  • Notes 
    • Name spelt RODDY in 1911 Census. Tom was listed in this Census as a Marine Store Dealer and employer.
    • The story I was told and which was later repeated to my children was that Thomas Baden's father, Thomas Alfred Roddy came to England on a boat from Russia and bought the name of Roddy from someone at the dock side. I have it in my mind that it was Liverpool but I can't confirm that as my husband died in 1994. I clearly remember Thomas Baden Roddy telling me about his father (possibly his grandfather) and how he never learned to say certain English words correctly. He also knew the name his ancestor had when he arrived in the UK but I never wrote it down. My husband's grandfather was certainly the Thomas Alfred Roddy who was married to Annie Millard ( I have birth certificate). I was also told that the family in Russia had been sleigh makers to the Tsar and in their house there were some enamel commemorative mugs of the Tsar's christening. One of which has survived and is with my daughter in Australia. There were also some wooden models of sleighs that this person had made on the ship on the his way to England.
