WINTER family Bristol

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Anne Report 25 Feb 2013 04:38

Am researching for a friend in Australia searching for any members of the WINTER family from Bristol. Judy's parents were Ernest BURKE and Doris nee WINTER who left the UK in 1952 and she would love to find any relatives or get any info on this family. Doris had half siblings Royston b. 1939 and Audrey b 1944. Royston possibly married Ailsa BARNES in 1953, one possible child Michael b. 1955. Siblings of Doris include Lillian b 1914 Bristol, Walter b 1916 Bristol, and Frederick b 1926 Bristol. Walter possibly married Marie GROOM in 1939 with child Carol b 1947, and Frederick possibly married Violet MORRIS with children Michael b1947, David b 1950 and Helen b 1951. Lots of 'possibles' I know but it's all I could gleam from web searches - Judy knows nothing! Thanks all! :-S

Marriages Mar 1939 (>99%)
Burke Ernest B Winter Bristol 6a 120
Winter Doris E Burke Bristol 6a 120

A boy born in 1939 could not possibly have married in 1953.

The Royston H Winter who married Barnes was born in 1930
