Appreciate any assistance and information.

South Africa / Re: Looking for Josiah Tiffin from Carlisle married ? Ivatt

Josiah Tiffin was my great grandfather. On passenger list to Port Elizabeth, South Africa in 1893. Married ? Elizabeth Ivatt, though I can't find any details on her. Had 4 children: Charles married Vera, Constance married Clive Clark, Arthur married first wife Doreen Dacomb, had three subsequent wives, and Dick married ? Bernice. Josiah and Elizabeth separated and she brought the children to Australia. They all remained except Arthur who returned to Southern Rhodesia. I believe Elizabeth Ivatt also returned to Rhodesia where she died. Josiah lived in Tangynika and was basically estranged from his family (to the best of my knowledge). All Josiah's children have passed away. There are descendants in Australia - I might be able to find out more, though I think my mother has lost contact over the years.

What is your interest and connection?
