looking for Evelyn White / Evelyn Northcott - Middlesex
« on: Thursday 13 November 14 06:43 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to complete a family tree for my husband's family.  His father was Howard Gordon Northcott.  His father had 2 brothers - Earl Tessier Northcott (found him) and Doug Northcott (can't find him, but I do know his died in action in WW2).  On Howard's birth certificate it lists father as Horace Earl Northcott & mother as  Evelyn Northcott of 110 Maurice Ave Wood Green.  I cannot find any trace of Evelyn (maiden name White), other than a death record of Eveline Northcott in 1947 age 63, suggesting birth about 1884.  Not sure they were even married, she may have just used his surname.

Is anyone working on a family tree that may provide hints about Evelyn or Eveline White.
.... Ruth

Difficult

Have you found them on 1911?
Look ups arent allowed, but it looks very much as if Dad Horace is living alone.

Im wondering if Evelyn was born/lived/married overseas?

I cant see Doug on CWGC site?

Just looking at 1901 census I see numerous Evelyn(or similar) Whites born around 1884ish
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

Welcome RuthN

Definitely a tricky one!  Horace I see served in the Army and Army Reserve 1892-1904 and was single throughout, so no helpful marriage details there.

His next of kin details include a Wood Green address for his brother James.  By 1909 Horace was at the Maurice Ave address you have from the birth cert. So it looks likely he was settled in Wood Green, or at least had close links there, around the time he got together with Evelyn.

She is elusive, though, isn't she ???

Wow, thanks for a quick reply.  On the 1911 census I can only find Horace - no Evelyn or children

War medals were sent to Doug's next of kin in the name of Sgt D R Northcote.  I believe he was the youngest son, so born after 1908
