WW1 Teare Memorial Page

poppyBetween 1914 and the armistice on 11 November 1918 many thousands of Manx men and women were involved in the war effort. Over 8000 Manxmen enlisted into the services and about 1100 lost their lives in the service of their country and a further 1000 were wounded. Manxmen and women were involved in every part of the war effort serving in the army, navy and developing airforce as well as in nursing, munitions and farming. And although the battles of the Western Front in France and Belgium are perhaps the most familiar names and pictures the Manx were represented in campaigns all around the world. See Matthew Richardson’s book  ‘This Terrible Ordeal’ for much more detail.

The names of those who died are recorded on war memorials around the world. Memorials on the IoM often include the names of men who were born on the Island but then had emigrated, often to Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and then returned to serve the empire in the army of their new country.

Working with Sue Church, who runs the TEEAR, TEAR, TEARE, TEER, McTEAR One Name Study with the Guild of One name Studies (http://www.one-name.org/profiles/teear), we have put together this memorial page for all the persons named Teare we can find who lost their lives in the service of their country during WW1.

We have included details of birth date and place, parents, military service record (although these are very patchy for WW1 as many records were burnt in air raids during WW2) as well as date and place of death and burial. In some cases we have been able to include more detailed information on the family story and pictures. There is more information for each man, in some cases a lot more. Please contact us if you want more details.

This is a ‘work in progress’ and we will be adding more information as we find it.

We welcome any corrections, additions and of course more details including pictures. Please contact us at mike@teareandsons.com or churchsue@ymail.com
