Persia now Iran - Agnes Hick age 42 in 1929
« on: Monday 24 May 21 20:54 BST (UK) »
Any suggestions as to why Agnes Hick sailed from Falmouth, Cornwall to Abadan, in then Persia?  To my knowledge there was no family connections there, her parents had died, and both her brothers had also died in 1915 and 1916.  I'd be very grateful for your ideas.

Did Agnes stay in Abadan or travel elsewhere in Persia?
What skills did she have - domestic servant, governess or of private means?

There would have been a British Community in Abadan at the time for the oil industry:

Thank you very much for your replies.  I cannot find an occupation for Agnes.  She belonged to a well off family, I found her as a visitor in the 1911 Census  at 22n Croxteth Grove, Sefton Park, Liverpool. 
Agnes was born in New Ferry, Bebington, Cheshire.

Somebody named Agnes Hick married Richard E Bampton in Baghdad.  The GRO Consular marriages index only gives year ranges, so this marriage took place some time between 1926 and 1930.

Agnes and Richard head out to Durban in 1950, from an address in Leinster Gardens, London. He's 56, and an engineer, she's listed as 61

Do you know her dob - there's a possible Agnes Bampton b March 1889 on the 1939 register
