Warwickshire / Kate Wilson Oliver 1876-1921
« on: Friday 03 September 21 11:45 BST (UK)  »
Hi. I am trying to find out about Kate Wilson Oliver who died in Wheeleys Road Edgbaston in 1921 aged 45. She was born Kate Wilson Cuthbert and married John Elwell in 1901 in Wolverhampton and following his death she married a widower called Ernest Francis Oliver in 1915 also in Warwickshire.
The couple moved to a grand house in Topsham, Devon in abt 1919 where Ernest was buried on his death in 1923 (he had been a draper but had become a congregational minister). Kate died in Wheeleys Road, Edgbaston and isn't buried with Ernst so i am trying to work out where her grave is. There is also a charitable foundation called the Kate Wilson Oliver Foundation for aiding impoverished gentle folk which is still going and sounds like it could be connected to her but again i am a bit stuck.
Any help with her burial and her life would be great, thanks

Devon / 5 Raleigh Villas, Exmouth

Hi. I have two references to 5 Raleigh Villas in Exmouth, one in 1922 and the other in 1929 for two different women.
In 1922 Mabel Newman Oliver was definitely at 5 Raleigh Villas according the the Gazette and in 1929 Winifred Phear a wealthy suffragette was in the papers as a visitor of licensed houses under the lunacy act(?) of '5 Raleigh Villas, Exmouth'
I can't find any trace this house or what street it was in anywhere and in 1929 Winifred was actually living in Withycombe Raleigh.
I think that these two women were connected, Mabel was a poor woman from Topsham who changed her name by deed poll in 1922 from Mabel Ellen Newman so she may have been a servant but I think that the connection was women's rights.
Any help to find this house and who was using it would be fantastic.
Thanks
Alison

Another day another surname! I just found this while playing around with combinations of names. So it was Bale ...
