Yes the current generation knows her life in Aust, just nothing before she married, nor her parents. Hence my throwing it out there to see if anyone could help.  As I have said there is very little to go on.  Thanks for the interest.

Yes, sorry, meant to type 1927.  Iím thinking if she didnít know her motherís name when she married, she may not have known exactly where she was born either.  Thanks anyway.

Elsie married Arthur Albert Andrews 5/11/1923 in Aust. Age 23, born Sunderland England.  Mother deceased ( Margaret Edwards) father Thomas Edgar Williams of Auckland nz engineer ( not present at weddingbecause Elsie signed declaration to say she was over 21). At the time she was living at Marrackville nsw Aust.

Thank you Radcliffe for shutting down another possibility.  Thomas Edgar and his wife are most elusive.  One family member apparently had a vague recollection T E was in India for a bit.  His occupation on daughters marriage certificate said engineer.  I trickled around some free genealogy sites in NZ but it seemed a hopeless task.  Appreciate the interest.  Thanks all.

Sorry, I should have said Sunderland, England.  Have probably hit a brickwall, so please don't puzzle over it.  Thanks :)

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.

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.  :)
