Thank you in anticipation


South Africa / Mary Rolt Hostel Mowbray
« on: Saturday 18 March 17 19:42 GMT (UK)  »
Beatrix Dorothea Bosman was living at the Mary Rolt Hostel in Mowbray, Cape Town, South Africa prior to giving birth to her son, Ian Neville Bosman.  She gave birth on 8 March 1934 at the Booth Memorial Hospital in Cape Town.  She herself was born on 18 June 1911 in Ceres, Cape Town.  She also worked at the Valkenberg Hospital, situated in Observatory, Cape Town.

I'm trying to find any information regarding her from any of these institutes, also with the aim of locating Ian Neville Bosman's biological father.

Other Countries / Search for Georg Behm data
« on: Saturday 04 March 17 08:43 GMT (UK)  »
I'm trying to find more information on Georg Behm.  The only information that I have is as follows :

Firstly, he was injured during WW1 with these details: Krgsfreiw.  (Kriegsfreiwilliger) Georg Behm - Harburg a. E. (an der Elbe) - leicht verwundet (light wounded).  He was in the 2nd company of the Reserve-Infantry-Regiment No. 208.  He was wounded in the fights in the areas of Bixschoote, Dixmuiden and Verbrandesmis from October 22 to November 14, 1914.

Secondly, Gefr. (Gefreiter) Georg Behm - Ottensen, Altona - abermals u. (und) zw.
(zwar) schw. (schwer) v. (verwundet) - (it means once more wounded but
heavily wounded).  Dated 08/09/1915.

Thirdly he married Elizabeth Haberer around 1897.  She was born 11 July 1868.

Any information would really be appreciated.

England / Will St Giles Workhouse, Endell Street help me in my search?
« on: Wednesday 15 February 17 11:07 GMT (UK)  »
I’m battling to trace my maternal great grandmother and great grandfather and would appreciate any help.  The only information that I have is as follows :

Elizabeth Behm née Haberer was born on 11 July 1868 at Palone (Patone?), Germany.  This place does not seem to exist.  I’m also not sure whether Haberer is her maiden name or a previous married name.

She seemed to have moved to England in 1897 as a cook.  This seemed to be the year she married George Behm as well; I’m not sure in which country.

On 6 August 1903 she stayed at 13 Whittaker Street, Sloane Square.  The document also says her residence was St Giles Workhouse, Endell Street.  I’m not sure why both addresses were stated on the same document (birth certificate of her son, Charles George Henry Behm, born 29 July 1903).  It seemed that he was born at St Giles Workhouse?  Don’t know where the father was at that stage.

During 1911 she stayed at 59A South Audley St, London W; assumedly still a cook.

Charles George Henry Behm, her son, joined school in England on 20 April 1914 after returning from Germany.  Elizabeth Behm née Haberer (Nana) assumedly remained in England over this period, however George and Charles George Henry Behm (father and son) were in Germany where the son went to school.  WWI started and the father returned to England with his son.  The son went to an English school, St Pauls Knighsbridge School.  The son left school on 7 September 1917, having attained standard 7.

On 19 October 1939 Elizabeth was staying at 48 Pelham road, Gravesend.  On this day she was at the Rochester City Police and registered as a female enemy alien, non-refugee.  She was cleared from interment and restrictions.  I don’t have any data about how she was interned during the First World War.  The document indicated she was a married woman, retired, however there is no data of George Behm.

Elizabeth Behm née Haberer died on 2 December 1944, aged seventy six.  Her address was 48 Pelham Road, Gravesend.  She was in the Gravesend and North Kent hospital, Gravesend at the time of her death.

England / Ashley family

I'm trying to compile a family tree for the Ashley family.  I've used FreeBDM to try and piece it together, however I'm not sure whether this is correct?  Some places I've also gone further than normal.  Any help would be appreciated.

1.   John Ashley (farmer) born 1781 at Ramsbury, Wiltshire, married on 8 November 1804 at Farringdon, Berkshire to Sarah Newman, born 1777 and baptised 18 April 1777.
They had ? children, John Ashley born 1807.

2.   John Ashley born 1807 at Faringdon, Berkshire (think he spent his later years with Priscilla Clark, born 1808 at Farringdon, Berkshire).  He married Ann.  They married December 1837 at Faringdon.
They had ? children, John Ashley born 1841.

3.   John Ashley born 1841 at Ramsbury, Wiltshire.  He was a farrier, currier and farmer.  Married Martha Ann Phelps (gloveress) at St Luke’s, Finsbury, London on 29 August 1863.  She died 1879, Hungerford, aged 49.  Born 1831 at Yeoville.  (Her Father’s name was Thomas Phelps, born 10 November 1807 and baptized 25 December 1807 at Yeovil Independent Church, Office Clerk / glove maker / book publisher / commercial traveler.  His Father was Thomas Phelps who married Ann Ellis at Yeovil St John on 4 September 1803.  Wife Ann Phelps (née Herring), gloveress born Bradford Abbas, Dorsetshire.  They married Yeovil St John 24 December 1827).  Children Elizabeth Sherring Phelps born 18 March 1828; Martha Ann Phelps born 1831, Mary Phelps (gloveress) born 1833; Thomas Phelps, born 1836 (solicitor’s general clerk); Ann Phelps 1843).

She had one daughter, Florence Mary Hill Ashley, born 13/02/1907.  She was supposedly a Foundling?  Obviously not possible, as the mother was known.  However she was given up, but no information available as to how.

« on: Monday 22 August 16 21:43 BST (UK)  »
Good day.

I'm trying to locate the Behm family tree.  George Behm married Elizabeth Haberer(?) around 1898, supposedly in Germany.  She was born 11 July 1868, listed as birth place Palone( ?), Germany.  Elizabeth went to England in 1897.  Not sure whether George went with.  She died 2 December 1944.  Can anyone please help trace their roots?

Many thanks

Elizabeth Behm was born 11 July 1868 in Germany.  She came to England during 1897.  She was interned during the Second World War (records show that she was born in Germany - Palone?) - not sure what happened during the First World War.  She died 2 December 1944.  She was married to George Behm, supposedly also from Germany.  She was my Great Grandmother.  I would love to track her and her ancestors roots, including my Great Grandfather.  Is there anyone that could possibly help?  I've searched numerous sites but cannot trace their names or any details about their German heritage...
