Ballard, Thomas Edward



 

Thomas Edward Ballard was born in the parish of Birstall, Leicestershire in around 1880. He was the son of Edward Ballard, a bricklayer's labourer, and his wife Elizabeth.

The Ballard family became settled in Thurmaston in around 1886, and by 1891 were living in Canal Street, with the head of the family, Edward Ballard, working as a market gardener. However, by 1901 Edward Ballard had become a licensed victualler and kept the Barkby Arms at 125, Bedford Street, Leicester. Thomas Edward, who was working as a basket maker, lived with his parents at the public house.

By 1908 Edward Ballard and his family had moved back to Thurmaston where he took on the license of the Black Horse on Main Street. However, Thomas Edward Ballard, who had been married for three years, was working as a farm labourer, and living at 26, Cooper Street, Leicester, with his wife, Edith, nee Mayes, and daughter Edna.

By the beginning of December 1915 Thomas Edward Ballard was back in Thurmaston, and living at 15, Church Street. It was on the 6th December 1915 that he joined the ranks of the Leicestershire Regiment, and was attested to the regiment on the 7th June 1916.

Perhaps because of his age and marital status, Private, 238161, Thomas Edward Ballard saw no overseas service. In June 1917 he was transferred to an agricultural company of the Labour Corps. On demobilisation he was transferred to Class "Z" of the army reserve. He informed the army authorities that his home address remained at 15, Church Street, Thurmaston.

His younger brothers, Ernest William Ballard (q.v.) and Joseph Ballard (q.v.), and Fred Archibald Ballard (q.v.) also served their country during the Great War.

Thomas Edward Ballard died in 1956.
