Although Thomas Cleet lived in many houses during his life, in 1921 he was living at 89 Osborne Avenue in South Shields.

Marriage to George Keyte

On July 31, 1900, in South Shields, Barbara married George Keyte, an engineer who was born in Gibraltar on February 4, 1871. His parents were George and Marion Keyte. George senior, was a surveyor and engineer.

George junior studied at St. George’s School in Ramsgate, and at Durham University College of Science (later Newcastle University) in Newcastle-on-Tyne.

After a five-year apprenticeship, George became an assistant engineer at the Ramsgate Gas and Water Works. In 1895 he became the superintendent of Shields Works and assistant engineer with the South Shields Gas Company. In 1901 he became the manager of the Workington Corporation Gas Works.

George continued his employment with the Workington’s Gas Works until he died in Cockermouth, near Workington, on July 3, 1909. The Institution of Mechanical Engineers published his obituary.

Barbara in Vancouver

By 1911, Barbara was in Vancouver. She ran a lodging house at 1872 Georgia Street. (One of the lodgers was Barbara’s brother, David Stonehouse Cleet.)

Barbara stayed in Vancouver only for a year or so, although it is not clear where she went afterwards.

 

New York City

In 1921 Barbara was a passenger on the Mauretania, which sailed from Southampton, England, to New York City. She was going to stay with her friend, Mrs. Tulney, who lived at 77 Main Street in Orange, New Jersey.

By 1930, Barbara was living at 18 West 11th Street in Greenwich Village in New York City. She was a children’s nurse with the family of Charles Edward Merrill (1885-1956). Mr. Merrill was the co-founder of Merrill Lynch, the American banking and investment firm. One of the Merrill children was James Merrill (1926-1995), who became a well-known American poet.

Many years later, the house at 18 West 11th was in the news. The Merrill family had left the house in the 1930s. James Wilkerson bought it in 1963. His daughter, Cathlyn Wilkerson, became involved with the Weathermen, a militant revolutionary group. In 1970, members of the Weathermen were preparing a nail bomb in the basement of the house. The bomb exploded prematurely, destroying the entire house, killing three people, and injuring Cathlyn and another person.

 

Later Life

In 1934, Barbara had been in England when she sailed to New York. She was still working as a nurse.

It appears that Barbara died in South Shields in 1950.

“George Keyte (1871-1909); 1909 Obituary

GEORGE KEYTE was born at Gibraltar on 4th February 1871.

He was educated at St. George’s School, Ramsgate, where his father had removed on receiving the appointment of surveyor and engineer to the Board of Trade for the Harbour of Ramsgate, and received his technical education at the Durham University College of Science, Newcastle-on-Tyne.

In 1886 he commenced an apprenticeship of five years in the Ramsgate Gas and Water Works, under the late Mr. W. A. M. Valon, and on its termination he became assistant engineer, which position he held until 1895.

In that year he was appointed superintendent of the Shields Works and assistant engineer to the South Shields Gas Co.

Six years later he became engineer and manager of the Workington Corporation Gas Works, holding the post until the time of his death.

He also carried out considerable work as a consulting engineer, and brought out several inventions in connection with the gas industry.

His death took place on 3rd July 1909, at the age of thirty-eight.

He became an Associate Member of this Institution in 1904; he was also a Member of the Institution of Gas Engineers, and a Member of Council of the North of England Gas Managers’ Association.”
