Alfred Leonard WILSON born about 1879
« on: Saturday 20 October 12 21:10 BST (UK) »
Dear chatters
out of my depth in a new county
Helping a friend with a query and having no luck

Alfred Leonard Kirkwwod WILSON born about 1879
death cert info (New Zealand) has parents as Alfred and Alice Wilson (nee Chapman)
Birthplace Ashford or Folkestone

I can't make a match on any of the above
Found a family in Kent 1881 census but no Alfred son

Can anyone see anything I can't
Wondered about the Kirkwood, which is not always used, but can't see anything using that as a surname option

Bye
Althea  :)

Althea

Link to that baptism, which is actually an Arthur not an Alfred.

Does it have on the death cert how long Alfred Leonard was in NZ, and his father's occupation?

Hi Ian
I am awaiting a copy of the cert so I can read with my own eye  ::)
Believe arrival c1909, a prior marriage and death of wife 1904
Can't get a breakthrough as yet..my only thinking at this stage is that perhaps he was older than c1879 birth

I went through yesterday and looked at every Alice and Alfred Wilson in 1881 Uk census but nothing really looks promising

There is a family at Seven Oaks, Kent..but (forgive my geography), that is too far from area I want..I think
Bye

Further update

Alfred Leonard Kirkwood Wilson's New Zealand death certificate 1929
Has that his fathers name is: ALFRED WILLIAM WILSON (a Nurseryman)
Mother ALICE NEE CHAPMAN
That he was born Ashford England
Arrical in NZ c1909

On his second marriage in NZ, it has widower and the date 14 April 1904..for supposedly when first wife died
The marriage cert had Folkestone as place of birth

Can anyone spot an Alfred or William who is a nurseryman c 1879 in Kent area??

Many thanks
Althea
