Arthur and Annie Day in East London
« on: Friday 10 August 18 15:24 BST (UK) »
Im desperately trying to find dates and/or a marriage record for Arthur Harold Day, born in Port Elizabeth in ca. 1906 and Annie Maria Johanna Fourie, dates unknown.
They lived in East London in the late 1920s, have a son and daughter, born 1928 and 1929.
They later moved to CT, where Arthur was an accountant and Annie is supposed to have died ca. 1935 but I have no records for this event either. Arthur died in 1946.
Are there any Day or Fourie relatives that know this couple? Im trying to trace their ancestors.

Welcome to Rootschat

The only Arthur Day I can find was aged 20 and arrived Southampton from Durban 24.11.1925.  Address shown as 44 Eve Rd West Ham
Next entry on the same passenger list is a Henry James Day aged 46 but he gives an address in Plymouth


Just discovered there is an East London in SA so ignore all the above ::)

Hi
Welcome to Rootschat :)
Have you seen Arthurs probate on familysearch.org?
It seems to suggest he married again after his first wife  (Jean Day formerly Fourie)died in c 1935.
Gives a few more details but you may have this already, if not , I can post a link.

Oh well done Carol, could nt find Annies death, so she seems to have been born in Shropshire.
Arthurs probate is also on there, though I see Annie was  77 years old in 1942  ...hmmm

Something not right there.  Annie was 77 in 1942 so born c1865 yet post says Arthur was born 1906??

Was she his mother?

There is an East London SA marriage in 1944 between Arthur Henry Day and Isabell Anderson nee Bryce on Family Search

There is a family tree on Ancestry giving details of the family, Arthurs parents given as Harold Birkbeck Day and Charlotte Anne Murray

Thanks for the feedback. I have a tree on family search with AH Day (my maternal grandfather) and the probate record is the only document I have with an approx. birth year. Arthur Harold DAY is my grandfather and I can't find any paper trail for him besides this probate record.

His wife, my maternal grandmother, Annie Maria Johanna Fourie hasnt any entries anywhere either, that I can find. Im trying to establish whether his father was Harold Birkbeck DAY born in Ripley,Derbyshire - son of Arthur DAY, born 1856 in Bedfordshire, England.

The naming pattern seems to be an accurate indicator but without documented verification, Im stuck.
