Ivor and Evelyn left on 5 June 1951 for New York from Southampton on the De Grasse . He was a civil servant, address in Sanderstead, Surrey. The inbound record on the Ellis Island site gives an onward address in Orlando, Florida

Ivor George Watkins is on the England & Wales death index as having died in Surrey South-eastern.  The Social Security death index indicates that his last residence was in England and his Social Security number was issued in Pennsylvania in 1951-1952.

Hi, I was intrigued by your enquiry about Hilda Mary, as I have been looking into the history of her father Jabez Thomas Watkins. He was the brother of my grandmother's stepmother (Margaret Ann Evans - nee Watkins). She kept her own history very secret and as with many modern families there are many gaps in our history. Nothing is known of her family history as I don't think they were ever included in the family she married into (Evans). She eventually settled in London, as did her children and died there. Jabez appears to have had a very successful career in The Post Office and he also eventually moved to London from Cardiff and died there. If you are a Watkins, perhaps you can help me to expand our history, as we know practically nothing about them. I look forward to hearing from you, Best wishes.
