Mavis Lediard Brown in Canada?
« on: Thursday 26 April 18 12:02 BST (UK) »
Hi,
Iím researching Mavis Lediard, daughter of Maurice Lediard, who married Harold Brown in 1944 in Jamaica at the age of 19.  The couple later divorced and family stories state that she was Canadian and returned to Canada at some point.  I donít know if she remarried.
The thing is, I canít find any record anywhere of Mavis other than her marriage record. Iíve tried searching for her father and also canít find anything.
Can anyone help?
Many thanks,
Jenni

On the Jamaica civil records database at Ancestry, I saw that there was a daughter Doris born to Maurice and his first wife.  I believe this is her obit (available on Newspaper Archive):

https://newspaperarchive.com/kingston-gleaner-jun-11-2008-p-27/

LOGAN - Doris Maud Nee Lediard: died on Friday June 6, 2008 at age 98. Funeral service will be held on Tuesday 17 June. 2008 at Bethel Baptist Church, 6 Hope Road, Kingston 10, at 1:00 p.m. Funeral Directors Roman's Funeral Home Ltd. 969-3821-2.

It names her remaining children and the person you are seeking as being still alive in 2008, as well as other siblings.
