England / Re: Sunderland birth
« on: Sunday 06 May 18 10:01 BST (UK)  »
Thanks everyone.  Unknown exactly how old Elsie was when she died.  Death index only lists father (Thomas Edgar Williams), not mother.  Family estimated 60 years old.  However her marriage certificate in 1923 said she was 23 (2 years older than her husband).

Thank you for helping.  Not sure how old Elsie was when she died, waiting on relative to find out.

England / Sunderland birth
« on: Saturday 05 May 18 22:42 BST (UK)  »
From Aust I am seeking info on Elsie May Williams who married in 1923 in Aust, stating age 23, born Sunderland (not sure which district that is), father Thomas Edgar Williams, engineer of Auckland NZ, mother Margaret Edwards (decd).  (freebdm has an Elsie born in 1902 Sunderland 10a/756). 
My basic skills haven't revealed any other information, except in 1892 a Thomas Edgar Williams was appointed administrator of his sister's estate (Emma Elizabeth Williams), which might possibly be the same man. Would anyone care to help please?

Thank you Isobel, that information certainly looks positive for the correct family, and is most helpful.  :)

According to Family Search, J & B had a son called John Anderson 20.3.1836 born in Kinghorn.  (John married Jane Miller in 1861 and they emigrated to Australia possibly early 1890s, and both dec'd in Liverpool Aust by 1913).  I am seeking assistance with more information on his parents. Unfortunately I also do not know if John had siblings, which would perhaps help identify them on a census.   Thank you.

Rutland / Re: Willsworth surname in Rutland

Yes. Alan, always a possible link.  However I have insufficient wherewithal to research in UK, and have also come to understand that Isaac Woods and Sarah Willsworth may not be Directly Related to the Mary Woods on the tree I am researching.  Good luck with your search though.

 Emma seems to now be the only mystery, but that doesn't matter, as she is not a direct line.    Grateful for everyone's input.

Thank you for checking.  Solves the mystery of the introduction of Willsworth to the Forster family. Great work. :)

Sorry, no information about Mary Woods, only that she was apparently John Willsworth Forster's mother.  3 more generations after John carry Willsworth as a second Christian name in the line I am following.  Thank you for checking
