Looking for Amelia Gibbard's husband
« on: Tuesday 20 March 18 18:29 GMT (UK) »
Hello
I am looking for any information on the husband of Amelia "Millie" Gibbard. Amelia was born in 1886 in Wandsworth, England and died in September of 1976 in Isleworth. I have a wedding photo of her and her husband who I have been told was a Mr. Levett. On the back of the photo it reads that they were only married for about a year when he was killed in the war. Any information regarding a Mr. Levett would be gratefully appreciated. Thank you in advance.

In 1891 Amelia appears to be listed as the sister in law of James Andrews  - Living  in Camberwell

James Andrews    33
Lydia Andrews    27 Brixton, London
Amelia Gibbard    4 Sister in Law Wandsworth

Did Amelia marry with the surname Andrews??

She is still with the Andrews in 1901 under the Gibbard name. Possibly she just took their name and married using that rather than marrying someone called Andrews?

This is wonderful information. Amelia was Lydia (nee Gibbard) Andrew's baby sister so the 1891 census info is correct. The information on the Mr. Levitt and his death sounds right. It is wonderful to have a name and his actual date of death and his parents' name. Thank you so much for filling in my blanks. It would be interesting to know if she re-married since I understand she was only married for 1 year.
