Hi Chloerog

Just checking - you already have the 1891 Census for his wife and children in West Ham where Catherine is described as a deserted wife?
1891: RG12/ Piece 1324/ Folio 114/ Pg 39

Also do you have the first name of his mother, and the name of his father? Was it this family in Kent in 1861 : Parents Mary Ann, and John? 
RG 9 / Piece 397/ Folio 70 / Page 31

No I do not have that census, I will have to look for that. And I only know his mother maiden name not first names unfortunately.  :(

In the 1881 CENSUS you already have for George, with his wife & children he is:
Head: Geo PALMER 29, Boiler Maker, b Merstham, Surrey.

This is the 1891 - CENSUS: at 28 Lower Road, West Ham, Essex - George is missing:
RG12  Piece 1324 / Folio  114 / Pg39
Head: Catherine PALMER 44, m (deserted), Charwoman, b Chelmsford Essex
Son: George H PALMER 21, m, General Labourer (Boiler Maker), b Canning Town, Essex
Dau-in-Law: Louisa H PALMER 20, m, b Limehouse, Middlesex
Dau: Rosie PALMER 9, b Canning Town Essex
Dau: Emily PALMER 5, b Canning Town Essex.

The following is a good fit to be George baptism &  prior to his marriage

1850 - BAPTISM: at Merstham St Katherine, Surrey
On 24th November 1850 - George PALMER,
Son of Mary Ann and John PALMER, Labourer, Merstham

1861 - CENSUS: at 42 Butcher Row, Deptford St Nicholas, Kent

Son: Henry PALMER 9, b Merstrum, Surrey
Son William PALMER 7, b Merstrum, Surrey
Son: Ned PALMER 5, b Croydon Surrey
Dau: Harriet PALMER 4,  b Croydon Surrey
Dau: Caroline PALMER 9?m, b Croydon Surrey

Son: Ned PALMER 15, Bricks, b Surrey
Son: Charles PALMER 7, b Kent

George 1850, Henry John 1852 - mms HARRIS, Reigate Reg District

Charles 1862 - mms HARRIS, Greenwich Reg District

All of this may be a total co-incidence - but worth examining even if to eliminate:

Birth: 26 Jul 1905, Baptism: 27 Dec 1906
Birthplace: Ingeniero White, FCS
Name: George Frederick WHITTAL
Father: Levi
Mother: Ana nee PALMER
Baptised at: Christ Church, Barracas al Norte
Sponsors: George Harris PALMER and Elizabeth PALMER

BIRTHS 1899:
There is a birth in Barracas, Argentina of Ana Harris PALMER in 1899.
Her father: Jorge H PALMER, English, and mother: Eliza CONEY, English

Ana was listed first. On the same day, was baptised her 3 siblings:
Guillermo Tomas PALMER
Maria Ester PALMER

Clearly the Ana PALMER (Mrs WHTTAL) of 1906 cannot be the Ana Harris PALMER born 1905.

Hi chloerog. I have also been trying to find info on George Palmer, he is my wife's Great grandfather.

the family details fit with your info; the story is he went to Argentina (alone), died around 1937 owning lots of land etc. the family were trying to connect with his estate, but the solicitors (in London) was bombed !
I was told that there was a notice in a newspaper around 1937 re his demise & will, but have found nothing so far.  Could you please say why you are interested in GP ?  Any info may be of use !!
