Gordon, are you saying that she travelled with him, or don't you know?
If you know his 2nd wife's name, have you tried looking for her family?

If I am correct, Jacqueline's mother had an unusual name - possibly she was born Wolverhampton and had 3 brothers?

Have sent PM with details of possible marriage for Jaqueline's parents, and if correct probable birth/siblings for her mother.
You could also check other members' trees to see if anyone shares the family - use 'search all trees' in search box above.

Could be she married in 1953 and Patricia took her stepfather's surname. Unfortunately, it's a common name.

Possibly Evelyn died in 2001.

Someone called Graham has Jacqueline in his tree on this site. Have you made contact?
