Title: Family of Osborne(Bonny) & Jane Huggins store keepers in East London,SA 1878
Post by: Julie Green on Saturday 30 June 18 09:33 BST (UK)
 Wondering if there is anyone on here who may know anything of this couple or their sons Osborne and Alexander or their daughters Harriet (who married Cyril Artus in 1910) , Florence who became wife of Drummond Stewart Ross or Ethel who married in 1922 Claude Drummond. I believe the names of some grandchildren were Cyril, Eric, Norah (who married a Garnett) , Marion, Sybil and possibly Geoffrey. Cyril married Elizabeth Uys and Eric married Hazel Anders. I have found here in NZ an old album with pics of these people. My great grandfather was a brother of Osborne  (snr) and I am writing a book about this family of my ancestors. Would love to fill in some of the gaps

I have made wonderful progress thanks to help on here, Have a few more questions if anyone can help please . is there a death record for any of the following?  Florence Jane Ross b. 1890 Nee Huggins or her sister
Ethel Ann Drummond B. 1892  or Ist and second wived of Osborne Edward Huggins  --  Clara Huggins (nee Salter) or Gladys Huggins(nee Hulbert) . Also Clara and Osbornes daughter Norah Garnett? Wondering what year one is allowed to see these records up to as they must be 1960 +.  Also what age do records for births and marriages have to be to become open?

I happened to trip over this 1902 marriage for OE Huggins and wasn't sure whether you had this one yet:

Thank you for thinking of me, I have actually got copies of both those marriages already. If you ever spot anything else you think may be helpful, I would surely appreciate any help you offer.  Could I be so forward as to suggest I send you a simplified family tree so far so you can see relevant names ?     Cheers Julie
