Winifred Willis
« on: Saturday 26 August 17 11:40 BST (UK) »
Hi

Looking for any information re Winifred Willis, born in 1904 in Natal, South Africa, daughter of a Thomas Willis, who was of Irish origin.

Winifred married an Englishman, Thomas Young Bryce in Natal on the 24th September 1927, and died in South Africa in 1966, after she and Thomas had divorced.

I have evidence of her marriage and also her death, (from her will and estate), but know nothing of her parents or siblings (if any).

Could anyone trace her birth/baptism, or any other siblings/ parent's marriage?

Thanks and here's hoping!

Sue

Hi - do you know the name of Thomas' wife?  I found an estate file for a Thomas John, but he did not have a daughter Winifred.

Not sure if you have this, the link to the marriage cert for Winifred

Just a question: did you get the Death Notice for Winifred with her Estate, usually if filled in it will list parents??
