William Edwin Ernest Newman
« on: Sunday 12 May 19 19:31 BST (UK) »
Can SKS help in directing me, please?
I'm looking for a trace on William Edwin Ernest Newman thought to have been born in Peckham, London in 1902 and died somewhere in or around Sydney in 1957. Little else is known about him

No birth reg with all 3 christian names.  What else do you know about him?  Parents/siblings etc

What document do you have with all 3 christian names?

I know very little. I'm not even sure that he died in Sydney, let alone died there in 1957

I'm certain that the 3 christian names are correct. There were given to me by the Guild of One Named Studies, as they appear on a marriage certificate to Dorothy May Millard in Frome, Somerset in 1922. On that certificate 'gunner 1025197 RAMC' appears which I assume is something to do with the military. Maybe, after or during the war, he was posted out there and remained after the war. Maybe, there is a connection - a distant one

Probable marriage for parents

Edward Ernest Newman to Lily Louisa Higgins  March qtr 1902   Camberwell  1d  1242

The 1922 marriage I mentioned above was to Dorothy M Millard

Although christian names are correct - they appear in a different order on his birth reg

A Dorothy May Millard was born Frome in 1897 so 5yrs older than William
