Beatrice Simmonds, Brynteg
« on: Saturday 14 April 18 20:16 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I had an aunt called Beattie (or Beatrice) Simmonds who was possibly born at around 1920ish at Clifton House, New Road, Brynteg Wrexham.

She was the daughter of James and Maria Simmonds and had 7/8 siblings.

She moved at some stage to somewhere in the London area and died in the last few years as Beattie Plummer.

Does anyone rcognise her from this description?

Many thanks,

John

Hi Groom,

That was quick!

It certainly looks like it could be her. I would need to check on the date of her parents marriage.

I think her mother Maria Matthias was from Broughton and her father James form Birmingham?

Thanks,

John

That's the correct family, as cross checking William James Simmond's birth from the GRO site gives this:

SIMMONDS, WILLIAM  JAMES  mmn   MATTHIAS     
1907  S Quarter
WREXHAM 
Volume 11B  Page 254

There's a very strange marriage transcription on Freebmd and Find My Past:

BEATRICE SIMMONDS
Marriage quarter   1
Marriage year   1963
Spouse Julie A Plummer  ??

Colchester  Essex
Volume   4A
Page number   1423

I doubt very much if that can be right given the date!

There is a death of a Jules Alfred Plummer(1916-1999) in Colchester.Perhaps Julie is a misprint for Jules.

That must be it Roger! Thanks. Jules Alfred Plummer died 22 August 1999. (from Gov. Find a Will site) He doesn't appear to have left a will as it says "Grant only"
