Fisher family
« on: Monday 16 January 12 20:07 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to find out more about a Sidney Hockey Fisher (b. 1880 ish) and family.  Believe they were from St Hellier.

Hi,

Thank you so much for the information, it is much appreciated. I understand that SH Fisher served in the RN and died in 1916 whilst serving in HMS Nubian.

Kind regards, Robert

Hi Robert
In my tree Sidney Hockey Fisher married La Belle Wheeler in Hampshire in 1904. They had a daughter Ruth in 1905. La Belle remarried in 1918.

I thought Sidney's father was a "grocer/shopkeeper".

Hi,

Thank you for your posting.
I also have SH Fisher married to La Belle Wheeler 1904 who then went on to marry Albert Connolly 1918. I believe they had a daughter called Rita and not Ruth in 1905.  In the 1911 census there is a Sidney Fisher (33), married for 6 years to La Belle Fisher (30), and daugter Rita (6) listed as a family living in Portsmouth.  My main interest is Rita Fisher.  If you have any more information on her I would be grateful.

Kind regards, Robert

Hi Robert

Yes it is Rita - written in black and white on my own tree - must have been that glass of wine I had with dinner!

I see there is a marriage of a Rita Fisher to Herbert William Palmer in Portsmouth in 1933. There are three Palmer children who may be theirs: Elizabeth,Anne G and Richard William. However, Elizabeth was born in 1925- long before the marriage. Anne G Palmer died when she was only 13. Richard died 1992 and Elizabeth 2003.

Regards
Trish

Hi Trish,

I see from your profile that you are located in Melbourne, Australia, which is probably a lot warmer than here in the UK at the moment. 

As you have a tree set up, do you have any interest in any of the Fisher family mentioned?  My tree is on Ancestry and titled Fisher/Palmer and includes the people you outlined.

Kind regards, Robert
