I recently found out that my grandfather Edward William Ernest Stenning, born 1900 in Camberwell and died in 1975 was married to another woman before he met my nan. From what myself and others have found out he never divorced his wife. He never married my nan either.
Edwards wife was called Winifred Cicily Feeney b 1897/d1988. They had 4 children, John E Stenningb 1926 in Edmonton, Middlesex, Jean M Stenning, b 1928 in West Ham, Lucy C Stenning, b 1931 in West Ham and Josephine A Stenning born in 1937 in Essex, South Western.

I would dearly like to get in contact with these people or their other living relatives.

No marriage or death on Ancestry for Josephine........so, may be living, and should not, therefore, be in your GR tree, as you can't have obtained the necessary permission from the lady

Possible death of John E's wife from 1950 marriage:
Queenie Joseph Stenning
Birth Date: 3 Apr 1926
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1977
Age at Death: 50
Registration district: Kingsclere & Whitchurch
Inferred County: Hampshire
Volume: 20
Page: 0270

Marriages Mar 1950
Morton Queenie J Stenning Essex S.W. 5a 516
Stenning John E Morton Essex S.W. 5a 516

(Cannot see any children from that marriage on ancestry)

If this is his marriage and her death, there is another marriage for John E Stenning in 1982 in Kingsclere.

Josephine was showing on 192.com in 2002, but not thereafter, living in Chigwell.

patchem

patchem Report 6 Nov 2011 09:31

Just an update as to progress.

I have e-mailed the contact for Kingsclere family history society in hampshire as the family definitely seemed to have settled there for a while.

John E Stenning seems to have married twice with the first wife Queenie Joseph dying in 1977 and him then marrying Gwyneth Hallam in 1982.John died in 1998 while she died in 2000, I think.

Trying to sort out the marriages for Jean M Stenning b1928 and Josephine.

Am struggling for both of these.

Am happy to do the research myself but am struggling. Any suggestions.

First suggestion:
Have you got all the birth, marriage and death certificates so that you are sure you have found the correct people, and may get further information from the certificates such as names of witnesses and informants.
