1889. Ernest Faulkner was born 20 Jan in Southampton. Ernest's birth certificate names him as Ernest Falkner and records his mother's maiden name as Falkner. His marriage certificate names him as Ernest Faulkner.

1898. Ernest (9) entered Winchester College as a quirister (young students who sing in the chapel choir). He and older brothers Edward and Augustus all attended Winchester College as quiristers.

1901. The Census lists Ernest Faulkner (12) and Augustus (13) as two of 16 boarders at 64/3 Kingsgate St, Winchester, which is in fact Quirister House, a boarding house for Winchester College's quiristers and in that period, also a school for the boarders and for a few day-boys. Today the quiristers attend a nearby prep-school for lessons. For more information about the Tilbury boys at Winchester College please visit Augustus Tilbury (1887-1917).
