Hiya Wicklowlad. Did you use the search button on the top right. There was a lot about Suttons over the years. I think Thomastown put up a photo of a bottle? I might be wrong.

Welcome, Wicklowlad. If you can get a good image of the logo, load it on your computer, and any signwriter or advertising artist will print a sticker or banner exactly the same.

Having grown up within the sound of the hooter, I have no recollection of a "logo" in the sense of a crest or art work. But he may well have had a distinctive style/font for presenting the name. I'm afraid I cant recall.

I don't ever remember Sutton's having any kind of logo, there may have been something on their glass bottles. When I was playing in the 'Boro the only team I remember having a crest on their shirts was Joey's, " forward to the goal" I don't know about recent years, Harjoe and Denis may have the info we need.

I think T E K was over the gate to the pitch but I have no memory of any 'logo'

Had a look at my photos of T E K and the only time they had a logo on their shirts was in the 1950s when the logo was a shamrock with T E K on the leaves
If you have a look at www.soccerintheboro.com and click on A to Z teams then click on T E K United you will see the logo I mean

Thanks, Lads; no solution there so. I don't think logos would have been as common back then as they are now.

It seems George, Molly and the rest of the Sutton family were living on or near the TEK site since childhood. I wonder did the father own/rent farmland in the area that then got developed into a Dairy?

10 years previous, it seems 'our' Georges father, Thomas, was unmarried and living at home with his father - a dairyman, also called George, in Stillorgan

Micheál,

Fatal...you have me going through the census returns. I love trying to piece together families. One of the servants was called Noblett. In the 30's my mother who lived in Stradbrook was pally with Nobletts so they must have settled and married in the area.

Interesting in the 1901 census while Suttons lived at Newtown Park Ave there was a family Jolley living at number1. That was the name of the family who donated the land at the soldiers and sailors field on Monkstown Ave. Might have been a connection.

It was well known around the area that T E K was named after George Sutton's grandfather/father who fought in the battle of Tel El Kebir during the Boar War in India .

Ahem, Harjoe

Tel el kebir was and still is, in Egypt - battle was in 1882.
Boer War was in South Africal 1899 - 1903 or thereabouts. Different conflict.
Neither was in India.

Cant have been grandfather of father who was killed since grandfather was home in Stillorgan in 1901 and father was in Monkstown in 1911. As far as I can make out, no one named Sutton was killed at Tel El kebir
but it could have been someone on Georges maternal line. Either that or an (grand) uncle served in Egypt or maybe was wounded there and was evacuated.

Sorry for being so pedantic. Youre right of course in confirming that the Dairy was named in honour of the Battle of Tel El kebir.

A slighly more modern take on this.

The Commonwealth Graves commission confirms that there is a Cemetary in Tel el Kebir dedicated to 587 casualties of the First Nd Second World - heres an extract . . .

"Tel-el-Kebir lies 110 kilometres north-north-east of Cairo and 75 kilometres south of Port Said.
During the First World War, Tel el Kebir was a training centre for Australian reinforcements and the site of a very large prisoner of war camp.
The War Memorial Cemetery was used from June 1915 to July 1920 and was increased after the Armistice when graves were brought in from other sites, including 15 from the International Christian Cemetery at Zagazig, where there was a Supply Depot.
During the Second World War, Tel el Kebir was a hospital centre and a great ordnance depot was also established there, with many workshops for the repair of armoured cars and other weapons of war.
The cemetery contains 65 Commonwealth burials of the First World War and 526 from the Second World War. There are also 84 war graves of other nationalities in the cemetery."

Theres no mention of casualties of earlier conflicts.

Update

I've come across a post on another forum confirming that "TEK Dairys was owned by my great grandmother" who also mentions that the husband had been killed at the Battle of Tel el Kebir. That takes us back to 13 Sept 1882. I'm attempting to contact the poster for more detail but it looks like George Seniorrs father was the one who was killed in battle.

There were various Irish Regiments involved.

Here's the Egypt Medal that participants in the conflict would have earned. This one has a clasp specifically for the Battle of Tel El Kebir -

Yes, Harjoe's story of TEK was what I believed as well, my Father told me that's why George Sutton called the dairy that name, he knew George as did my uncles who worked for him and they all believed that was the true story.

Just checking dates.

Recall 'our' George Jnr , the last Sutton in the Dairy, was born 1907 (ish)
His father Thomas was born 1873 - 1878
His grandfather George Snr., was born 1835 - 1840, making him abt 45 at the time of the Battle (1882)

So it couldnt have been George Snr's father who was killed - he'd have been too old.

More likely that George Snr had a brother Brother who could have been born somewhere in the period 1820 - 1850. if born in the latter end of this window, that would make him of military age in 1882
