Nottinghamshire / Arthur Albert Mason Woulidge
« on: Sunday 26 January 20 10:10 GMT (UK)  »
Good day

I would like to get more information regarding Arthur Albert Mason Woulidge. Born April 1867, Radford, Nottinghamshire. Was "sent" (?) to South Africa. Why, when, how, etc would be appreciated. Criminal record? Secondly, did he participate in the Second Boer War? Any medals received? Any/all other information regarding him? He is my Step-Great Grandfather. Who were his parents and siblings, etc.

Thank you in anticipation

I've tried the one where he was born, however they have no records, unfortunately.

Thanks again, Nookie. I've tried the Salvation Army, however they have no records and don't have a maternity ward anymore.

I will try the Valkenberg hospital again, though. No details to date.

Hi Nookie. Thank you for the information. I do have this detail; was hoping to get hold of some type of record(s) that could possibly help me in my search. Appreciate your help.

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.

Palone could be Patone without the horizontal line. It was written by a police official; she was German and did he perhaps hear something else?  Therefore Palone, Patone or even Altona which is near Hamburg I believe.

Her surname, Haberer, I'm told is usually from the southern part of Germany.  Behm is usually from the Mecklenburg area.  Elizabeth was "formerly" Haberer on her son's birth certificate. Therefore previously married or maiden name?  She gave birth to her son at St Giles at Endell Street in 1903.  She was referred there from the French hospital.  Records there show she was single...? She claimed elsewhere to be married to George.

She was a cook and he a valet. I don't know whether he stayed in England. No census records show him.  He returned(?) his son in 1914 to England, from a German school. All very complicated...  Elizabeth seemed to remain in England from 1897 till her death in 1944.

Unfortunately I cannot view the record, however I do have a copy of her death certificatate as well as birth certificate of her son. A card where she had to report to police at start of WW2 indicated her birthplace as Palone.  There is however no further details. No further data for Georg(e) Behm either.  I've gone through the German links you sent as well as some others but no luck. Palone could be Patone / Alone, etc. The Georg Behm WW1 idea could be wrong.  It was the only place where I could find his name.

Hi J
Justin. I'm not too sure whether they are the same people. This is the closest I've got to Georg Behm. I'm hoping...?
