HHS Oakes was one of three sons of Sidney John Oakes (1840-1914) and Sarah Matilda Oakes (1841-1900). Sidney Oakes owned a bakery in Alphington and it’s possible that Herbert took over that family business following his mother’s death. His two brothers, Leopold and Percy, had died as comparatively young men, in 1893 and 1898 respectively. See [J7].
Herbert married Rhoda Stamford (1853-1897) in 1881. The couple had three children: Emily, William and Harold. He subsequently married Priscilla Archer in 1900 and had another three children: Alma, Sidney and Myrtle.
