Jesse was born around 1895 in Norfolk, the eldest of five children of Essex Born Nicholas William Hudson and his Norfolk-born wife, Sarah Ann, who appear to have moved to Idle sometime around 1900 when their third child, Alice was born. On 27 September 1918, the Shipley Times & Express reported a second hammer blow for the family: The sympathy of the district will be with Mr and Mrs Hudson of 22 North Street, Thackley, in their double bereavement through the war, they having lost a son on 31st July and another on 23rd August. Pte Albert Hudson, Duke of Wellington’s Regt, died of wounds at the Sheffield hospital on the last day in July and his brother, Pte Jesse Hudson, previously twice wounded, fell in action 23 days later. And as we can see from the stone in the Upper Chapel burial ground, where Albert was buried, the family lost their third son, Ernest, in 1920
