I donít see Alma born in Suffolk or elsewhere in England.

Was her mother Pri(s)cilla Maud Whitbread who died in Western Australia in 1972 aged 80?

Did you mean 1885? Frank b 1909 would have turned 5 in 1914?

Also looking for information on Grand ma Alma May Whitbread from Suffolk area with Parents being Henry and Pricilla Whitbread

Could you confirm my understanding that the lineage goes as follows:
Thomas WILSON (born 1880 Yorkshire) married (in Australia) Eliza
(sons Ben, John b1907, Frank b1909)
son Frank WILSON (born 1909) married Alma May DAY (nee WHITBREAD born 1920)
I won't carry the tree forward as Rootschat has a policy of not naming living persons.

I am a little puzzled by the WHITBREAD line.  The only potential marriage I found on FreeBMD is:
Jun qtr 1905 Brentford vol 3a p337 Alfred Henry WHITBREAD on same page as Priscilla STEVENS.
this may tie in with a birth:
Jun qtr 1878 Brentford vol 3a p109 Alfred Henry WHITBREAD mmn LAMBERT.
Brentford is in Middlesex and there is no obvious connection with Suffolk.

Please could you let us know what is the earliest official record you have for the family in Australia?  This will give us a definite date to work back from.

Philip
