An expulsion clause allowed for a recipient's name to be erased from the official Register in certain wholly discreditable circumstances, and his pension cancelled.

Although there are eight recorded cases of forfeiture, in accordance with the terms of the original Warrant, all eight men are still included in the main total and no mention of the forfeiture is made except as a note at the bottom of the War Office List, which covers the period 1856 to August 1914.

King George V felt very strongly that the decoration should never be forfeited. In a letter written by his Private Secretary, Lord Stamfordham, on 26th July 1920, his views are forcibly expressed: "The King feels so strongly that, no matter the crime committed by anyone on whom the VC has been conferred, the decoration should not be forfeited. Even were a VC to be sentanced to be hanged for murder, he should be allowed to wear his VC on the scaffold".

Bambrick
In 1603 Henry, Hugh and Thomas Bambrick were among a number of Irishmen of Co. Leix obtaining "pardons". In 1641 and the three following years four soldiers of the name are in the Irish army lists preserved in the Ormond Manuscripts. In 1659 two men called Bambrick are listed in the "census" of that date as tituladoes in Co. Leix. and as these have the same Christian names (Henry and John) as two of the said soldiers it is not improbable that these soldiers are also Leix Bambricks. Two centuries later we find sixteen householders in Griffith's Valuation for that county (eleven of these in the barony of Slievemargy) and in Co. Kilkenny; three more are in the Tithe Applotment Books of the 1820's. They were located in the part of Leix which is close to counties Kilkenny and Kildare. Notwithstanding the fact that they were still fairly numerous a century ago the name is very rare now in Co. Leix and the other midland counties, but it is quite well represented in the city of Dublin.

Hi, My great grandfathers sister, Mary Ryan married a Thomas Bambrick. The family lived in Ballylinan, Co. Laois and are now all buried in the Arles cemetery. As a child I used to correspond with Mary Bambrick. Mary was a retired school teacher, she died in 1984 and was buried at Arles. I have quite a few old family photo's, one in particular is of a Bambrick family that settled in Santa Monica, California, USA. Would welcome contact with anyone who feels they may have a connection.

Hello, my name is Bambrick and I am a student at College. Lately I have become more interested in my family tree and your web site was helpful...though its hard to trace back through the 20th century with it. Might you have any information on Bambricks in the 1900's? I have a decent amount of information on my great uncle (John Bambrick) who died in the South Pacific in WWII and my grandfather who fought in Europe (Russell Bambrick). Any other information you might have would be greatly appreciated.
Your website is a great resource and clearly took a great deal of research.
Thanks for the information, JB

It seems as though we must be related at some point. My father has extensive info on
our branch of the Bamrick Family, however,
it seems to stop in the Longford/Westmeath

My Bambrick ancestors are from Ireland.

There seems to have been a family rumor that the family history dates back to viking invaders.

The name Bambrick has been listed as an Irish name in geneology books that I have found, however the name is of germanic origin, not celtic.

The name means "By the Bridge"
There is a rumored bridge in Ireland named bambrick bridge or banbridge.

The name is closely related to to the Anglo Saxon spelling of bridge which is very similiar to Old Norse.

I am of the understanding that the vikings invaded Ireland, the Bambrick name had its origins there and that the Bambricks spread out through England and elswhere. The Vikings spoke Old Norse which was closely related to Anglo Saxon, which helped keep few variations of the name.

Please e-mail if you have any more information about the Bambricks of Ireland and the Counties they lived in.

Hi fellow Bambricks,
I know little about where my Bambrick forebears come from, but rumoured to be Irish in origin. It seems to be a very unusual name in Australia (except for in Queensland where my parents are from), but when I was in Dublin for a day several years ago I peaked in the phone book and it seemed to be full of them.
My parents are Hugh and Susan Bambrick (editor of the Cambridge Encyclopaedia of Australia mentioned in a link above), brothers Tim and Matthew, nieces Elinor and Meredith, and my new baby, Jasper Bambrick (who is adorable, by the way).

Tony, Every city that I visit, I always pick up the phone book and call any Bambricks in the book. While in Syracuse N.Y. I called a Bambrick and found that he and I were related. He had one son in Syracuse as well. He came from the Chicago Bambricks who of two brothers that imagrated to Canada, one went on to Chicago and Joe (my Grandfather) stayed in Ottawa. The Ottawa Ontario Canada Bambrick's, being one, I am quite familiar with. As a child I remember we visited the Chicago Bambrick's. What I remember most of all was that they lived close to the El. At night you could hear the darn thing going by very close it seemed
From what I understand to be true is the two brothers were supposed to be master carpenters. I do know that my Grandfater, Joe was truely a craftsman with wood.
Who knows, we may be related somewhere along the line. We are going to Ireland this April and will be dropping in at a Pub that is run by a individual with the name Mike Bambrick. Should be interesting

Hi, my 4th great-grandfather was Thomas Bambridge. I understand that there are a lot of different spellings to the family name. I've been trying to work on my family genealogy but can't get any further then Thomas Bambridge. He came from England went to Australia and eventually ended up in Tahiti. Has any from the Bambrick clan connected their genealogy to the Bambridge family. It would be interesting to see if we are connected somehow.

'Dora Thickett' on Sat, 29 May 2010 12:05:26 GMT, sez:

Have just found my husband's gr.aunt in Australia. She was Ann Maria Cooper, she married Raymond Valentine Bambrick. Ann Maria died in 1946, buried south brisbane cemetery. Two named girls on a few photographs I have, are Edna and Gladys. These may have been children of Ann Maria or Raymond since they did not marry until 1933 when Ann was around 44 yrs. Raymond was born 1904 in NSW son of John and Miriam Bambrick.

I am trying to research the Bambrick side of my family. My mother was Donna Bambrick, my aunt is Kathy, my uncle is Robert, they were born to Darlene(Dee) and Donald Bambrick. Donald's brother was Kenneth and his sister was Eileen. Their mother was Dorothy Bambrick. They came from Chicago and that's all I know. Any info would be really helpful.
