Thank you all for this valuable information.  It means a lot,  as Carlota was my partner's Great Aunt and we knew very little about her background in Portugal.  I only met her a few times quite late on in her life but she was a dear lady, a talented seamstress and had many amusing stories to tell!   It would be lovely if I could find out more about her and her family  Thank you again

PS if anybody can locate the arrival in Lisbon for the voyage 17th July 1911 Liverpool to Manaus, Brazil on Vessel Lanfranc as it could assist in seeing if he was married, as a Mrs Midwinter with him?

PPS Henry T made one further voyage to Lisbon 1954 aged 70 on Vessel Hildebrand address in UK 34, Aldbourne Road W12 just down the road from the 1939 address.

There is an earlier voyage departing from Liverpool on 15 July 1909 to Lisbon for a Mr & Mrs Midwinter (no first names/initials, ages or occupations) on the vessel "Antony".  The transcription only lists Mr Midwinter but the original image shows Mr & Mrs Midwinter.

Thanks for more information re Midwinter's travel to and from England to Portugal  I'm still looking for the marriage between Henry Midwinter and Maria??  There is a record showing Henry Trevor and Maria arriving at Southampton, 26th April 1926.  This is the first time I've seen her name as Maria Da Luz Midwinter  I've read that it is the custom in Brazil to take the surname from the father and the mother  Where do I go from here?   ::)

There is another record of Maria Da Luz Midwinter arriving from Lisbon at Southampton on the Oriana on 25 Feb 1927.  Her age is given as 48 (b. abt. 1879), no occupation.  Proposed address in UK: Strand Palace Hotel, London.  No sign of Henry or any other obvious family members.

I appreciate all of these travel records aren't finding the marriage, but sometimes if we keep digging a clue will pop up  :)
