groom,

Interesting I had the 1954 sailing but not any of the others you have found. Newbury address is a new one for me. Always assumed lived with parents at 3, Churchill Avenue, Kenton.

Wow this adds to my Family Tree.

Thank you for your efforts.

Immigrants & Emigrants - General / Margaret Luke b 1906
« on: Tuesday 14 January 14 15:24 GMT (UK)  »
Hi,

Looking for details of Immigration or Travel of Margaret Rose Luke b 1906.

She was a Civil Servant and moved around quite a bit from Uganda in 1950,s to Australia, Cyprus and finally to Eastern Cape, South Africa.

The timing of these travel dates are unknown other than period of 1958 to her final death in Eastern Cape in 2000.

She could have flown but I think as a Civil Servant may have preferred to sail.

Though she was born Rose Margaret she seemed to prefer Margaret.

Any help in any of the destinations on date etc would be welcome.

Last Night a distant relative gave further information on Margaret Luke.

As follows:

Worked in Nairobi, Kenya, Africa


1)   She worked for a Lord Alverston or Alverton (she was not sure of his name but in Cotswold as his secretary. I think the name is Lord Dulverton

2)   Lived in Maidenhead, & Littlehampton

3)    Worked in Australia and Cyprus.

4)   Died in East London, Eastern Cape, South Africa  June 2000 in a Nursing Home. Aged 94


All her life she was a Spinster and worked as a Civil Servant.


Item 4 is of interest as all the other points are if anybody can cast any further light on details.

Would there be a Death Certificate and were she died available.


Regards,


Clive

Nookie,

Interesting your comments.

There is evidence that she was in Uganda up until say 1954-5. Returned to England on Union Castle and then evidence that she remained in UK till 1958 and then has vanished.

I believe if she was in Service maybe she remained in the OS in England That is why we have evidence.

I think she may have returned to Uganda in 1958 and then got het Honours for work done.

But that is why I am trying to trace her in 1958 onwards in Uganda.

I will try FCO 79 for possible information.

Her Honours was Margaret Rose Luke

Hi,

Having done a lot of research my many members of RootChat who I thank for their very hard work.

I have the following details and my assessment of what I consider.

Rose Margaret Luke was Personal Secretary to the Governor of Uganda Sir Andrew Cohen returned to England in Feb 1954 and resided with her father and mother till 1958 in Middlesex.

She was awarded MBE for her Overseas Service in 1962.

I am assuming that whilst in England that she retained either working for the OS in England or the Embassy in London.

After 1958 no trace of her was found on any Electoral Files in England.

I assume she returned to Uganda and worked for the new Governor Sir Frederick Crawford.

Why I assume this is because her Honour was services to Uganda and awarded in 1962.

But I can not prove this and was hoping that there may be some information would come from this Forum.

Clive
