FJJ had a good education at a gentlemen's school until 14 when his father (FWBJ) died.  He was taken out of school and sent to work in the stables of a hotel.  Later he became barman for a gentleman called Mills.  Mills died and Mills' father kept FJJ as his chief man, and they became partners in the "Bull and Star", Putney. (pen)
He was also known as "Uncle Ernie" in Nigel Jeggo's family.
1901 Census:  barman at the "Green Man", Takeley, Essex.

Frederick Joseph Jeggo (1909-2002)

(Old Westminster Citizens Association is for former pupils of Westminster City School.)


This is from Bill Harvey (1920-26), a great friend of Fred Jeggo.

"My daughter is writing this for me. I would like you to know that Fred Jeggo died in January. Fred formed the School Dance Band and contributed to the programs of school dances with the encouragement of Mr. Davies, the most popular English master at the time. Fred was honoured by Prime minister Tony Blair in Berlin on the fiftieth anniversary of the Berlin Relief, having been one of the R.A.F. pilots involved in the relief effort, breaking the Russian blockade of the city at the end of WWII. I think that Fred and I have been the longest lived members of our class."
