Harold Norman Lee WEST Mt Gambier South Australia
« on: Thursday 24 November 11 02:04 GMT (UK) »
Hi all
Has anyone got any information regarding the family of Harold Norman Lee WEST.

I know that remarried in WA in 1914 and again in about 1928, but I was hoping for some information relating to his family.  I am fairly sure that his father was Edward but I don't any more than that.

Any information will be gratefully received.

Could this be a brother with the "Norman Lee Wast" bit makes me think there could be a connection.

Hi BarossaPearl,

Sorry, I cannot see a birth listed, nor a marriage, nor any births, listing him as father, not any deaths listing this man as a relative in SA.  :'(

Cheers Kris  :)

Hi,

I see in  THE RYERSON INDEX that there is a death notice for a Harold Norman West 89 of Gladesville published in the Sydney Morning Herald dated 17th March 1981.

With West being a common Surname it is likely not to be your Harold but maybe worth invesigating.

Regards
Gerry

Interesting that Tedscout's Edward West had a mother with the maiden name Herbert, as my Harold NL West married a Frances Florence May Herbert in WA in 1914.  I agree that there is likely to be a family connection there.

 Muss, thanks for the info, this is the right HNL West.  I am thinking that I may have to apply for his marriage cert. to get more information.  Apparently the WA marriage certs give quite a lot of information.

There is an Edward West who died in South Aust. in 1926 and I am fairly sure from the family notes that I have that this is the father of HNL West.

Once again you guys are all the best!

Hi Kris
Yes, Edward NL West was Harold's son and was known as "Woodsy".

I have ordered a copy of Eugene Herbert's book about the Herbert family and I am hoping that that might shed some light on on the birth details of Harold.

If that fails, I will order a vopy of his second marriage certificate and hope that gives me what I am looking for.

I am beginning to suspect that he may have been born overseas and just lived in SA.
