Eveline Axten
« on: Monday 18 November 19 04:11 GMT (UK) »
Im trying to locate information on my grandmother.  She was born in 1914 in the USA but migrated to England.  She had a boy in 1941 in Hunstanton, peter, and the moved to Newfoundland with her husband George that same year. 
Any info is greatly appreciated,
Paul

Hello Paul and welcome to Roots Chat  :)

Have you found Eveline on the 1939 Register? I can't post details her due to  copywrite but using a free search there is an Eveline J Axton living in Norfolk who may be worth looking at

You say Eveline was born in USA but there is a posssible baptism on Anc for her at 1 year old  in London at the same time as sister Blanche Margaret Scase Axten

Eveline Jean Axten
Birth 29 Jan 1914
Baptism 7 Mar 1915 St John, Ealing, Ealing
Father:    Victor William Waterfield Axten (a miner)
Mother:    Susan Axten

The image on ancestry has USA written below the name Axten for both Eveline and her sister Blanche.
Although from BMD Blanche was born in England, mothers maiden name Burke.
I could find no entry for Eveline in BMD so likely born in New York.

Victor Axten married Susan Burke 27 June 1913 Brooklyn New York.

Victor was a sailor from his seaman's registration U.K. Royal Navy. born 6 November 1891 signed up in Ealing 1907 and served until 1913 his last ship was to New York. His character very good until the end where it has "run".

The address given on the baptism record of Alacross Road is the same as Victor's parents William Axten born Watford Herts and his wife Sarah Jane born Fransham? Norfolk  on 1901 and 1911 census of Ealing Middlesex.

William Axten married Sarah Jane Scase 1885 registered in Brentford, so that's where Blanche gets her 3rd name from.

Can anyone see what happened to Victor and Susan Axten her parents?

Speculation
Her sister Blanche Margaret born 4 Feb 1915 seems to go by Blanche Margaret Burke 1939 and when she marries 1940 to a Robert J Hammond dies 1990 Eastbourne Sussex
