I am thinking this may be her in NSW, with incorrect mother recorded, given that Alma, Rita and Vernon were living in Sydney:

139/1943 READ Richard Henry to STARK Grace

8275/1981 READ Una Grace parents WILLIAM and EILEEN

READ Una Grace Death notice 18APR1981 Death formerly of Fitzroy, Victoria Sydney Morning Herald 20APR1981

In Memoriam for her mother, 1928, Grace is there with no husband or children mentioned, yet those of her siblings are.

2nd column:

Then, in 1930, she isn’t mentioned at all, 4th column:

I’ve had no luck finding other references to her.

She is not buried with folks, or brother William at Fawkner Cemetery. Not buried with sister Ruby, at Burwood Cemetery. Not with sister Eileen, at Springvale cemetery.

I found Vernon in my searches. There are some interesting mentions of him on Trove. Death in QLD:

Vernon Clarence Guest

Event type: Death registration
Date of birth: 1906
Registration details: 1989/7955

A transcript of the marriage should provide her details:

2092/1957 PATIENT Claude to RAPSON Lilian Joan SYDNEY

The mentioned death notice:

PATIENT Claude Death notice 27MAY1978 Death 61 at Maryborough, late of Maryborough, formerly of Welshpool, Victoria Fraser Coast Chronicle (Hervey Bay) 31MAY1978

The person with that birthdate in 1939 has the middle initial of ‘I’, I think.
I don’t understand re ‘inmate’ but she is married.

This marriage is likely to be the one:
1922 Steyning, Sussex
Samuel J T Rapson
Lilian I Grice

There is a death in Brighton in 1997 x Lillian Isabella Rapson.

Jun 1967 BRIGHTON 5H 146


A few ancestry trees are quoting that Joseph died 1951 Doncaster but none seem to have a source record  :-\

Also a suggestion on another that he changed his name to Fergusson.  :-\ (no further info)


Jun 1951 Rother V. 2c 637
FERGUSON Joseph 69

Rother Valley to Doncaster 18.7 miles via M18; 15.9 miles vis A630.

yes i know all of that, its after he has deserted them. the newspaper cutting i attached as his address but cannot find him on any census after 1888 court case. and cannot find a death. any help greatly appreciated

Maybe you did, but you didn’t give any background on him, as in age, birthplace etc.

I checked for births to see if they got back together, as you provided zero information about him and his family, other than the clipping.

He may have changed his name seeing he was sought for maintenance payments.
