Hi Kirsty,Walter died oct 1928,aged 51 suicide in the Thames .. Ada was still alive then,but i can't find anything for her??

gxx Kirsty that is Walter Seniors death.

Just had a thought,perhaps she could have gone back to the name of Summerfield just thinking aloud here!!

Good Evening Kirsty,can i try and give my Ggrandmother a bash? lol

She has completely slipped off the radar.after my Ggrandfather deserted her, i know she was alive up untill 1928 as i have Sunday Paper pictures of her in bed!! after that she apparently moved in with an elderly gentleman but i can't find a second marriage or death?she must be out there somewhere..

Ada Mary Brown maiden name Summerfield born 1874 Chipping Sodbury, she apparently stayed in Bath,Somerset..

What are the chances with this one.?

gillxx ( emailed you regarding the other matter!)plus her in bed..just for a giggle,need one at the moment!!

Hi Kirsty, not yet but I must get it ......



Kirsty Report 24 Jun 2009 21:15


Do you have her marriage certificate?
If we had her father's name I would be able to trace her through the cencus and hopefully find her birth that way.



fudge1 Report 24 Jun 2009 21:07

You're right Kirsty..if you don't ask...

My mum missed out on knowing her father,and i missed out on a Grandfather,and all because you worry about upsetting people by asking questions.

Bull by the horns time,..

It might be worth you looking to see if there is any hints on that

i will keep going though

Please please please Kirsty, can you help? I am struggling .... I am trying to locate the birth for a Annie Blanche Denham somewhere between 1880 and 1885 in Lambeth???? In the death list it gives her birth 'about 1882'. Annie died April-June 1969 St. Marylebone. Any ideas?

Best Wishes,
