Thanks for the information col.  Are you saying that herbert and madge were together until 1925 and that is when he exited to Newcastle?  My grandad  was born in 1922 so just trying to piece together when herbert left and Robert hughes came into the picture.

Hi
I have only just started researching for my Grandmother family history when I came across this discussion. I am Doreen Jessie Riley granddaughter & the information I have found is that Doreen mum Maud Riley was also known as a Doolan. It makes it so hard to find information when father is unknown, so I do not know who Maud(Madge) father was Or who was my grandmother Dooreen Riley dad was as well. If anyone is able to help me please let me know .
Thank you
Kathryn

It appears that she  went by several names.
Madge Hughes - Madge Riley - Madge Doolan.
