Looking for Maisie Francis
« on: Tuesday 03 November 20 04:07 GMT (UK) »
Hello,
I'm looking for any English record for the following family:

Maisie Francis b. 13/6/1919 England d. 1990 Australia
Father - Harry Francis (Labourer)
Mother - Rose ?

Limited information! Apparently the Francis family travelled to Melbourne, Australia and Maisie was adopted around 1921 to a new family. Harry and Rose are believed to have returned to England. Maisie Francis grew up in Australia, got married and raised a new family. No birth certificate. Passport, marriage and death certificate all say born in England. Any suggestions greatly appreciated as initial searches are not conclusive!
In Scotland:-
McCulloch, Saunders, Sanders, Sanderson, Saunderson, Anderson, Ward, Graham
In England:-
Lovell, Ward, Didmon, Harman

Hello,
The marriage record in Australia lists the following:

Names: Clifford Henry Bodsworth & Maisie Francis
Condition: Bachelor and Spinster
Children: None
Birthplace: Victoria & England
Age: 20 and 20
Address: Melbourne and Melbourne
Father: William Thomas Bodsworth (Station Master) & Harry Francis (Labourer)
Mother: Matilida May White & Rose (maiden name not known)

The birthdate is on the marriage certificate and death certificate and passport. However, it is unclear of the source of that information.

Only 1 possible birth reg in the right time frame.

 
Births Jun 1919
Francis Maisie R, mothers maiden name Lowe** Woolwich 1d 1540

This is if she was actually named Maisie and not just a nick name.

Also the above may have Parents as Charles T Francis and Florence H Lowe , married 1918 (FreeBMD)

So not much help sorry.

Thanks Trish. I did come across that one but ruled it out. Hoping to get the motherís maiden name which will help especially since Maisie is a diminutive of Margaret - and that gives a lot more possibles to narrow down.
