Georgina Fleming
« on: Friday 26 May 17 15:01 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to find some living descendants of Georgina Fleming.

She was born in Edinburgh in 1859 and sometimes took the middle name of Helen, her parents being Charles Fleming and Amelia Jane Goldbergh. In the late 1870's her family moved to Manchester when Georgina became an actress, moving to London and touring the country on the provincial touring circuits.

She married John Preston in 1896 and they had 3 children: Margaret Preston who died at 2 months, Amelia Ann Mary Preston in 1885 and John Frederick Edwin in 1890. He died in 1914 and what happened to Amelia is a mystery.

Georgina moved back to Manchester in 1910 and back to Scotland in 1918 where she lived with one of her sisters at Ford Road Crieff until her death in 1929.  Georgina had a number of other siblings who ended up in Leicestershire and Kent as well as in Scotland.

Any information would be most welcome. Thanks.
Martin

We don't do searches for the still-might-be-living.

But you state that any descendants would be from John Fredrick Edwin Fleming who died 1914
(who was wife & kid(s)??)

OR

Amelia Ann Mary Preston b  in 1885 (where was her birth)? and when/where was she last sighted?

Pauline

and have a look at those marriage/ kids birth dates. Looks wrong to me.

Yes that is the Amelia and John Preston.

I posted in the hope that some Fleming relatives might read the post, but it seems I'm barking up the wrong tree (or post!)

Amelia didn't marry but had a relationship with an Arthur Preston (no relation) and they had a child, Marie Mena Frances Preston in 1908.  She died in 1993 and none of her relations could shed any light on Georgina.

So the only possible unknown descendents from Georgina will be via John Frederick Edwin.

When he died in 1914 was he married? Who registered death? Did he leave a Will?
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex
