremiah and his family left these shores for pastures new, and settled in New Zealand, where his many descendants are happily living today.
