Walter Wallace Pow married Violetta Parker and emigrated to Perth W.A.
« on: Wednesday 08 July 20 15:26 BST (UK) »
I am seeking any information about Walter Wallace Pow who married Violetta Parker 1 May 1894 in Shepton Mallet Somerset and emigrated in 1906 to Perth in Western Australia.

They had 6 children born between 1896 and 1912; the last 2 born in Perth W.A.
1)   Florence Hilda May Pow was born 1908 and died 2000 in Perth. (No marriage found to date).
2)   Charles Henry Arthur Pow was born 1912 and died 27 July 1989 in Perth W.A. (No marriage found to date).

The other 4 children were all born in England and emigrated to Australia.

Rosalind Augustine Pow born 1898 in Walcot Bath emigrated 1907 and married Alexander Hall 4 Sept 1924, she died in Jan 1982 (on the 19th ?) Burial 21 Jan 1982 at Fawkner Cemetery, Fawkner, Victoria.

Walter Wallace Benjamin Pow married 1) Zoe Elvira Hodder in 1925 and divorced her in 1942, then he married Hilda May Elizabeth Harris in 1943 – dates not known.
He died 18 Jul 1985 in Perth and was buried or cremated in the Karrakatta Cemetery. (20th July 1985?)

Can anyone fill in a few missing gaps and the marriage dates for me?

Baptized John Abraham Pow son of Thomas Pow - Butcher and Eliza address Redstock Somerset

1851 Eliza Pow 54 born Midsommer Norton  Deaf
John 21  son born Radstock   -Tailor journeyman
Kate 5 months grand daughter

Cannot find Thomas and Eliza 1841 with son John.

There is a James Pow who married Eliza Butler 25 March 1821 with a large family at Chestnut Tree Farm maybe a relative.
