Hi Just checked the witnesses for the marriage and they were F Phillips and Alice Webb
could Alice Webb be the mother or a sibling?

Hi,

I think that I might have found the Catherine Mary WEBB that you are looking for although her father is Edward John WEBB but he uses John in the census records. She is born in 1891 so would be fibbing about her age on her marriage certificate and the passenger list but she changes her DOB between these two so she might just be aging slowly :)




Marriage:  1917    age:  24   born 1892/1893
List:          1923    age:  28    born  1894/95
so 6 years later she's only aged 4 years :)




The reason that I think this is a likely candidate for your Catherine Mary is that her sister Emily Elizabeth WEBB married a James ATKINS,

Emily Elizabeth WEBB    Dec Q 1904    Canterbury    2a  1915
James Thomas ATKINS


James Thomas ATKINS WW1 pension records at Ancestry show his "Military History Sheet", this shows that his children were born in both Kent and Selby, Yorkshire. His address when he was transferred to the Army Reserve on 14 April 1919 was 40 Old Dover Rd Canterbury, (this has then been crossed out and a note that matches his later address has been added) when he was discharged on 31 March 1920 his address was 250 Barlby Rd, Selby, Yorks.

If the  "younger brother in Selby in 1921 under the surname WEBB"  found by Debra is correct Catherine might have been in Selby to have her child staying with or near her sister Emily.

The address on the emigration passenger list, 2 Roff Yard, James Street, Selby, is only 0.5 miles from 250 Barlby Road.



This Catherine also has a sister Alice that could be her marriage witness, and a brother called Alfred John which might have caused the marriage certificate name addition, if it was done later someone might have confused the name.

We can't transcribe the 1911 census here due to copyright but you could look up the family in Littlebourne, Kent.

It says they have had 11 children 9 have survived which would be right if Emily Elizabeth was recorded twice or Alice isn't John and Annie's child.



I've just noticed that James Thomas ATKINS and Emily Elizabeth WEBB have a daughter ATKINS, Katherine M R ATKINS, she marries and is with her mother in 1939 as Kathleen M R (married surname), then her death is registered with yet another spelling, Katharine.



Sorry if this post is quite long but it's amazing how interesting a puzzle can be when you are looking out of the window at pouring rain when you should be out in the garden planting vegetables!  ;D

Hi,

Thanks for your PM 


This could be JLM's service records, he is spelling his surname as MCMILLAN. Oh the link to his records seems to time out, put N54808 into the search box to find him.

https://recordsearch.naa.gov.au/SearchNRetrieve/Interface/SearchScreens/BasicSearch.aspx



and this could be his younger brother using the MCMILLAN name rather than WEBB, but his DOB would be a year out, put N271210 into the search box.




I think you can find JLM's marriage in 1942, and his death in 1972 using this site,

http://www.bdm.nsw.gov.au/Pages/family-history/family-history.aspx

I think you can order the certificates there.


I have sent you a PM about JLM's obituary, because it names possible living people.



I can't see one, but it would be really good if someone could find a marriage or death for Catherine/Katherine/Kathleen MACMILLAN nee WEBB in Australia.
