Immigrants & Emigrants - General / Looking for Elaine Lena Ambrose (nee Meynert)
« on: Tuesday 31 March 20 12:35 BST (UK)  »
hi all,

Would like to know when the above mentioned woman emigrated to  Australia from Sri Lanka.
She was born 1888 Sri Lanka and died in Melbourne Australia 1988, so lived to be 100 !
She was married to Edgar Ambrose (his 3rd marriage) in 1929. He died in 1950.
So wouldn't be surprised if she emigrated to Australia soon after 1950.

so, my questions: when did she emigrate ? did any children go with her ?
did she re-marry ? where did she live ?

thank you

Australia / Lookup please for Edgar Melville Ambrose

Hi all,

looking for Edgar Melville Ambrose. Born abut 1899 in Sri Lanka (possible Colombo). Father Edgar (Eddie) Ambrose, mother Blanch.

I think he emigrated to Australia, but that's only from hear say (my Nan told me years and years ago).

So, my questios are: did he in fact go to Australia ? When ?
When did he die ? Is there any record somewhere, which mentioned the names of his parents.
Did he get married ? Any children ?

I know, a lot of questions. But since we all have to stay inside right now (is that the same in Australia btw ?), I thought I have more time to research the familytree. Maybe someone can get me some more details about EM Ambrose.....

Thank you for your time.

oh btw, he was still in Colombo 1920, when he broke his leg on February 16 (according to a newspaper article).

England / Cyrill George Bartlett lookup please
« on: Monday 30 March 20 15:31 BST (UK)  »
looking for Cyrill George Bartlett from 1940 to 1969 (he died 1969 Hounslow, Greater London).
He was in the military.
I know he married Dorinda Ambrose in 1943 in Sri Lanka.
Dorinda (Druida) came to England in 1943 with (step)son (?) Walter Bartlett (aged 15 in 1943).
Cyrill did not come with them at that time.

Druida died in England, Ealing in 1951.
In the Electoral Registers (from 1943-1951) Cyrill was not staying at the adress where Druida was staying (104, Murray Road, Ealing). I think with the in-laws, but not sure.

So my questions:

Where was Cyrill all that time ? (From 1943 untill he died in 1969).
When did he return to England ?
And when did he leave the military ?

thank you for your time.
