South Africa / Re: Kenneth Evans Cory
« on: Friday 25 September 20 17:00 BST (UK)  »
Still waiting on the Cape Town records to come back to me although I have now got a person to contact directly.

In the interim I found a link to an Aunty Mabel. Some back, sideways, upwards and downwards tracking has led me to Mabel Moriah Grace Baldie (Born Cory) and her sister Lilian Jane Cook O'Connor (Born Cory). Their parents were William and Mary Jane Cory. How they are related to Kenneth I am still not sure but my Uncle and father remember an Aunty Mabel and Aunty Lilian. Coming out of that conversation another memory came through. There was a young lady by the name of Norma Edwards who died of bee stings at an early age (teens) her mom Was Sybil Edwards.They seem to remember an Aunty Sybil also....so another lead.

Lilian Jane Cook Oçonner nee Cory born 1875 d 19/8/1926 was the daughter of William and Mary Jane. Her estate is on fsearch.  It says that she was born in Boston USA !

Just to throw a spanner in the works. How do we know that the land army record is our Ethel Quin?

Right.  Lets start from the beginning.
 
As we cannot find Ethel's birth we would need:

1. Marriage certificate to Glenister -  To check the witnesses.
2. Her divorce papers from Glenister to see where she was living (and with whom)
3. The marriage of Baird in 1959 to see if he was widowed or divorced.
4  If divorced - the divorce papers
5. The signature of the bride on the marriage certificate to Charle Richardson in 1959
5. If widowed then we know to look for her death

Her daughter says her mothers passenger number on the Braemar Castle Union Line to Cape Town was 417/13 and the ship sailed in 4/11/1953.
She’s trying get any further information she can from a cousin but isn’t holding out much hope.
Many thanks so far for all your help to date but I couldn’t find any birth certs anywhere including South Africa as she may have been from there hence the going back alone in 1953 . With a surname like Quin it’s probably of Irish origin ? I thought as it was an unusual spelling it would be an easy trace !


Does the daughter have proof of the passenger number?  If so, please post it here.

Evlyne Baird, born in England, died in Zimbabwe in 1968.  Zimbabwe was Southern Rhodesia.

Until we get the marriage/divorce papers I think we are going around in square circles  ::) 

However I am going to message Derek with the name of a very reasonable researcher who could get the immigration papers from the Cape Town archives for him should he so wish.
