Trying to find Stewart

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Gill Report 5 Nov 2004 15:53

I'm looking for connections with my husband's maternal grandmother who was a STEWART, but we don't know her first name. She would have been born around the late 1890s, we estimate. She apparently came from the west of Scotland but married and settled in Southampton. She died early, when my late mother-in-law was very young. My mother-in-law's Christian names were Winifred Grace Maud, at least one of these being after her mother. Young Miss Stewart's husband, WALTER HORN, was probably born in the late 1880s. Walter Horn was a sailor for much of his life, first on sailing ships and then on steam. His married years were spent in Southampton, but we don't know where he came from originally - Hampshire, we think, posssibly the New Forest area (Horn is a common name in Hampshire). He and his wife had several sons, and just the one daughter. Does any of this ring any bells with anyone?
