Death ????

GRO Reference: 1936 D Quarter in BRENTFORD Volume 03A Page 132


that woman was Winifred Ewles, married to Albert Muller, per her probate record.


ErikaH Report 31 Jan 2024 22:41

No birth on freebmd for a Winifred Carvey with second initial ‘M’

How do you come to be looking for this couple? What else do you know about either of them?


ErikaH Report 31 Jan 2024 22:44

The 1911 parents and Winifred were living in Paddington in 1921, at 24, Barnsdale Road

The Mullers were in Kensington

Franz born c1903 is a Butcher’s Assistant…..undoubtedly anglicised his name when marrying

Birth of Franz Gottfried Y Muller OND 1902


malyon Report 31 Jan 2024 22:52

winifred's middle name was maud and did have a son francis t hank you all for your help


ErikaH Report 31 Jan 2024 22:54

How do you know the middle name?

What records have you found?

Please tell us ALL you know


ErikaH Report 31 Jan 2024 23:00

I suggest that the child was actually living with his father in 1939, and that the birth year for Francis snr. should have been given as 1902, not 1912


ArgyllGran Report 31 Jan 2024 23:11

Yes, I agree.

From her birth cert on Ancestry, the woman's DoB was 26/10/1904

Muller divorced her for desertion 12/06/1952..............decree absolute 02/02/1953. Image of judgement on the website.


ErikaH Report 1 Feb 2024 11:51

She wasn't with her widowed father in 1939


ArgyllGran Report 1 Feb 2024 11:53

Hmmm -
according to that tree, she was the Winifred Carvey, without a middle name, whose birth and 1911 entry I posted yesterday at 21:37


She's still just Winifred in 1921.
Surname mis-spelled Cariey in transcription.


ErikaH Report 1 Feb 2024 12:07

The 'Maud' was probably added by the woman herself for some reason.

As she'd abandoned her husband and child, no knowing what she called herself in 1939, or at any other time.

I've never doubted that she was the one born to Carvey/Chapman combo

Her marriage cert is on the Ancestry tree - father Henry William, occ Carman

She lied even then............gave her age as 21, when she was, in fact, only 18. the marriage was in January
