Mrs C Vickery 1937 Completed
« on: Thursday 04 March 21 16:39 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to locate the whereabouts of Charlotte Alice wife of John Vickery who 'disappears' in the UK between 1934 and 1937.  She was born 13/5/1907 in Naburn, Yorkshire and her parents were Harry Nelson and Alice Brigham.

I have found a Mrs C Vickery who sailed from The Port of London 6/11/1937 arriving 10/12/1937 Melbourne on board The Orford. 

Suggestions please on how to find out what became of this lady in Australia.  Did she marry, have children, where and when did she die etc?  Was she Charlotte Alice??

Many thanks

Hi

John Vickery was in the army and the children were in orphanages, all in the UK.

There were no others surnamed VICKERY on the voyage.
Her intended address was 19 Power Street, Hawthorn.  A suburb of Melbourne.
She arrived 7th Dec. 1937

I would suggest Mrs C VICKERY was related in some way to this VICKERY family

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/244773516

Marriage notice between a family WALLES WALLACE ( of 19 Power Street) and a family VICKERY.
1935.

ADDING. You can google the address and see a  street . of a substantial building, probably not much changed from earlier days.

So Miss CLARE WALLACE became Mrs C VICKERY and the voyage upon which you have spotted her, is likely  her return voyaging to Melbourne from a visit to London with her artist husband , John VICKERY.

Probably not your person

A tree on Ancestry has this entry

Quote
She married John Harry James Vickery in December 1927 in Coventry, Warwickshire. They had two children during their marriage. She died in 1957 at the age of 50.

No 1957 death ???

Amazing finds, thank you Sparrett and Matthewj64, terrific work and yes, definitely not Charlotte Alice.  Back to the drawing board.

Thanks for taking an interest CaroleW.  CA didn't die in 1957 - if only it were that easy!
