Am trying to find the aunt and uncle of Carlota Da Conceicao 1918-2005  She came from Portugal to live in England when she was 12 after her mother had died.  Ship arrived in Southampton 15th August 1930  The proposed address was 38 Oxford Tce (I'm assuming this is Terrace?) London.W. - possibly Hammersmith, as this is where she spent a good deal of her years here. Thanks

Sorry, have reread this and should have made it clear that she came to live with her Aunt and Uncle in England who, either or, or both came from Portugal

Henry T Midwinter appears on a travel schedule in 1927 and the address he gives is 38 Oxford Terrace, Hyde Park.

Maria Midwinter who appears with him on the 1939 register dies in 1944.

I cannot find any marriage for Henry to a Maria but he may have married her abroad.

There is a marriage for Henry in 1950, if this is the same one:-

Marriages Jun 1950

Midwinter    Henry T    Scott-Forbes    Hammersmith    5c   1511    
Scott-forbes    Dorothy M    Midwinter    Hammersmith    5c   1511

England: Devon, London, New Zealand

Knowling: Devon, London
Southcott: Devon, China
Strong: Wiltshire
Watson: Cambridgeshire

So already married by 1927.  I am assuming that Henry married Maria in Portugal as there is no trace of one in the UK.
