Charles Thomas WALKER born c1878 lived in South Australia
« on: Friday 28 February 20 09:27 GMT (UK) »
Iím trying to trace details of this man that married Beatrice May THOMAS (widow, nee GULLY) in 1918. 275/109 Adelaide. I know that he is NOT related to the candle/soap making WALKER family as that man of the same name died in Qld around 1898.   
Charles and Beatriceís daughter was born in 1920 and he had left the family (which included 5 children from Beatriceís first marriage) the following year. Source SA Police Gazette 23 Nov 1921 gives age 43 therefore born c1878.

There are no electoral rolls that I can find, no death, birth place, YOB, parents all unknown.

Is there any way that more information can be found without the need to purchase the marriage certificate?

This might be a dead duck, but a C T Walker, civil engineer arrives in 1910 from Colombo on the China:

Very interesting, thank you. I will do some searching in English records to see if itís possibly the same man. He was described as a labourer when Beatrice was claiming maintenance but thatís always possible if he couldnít find employment in his field.

There are two shipping records for that C T Thomas, one in 1913 with wife and children, the other in 1930 so it seems unlikely to be the same man.

I also found another with same initials leaving Victoria heading for London Jan 1908. Unfortunately needing yet another subs to view what should be public records IMO.

Thank you Jamjar but that is the family I have already discounted in post #1 with that particular Charles Thomas dying in QLD in 1898.

There is a death notice for Beatrice May WALKER (formerly THOMAS)

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/43497266

It names her children. In my experience, on these occasions children are usually named in birth order, (there are exceptions to most things ;D) but I do not see a daughter as you mention, listed as the sixth child. There may be all sorts of reasons for this. But...

I do see a male as number six.

There is tree online at Ancestry  without much documentation which lists a man of the right (or nearly right )name as the son of Beatrice May GULLY and Charles Thomas WALKER. The name DAVIS has been inserted to read father Charles Thomas DAVIS-WALKER. The child is also named ***** Davis WALKER.

The tree says he was born in 1922 and a marriage is also listed for him.
It also says he died around 1997.

Does any of this make sense to you?

I mention it because the birth seems to post date the SA Police Gazette notice placed in 1921.
