  • Reginald (Reggie) Bareham was born on June 24, 1894 in Steeple Bumpstead, Essex, England.

    An unusual word is very helpful in narrowing an Internet search, so I decided to enter the name of my father in association with the place of his birth. In doing so, I made a classic find. In the archives of Kings College, Cambridge University in England, I discovered this entry: “66 letters from members of the Bareham family to Oscar Browning... George and Winifred Bareham were the parents of Reginald, a schoolboy protégéof Oscar Browning.”
