J L Knight is probably John Luther Knight who appears on the 1901 census
and England , living
with his parents at Chailey. The
household at Longridge Farm, Wales North Chailey comprised William Knight
(head, a farmer/employer aged 29) and his wife Naomi Mary (aged 31). Children living with them are noted as:
William Phelps Knight (aged five), John Luther (aged two), Naomi Mary (aged
one) and Edward Jesse (aged two months).
There is no medal index card that I found for John Luther Knight but there are a number of
East Surrey men by the name of John
Knight and this avenue requires further research.
