Well found Shaun and Cando

not quite  the grisly  tale  that PinkFan  had been told,  but  a sad  tale none  the less.

The husband did not murder his wife.

Hi guys thanks very much for that. He was a baby according to this clipping, so he wouldn't remember.

Hi there.

Archer here. You are talking about my father.I am trying to research Beryl and would like to create a legacy for her rather than be just a tragic statistic. She seemed to be a wonderful mother and there is a large gap where she should be in our generation. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be much about her out there and we only have a couple of photos of her. She is missed even though we never got to spend time with her.

BTW - I don't think we have met. I was not able to make it to your uncle (my grandfather's) funeral due to being overseas. From my understanding, a branch of the family made efforts for the first time in over three decades to pay tribute. They also took all of his treasured possessions rightfully belonging to his elderly wife including a motor vehicle, WWII service medals and jewellery. These items held strong sentimental value to his direct descendents and we have lost any opportunity to share any of them. We hope they have been held in value and remain within the extended family.

I sincerely hope you are not one of them, especially after some of the shocking allegations you have made here about Bernard and his son, my father. In any case, I will leave an open door in good will as you have a genuine interest in our family.

Welcome to Rootschat.

Nikki what information are you looking for on Beryl. If it is ancestors it would be best to start a new thread, and you can state that information on her marriage and death is not required.

After one more post you can contact pinkfan using the personal message facility. The forum is not the place for family arguments.

Posts can only be modified within 24 hours of being posted.

Sorry, my bad, Iwould say they were in Sydney at the time.
His name was bernard (Bob) Archer, and her maiden name was Sutherland.

Her maiden name was SULLIVAN, Pinkfan.

The marriage posted previously, by Jenn, was her second marriage:

14038/1946 ARCHER Bernard John to EVANS Beryl Jean

Her first marriage:

1752/1941 EVANS Mervyn Keith to SULLIVAN Beryl Jean PADDINGTON

About her divorce and a picture of her: http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article247633991

Hi Nikki,

Pinkfan has been notified of your reply. As Jamjar has already said our forum is not the place for family disagreements so please be pleasant. As long as the posts do not discuss the personal details of any living folk then that is perfectible acceptable post and open to research by members.

When researching family history the research can sometimes bring up information that we may not be happy with but we can not re-write history.

Regards

Sarah

Bernard and Beryl appear to have been a happily married couple and this tragedy was totally unexpected.
Looks like Beryl was an innocent victim in this tragedy. No one was aware that a lodger in the household David Lionel Swanson, who was a very quiet, intensely private person, seemed to have been (one sidedly) infatuated with Beryl.
