Looks like Arthur Douglas and Eileen Hester (also a Vanderwert) are full cousins ?!?!

According to a family tree I found on Ancestry.co.uk, Eileen is a daughter of Emmanuel Henry Vanderwert (1880), who was a brother of James Anderson Oorloff Vanderwert (1890), who was Arthur Douglas' father..

Interesting...

Not sure ofcourse if it's true. Not all familytrees online are 100% correct.

Thank you Tree Spirit

Yes, it's true. She was married to James Anderson Oorloff Vanderwert before she married Edgar Ambrose. I did not know that Elaine and Anderson had children, so that's a bonus.
Now I'll have to find out when and where they were born (Sri Lanka is my guess) and when they got married.

I think you're right that Arthur douglas and Jean Elaine are siblings.

I cannot confirm the date of birth of Elaine because there are hardly any BMD records of Sri Lanka. Nearly impossible to find  anything at all.

England / Re: Cyrill George Bartlett lookup please
« on: Tuesday 31 March 20 19:45 BST (UK)  »
Strange: Cyril's wife Druida is living at 104 Murray Road from 1943 untill 1951 when she died.
Husband Cyril is at the same address 1935 until 1938 according to England and Wales Register.
When his wife lives there he is nowhere to be seen.
He returns to this address from 1956 to 1965 according to the Electoral Registers.

But where was he after the war until 1956 ? Why wasn't he with his wife Druida ?

Are there any records of the missing years ?

Hi Suz,

thank you, but I don't think that is the right Cyril. I have no records that he had any children with those names.

Australia / Re: Lookup please for Edgar Melville Ambrose

hi Jamjar

you're right. If the death notice implies that the husband is still alive, then it can't be my Edgar Melville.
I also thought that the death notice would have said that Maria is the widow of... instead of wife of...

What a shame, it isn't him. Maybe my Nan was wrong all along about her cousin moving to Australia.

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 / Re: Lookup please for Edgar Melville Ambrose

thank you all !

If I look at the age difference between Edgar and Amelia it's 40 years !
So could this be his second wife ?
Is there a date of marriage to be found ?

If he came to Australia in 1956, he would have been 56/57 yeras old. Isn't that a bit old to emigrate ?
Maybe he alraedy was a widower by then. But to find  any BMD info in Sri Lanka is almost impossible. I haven't been able to find anything at all  :'(

I have a photo of Edgar and his parents and siblings. Maybe if I post it here someone would recognise him ???

what's your opinion ?
