Lily brown (Markwell)
« on: Wednesday 31 July 19 00:02 BST (UK) »
Hi I'm trying to find out about my great nanna lily brown (maiden name).  She married walter Markwell and had 2 children also called Walter and lily. Lily died quite young about 1922_24 and left the children with her husband. He didn't want them so brought up by a auntie
Any information about lily would be great . Her birth place ? Her parents names did she have brothers sisters were did they marry etc
This is in the uk . Possibly stowmarket or Ipswich . Walter later went on to have more children and marrying a florence parsons

I think you'll find that Lily Brown was born 1896 Ipswich to Nathan Brown and Elizabeth Farrow (married 1887).

However, the only way to be sure is to get a copy of her marriage certificate to confirm her fathers name.

If this is the corect family, you can see them in 1901 at Ipswich:

Nathan Brown     38     Aldringham, Suffolk (iron moulder)
Elizabeth Brown  34     Ipswich
Ernest N Brown   12     Ipswich
Charles Brown     10    Ipswich
William Brown        7    Ipswich
Lily Brown            5      Ipswich
Percy Brown        5      Ipswich
Doris Brown         3     Ipswich
Bertie Brown       1       Ipswich

You can search for the children's births on the GRO website with surname BROWN and mother's maiden name FARROW.

(free to search, but you need to register)

This is likely Walter MARKWELL -
Walter Allen MARKWELL birth reg Sep qtr 1896 Ipswich (4a/875) mmn PAGE

[Walter Allen MARKWELL married Thurza PAGE Sept qtr 1894 Ipswich (4a/1418)]

In the 1901 census at Ipswich
Walter A Markwell     28   Bramford, Suffolk (corn merchant's labourer)
Thurza Markwell       25   Ipswich
Walter A Markwell       4   Ipswich
Violet Markwell           2    Ipswich
Stanley Markwell        1     Ipswich

Walter married Florence E PARSONS Jun qtr 1927 Ipswich (4a/2493)

Did he remarry again in 1945? To Rosina M WOLTON  Sept qtr 1945 Ipswich (4a/3833)

But again, you need to check Lily and Walter's marriage certificate to confirm their fathers' names.  :)

I wonder if any of lily's family are still alive . Or if they went on to have family themselves.
My grandad never spoke about his childhood or the time he spent has a desert rat during ww2
