I'm looking for the daughters of Kenneth Duncan who went to live in South Wales in the 1950's. Kenneths parents were Rosa and Thomas Duncan who lived in Plymouth. Not much to go on but maybe someone can help.

There is Kenneth L marrying in Plymouth 1940, is this him?? Also a Thomas P marrying in 1946 (poss brother??)

There is also a daughter for Kenneth in 1944.

Hi Brummiejan & trailertrash, thanks for replying. Kenneth marrying in 1940 is possibly him, I will look it up. His father Thomas lived in Plymouth until he died in 1959. It was Kenneths dad getting married again in 1946. I found an old letter dated 1954 saying kenneth his wife and 2 daughters went to live in Cardiff. It's the daughters I'm trying to trace. This is a bit garbelled so hope it makes sense. Regards Rosemary

thanks to trailertrash think one daughter is jacqueline. Can't find the other daughter although she must have been born prior to 1954. Does anyone out there know of Jacquelines whereabouts?

There does not seem to be any other children born in the Plymouth area or Wales Unless they lived somewhere else aswell?

There are no trees with her in but found this one??

Jackie Duncan 1944 Colwyn Bay No Gary

Gary has an old membership number but might be worth sending him a message...maybe they moved to Colwyn Bay?

Hi jax, had a quick look but don't think it's her as the jacqueline i'm looking for was born in Plymouth and moved to Cardiff when she was about 10 yrs old.

Not been able to find another child either. Nothing found on Jacqueline in Cardiff. She probably married elsewhere.....

People put strange things in their trees.

I found myself on my husbands tree with my name shortened and born where he knew I grew up....strange thing was we were both born in the same hospital so you would think he would have remembered that!!

It was the nearest I could find for her and I could not find a birth in Wales to match that one

Hi Rose, don't think that's my mums cousin as I don't think he was born a DUNCAN but my great uncle married his mother and he took the Duncan name. I think he was born in Birkenhead about 1912.

Hi jax, thanks for that info. I suppose she may have said she was born in wales as she may have spent most of her time there. Will try to contact the tree holder and see what happens. Many thanks

Hi Rose, Yes the're the right people, I think Kenneth was born a POTTER. perhaps she was a widow when she married Thomas Duncan. My Mum always thought that her uncle adopted Kenneth but in those days they didn't really discuss things in front of the children so my mum only picked up snippets of info. Regards Rosemary

If we can figure out when Kenneth was born we can try and locate a death and see where he was living.

Did Thomas and Rosamond have children? I'm trying to figure out her maiden name?

Rose

Is this him ??? Kenneth L Potter 1924 Plymouth, mothers maiden name Stagg??

Rosemary48 Report 27 May 2012 20:55

Hi Rose, Kenneth was the only child. If I've got the right people he married Winifred Edwards in 1940 and had Jacqueline in 1944. When Kenneths father Thomas wrote to a cousin he mentions 2 girls but I can only find Jacqueline. She would be 68 now, if still alive. I really can't work out Kenneths birth surname but he got married as a Duncan so his death would be Duncan. It's really frustrating not being able to tie it all together. He could have left Cardiff at any time in the last 50 years so could have died anywhere. Regards, Rosemary

Trailertrash,

The marriage was in 1913, so e had to be born before then.
