Lost kingdons
« on: Tuesday 22 August 17 15:41 BST (UK) »
Hi guys, I'm having some trouble with the Barnstaple side of my Kingdon tree and would greatly appreciate some help, my great granddad Sydney john kingdon had 7 siblings and I am missing the death dates of the final 3
Mildred Ellen Kingdon born sept 1886 was a servant to Elizabeth tock 1901 Barnstaple and possibly married in 1904.
Elizabeth Jane Limebeer born Barnstaple 10 dec 1874 married Richard johns and emigrated to Manitoba Canada, according to his probate records Richard died in 1922 Manitoba, signed by Elizabeth but I don't have a death date for her.
Edith Mildred (or Matilda) Kingdon born sep 1880 married leonard ryman and likewise emigrated to Manitoba, leonard died in 1939 but I have no death date for edith.
Thanks so much for any help in finding out what happened to these three ladies.

I can't see a marriage for that name in 1904 - have you got a possible groom to cross reference?

Looking for possible children there is a Sydney Hicks born Jun 1907 Barnstaple with mothers name Kingdon so that must be the correct pairing.

And an Alfred John Hicks born Sep 1905 Barnstaple.

Don't think this is your missing Ellen because she looks to be widowed before 1911 and is older than the one you are looking for.
