Armed Forces / Harry Norman Lee WEST
« on: Thursday 25 April 13 06:42 BST (UK)  »
Hi I am hoping that someone can help. I have been researching my husband's grandfather, Harold Norman Lee WEST, who supposedly was born in Mt Gambier, South Australia in 1889.  To date, I have found nothing that would support this. However,  I have come across a Harry Norman Lee WEST born in Colchester in 1888. According to the British Army Records. Harry attested with the R Horse and R Field Arty in 1906, but I am beginning to think that these two are actually the same person because apart from the names there are an amazing amount of other coincidences. Can anyone shed any light on this for me? I am particularly interested in the years between 1906 and 1914. All help will be gratefully received.

Australia / Elizabeth Mary LINDSAY
« on: Wednesday 18 April 12 10:06 BST (UK)  »
Hi All
Has anyone come across Elizabeth Mary LINDSAY or possibly Mary Elizabeth LINDSAY?   She is listed as the mother of one of my ancestors, Harold Norman Lee (Lindsay) WEST, and may have been married to his father Edward James WEST.   Harold has given his birthplace as Mount Gambier in SA, but I haven't been able to find any trace of him or his parents rounds that area.  I am trying to get information on both the WEST side and the LINDSAY families.  They may not have come from SA and possibly not even Australia. Harold was born 1887 so possible marriage would be around that time.

Any help out there?

Hi all
Has anyone got any information regarding the family of Harold Norman Lee WEST.

I know that remarried in WA in 1914 and again in about 1928, but I was hoping for some information relating to his family.  I am fairly sure that his father was Edward but I don't any more than that.

Any information will be gratefully received.

Australia / Harold BARRETT Exeter Adelaide South Australia
« on: Tuesday 22 November 11 08:51 GMT (UK)  »
Hi All
I am just going to throw this out to see if anyone knows anything about this person.

In 1913 Harold Barrett is listed as living Cnr Company and Robin St Exeter, his occupation is given as driver.  Harold is also listed on the Le Fevre School Attendance Records as being the parent or guardian of my grandfather, Zola Athos and his sister, Daphne.

I know that that Harold Barrett was not a parent to these children but it is highly likely that he was in a de facto relationship with their mother, Hilda Jarrett.

While this man is no blood connection to me, I would be interested to know if anyone knows anything about him.


Australia / Ida Muriel Lennox COLEMAN nee Browne
« on: Saturday 19 November 11 08:22 GMT (UK)  »
Can anyone help me?  Ida Muriel Lennox COLEMAN was granted a divorce from her husband, Ernest Albert COLEMAN in Western Australia in 1916 on the grounds of adultery and cruelty. I have found the transcripts in Trove.  From what I have found, it looks like Ernest later married Doris Lucy BRIGHT in Kalgoorlie in 1926.  I am interested in this marriage, but would also like to know what happened to the poor unfortunate Ida.  Did she re marry?  Ernest and Ida were from New South Wales originally and she may have returned. Ernest is my husband's great grandfather. Thanks guys, all help gratefully accepted.

Australia / South Australia William Charles DEGENHARDT
« on: Saturday 21 August 10 02:31 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone out there give me any background on William Charles Degenhardt, born 2 July 1882 in Adelaide. His father was Robert Degenhardt and his mother, Louisa Mary Fisher.  I know that William married twice, in 1902 and also in abt 1932. I also know that he changed his name to Fisher prior to his 2nd marriage. I haven't been able to find any death notices for him.  I also realise that some of his information may be sensitive so you can PM me if you choose. :D  Completed
