Thomas James, David William and R.F.Gobbett

Classification: Query
Surnames: Gobbett
I am researching the early film industry in East London and have a Thomas James Gobbett born about 1882 in Commercial Road,London,England and a David William Gobbett born 12 August 1884 as directors of the Precision Film Company in Walthamstow.
A Walter Gobbett is mentioned as being at the studio as well in 1910.

Thomas married Ann Mary Groves, aged 22 years at All Hallows, Poplar on 17 January 1904.In 1911 they are living at Liverpool Road, Walthamstow, London. He gives his occupation as Designer and Maker of Cinematograph Machines and Films. They have two children – Thomas aged 7 years and William aged 4 years. He dies of pneumonia in West Ham, London on 29 November 1915.

His brother David was a cameraman, and by 1910 he is filming in in East Africa. He died in Christchurch, Hampshire in 1973.

I also have a R.F.(Robert Fairhead?) Gobbett as a director of Cunard Film Company Limited in Walthamstow around 1914.

If anyone has any connections or info could they let me know.
