Ethel Quin
« on: Monday 21 September 20 16:06 BST (UK) »
I am looking for assistance in tracing story of Ethel Quin. She married Geoffrey Graham Baird in Reading on 18th October 1952 and sailed to South Africa in November 1953 aboard Braemar Castle (? ). Quin was her maiden name and she married Victor Charles Lewis Glenister in May 1947.

Can you clarify what you mean by “tracing the story of Ethel Quin”

Where & when was she born?

Presumably divorced Glenister as he only died 1990.  They had a child born 1947 who appears to have remained in England as there is a marriage in 1965.

Geoffrey G Baird appears to have been b 1929 whereas Victor Glenister was b 1920

You may want to change your subject header.  You are looking for Ethel Baird nee Quin.

I’m researching on behalf of the daughter who was born in 1947 to her and first husband Victor Glenister. Her mum remarried Geoffrey Baird and left in 1953 to go to South Africa. She arrived in Cape Town and she never wrote to her daughter. She is trying to find out if her mum had anymore children while in SA or if she moved on from there or settled.

I see that Geoffrey died in 1994 in Kent.  Would his English probate papers perhaps give more information?

Ethel Quin was born on 19th January 1928. Her address on the land army registration was Salford Manchester. She arrived in Cape Town in 1953. She never wrote to her daughter in the UK.

Good find Nookie.

If Geoffrey Graham Baird died in Kent in 1994 then he must have returned to the UK between 1953-1994

No UK death for Ethel as Baird.

If Ethel was born January 1928 then she was not born in England.  There is only one birth on freebmd in 1928 & that was Quinn and in the September qtr
