Dr. Cecil Arthur Ensor MD, was born in East Tisbury, Wiltshire on 9 Aug 1873 and baptised there on 6 Nov 1873 the son of Dr. John Arthur Ensor (a long serving local Doctor) and Harriett Whyte Ensor (nee Cross).  He lived most of his life in East Tisbury.   He had attended at Shaftesbury Grammar School, Shaftesbury, Dorset, for some of his education where he remained until 1889.  In due course he also became a Doctor and took over his father's practice.  He married Irene Margarita Cox in Minchinhampton, Wiltshire, on 16 May 1899.   He had enlisted and joined the Royal Army Medical Corps (Territorial Force) and had been appointed the Medical Officer of the 1st Battalion of the Duke of Edinburgh's (Wiltshire) Regiment and held the rank of Captain.  He was embodied on 14 Oct 1914 and it is not known in which theatre of war he served, but on his eventual discharge, was awarded the British War Medal only. 

He appears on a list of Old Boys living in London or suburbs in the February 1922 edition of the Shaftesbury Grammar School magazine. By the time of the 1939 Register he had retired to Deeracres, Lisle Court Lane, Lymington, Hampshire.  His death was recorded at the Hendon, Middlesex, Registry in 1949.
