Looking for info on a Kenworthy who married a Marjorie Cecil Chaplin in 1925. They had a Daughter Carol, and later divorced around1934. He was a Test Pilot. Carol later married a GI and went to America to live. Carol was my half sister. Thanks. Now I discover Carol went to America in 1946, married by now.

Reginald W Kenworthy married Marjorie Chaplin in 1925

1911 census, there is a Reginald Watson Kenworthy, aged 19, living as boarder at an address in Lincoln. He was born in Wakefield, Yorkshire, and his occupation is given as Farm Pupil, the Head of Household being a Farmer and Cattle Dealer.

BMD has his birth as 1891

If this is the correct Kenworthy, he would have been 34 at his marriage, which took place in Leominster, Herefordshire..

He died in Surrey, aged 76, in 1968.

Also, there is a marriage for 1944, Paddington, London to Ruth D G Davies - second marriage after divorce from Marjorie?

Address in 1948 - 75 Wimbledon Hill Rd, London SW 19

1949 - ditto
1950 - ditto

1952 - 76 Wimbledon Hill Rd., Wimbledon, London SW 19 ( suspect a misprint in house no. )

1955 - 75 Wimbledon Hill Rd.
1956 - ditto
1957 - address given as " Afracs " - exchange 81 Wimbledon Hill Rd.
1959 - ditto

AFRACS I believe may be an abbreviation of an Air Force related residence, something along the lines of Retirement and Convalescence.

I know it's been over 5 years since your post, but hope this helps :)
