I wonder if anyone can help me track down my great grandfather. Robert James Puttee, I know he was born in 1876, in Peckham and the last document that I have of him on is my grandfather, Robert Cecil Puttee's birth certificate, in 1901, after that I can find no trace of him. The family story, was that he left my grandmother and his two sons and emigrated to America, but I can find nothing to substantiate that. Any help pointing me in the right direction would be lovely. Thanks.

A Public Family Tree states that Robert died in 1908, without any proof ....... seemingly based on the year of Amy's marriage.

It might be worth buying the certificate for Amy's marriage to David Jones to see how she describes her marital status.

EDIT:-

Found the certificate on Ancestry ............. she describes herself as widow. True or not .......... no-one would ask to see proof of that.

Address given for Amy was 11 Batavia Rd, Deptford Lewisham

There is no further information as this sheet if badly burnt. No initial(s) given for this man. The only thing I can see is that he was paid £2-0-0 for something!

I couldn't find a death in 1908, at least not in England and Wales, but nor have I been able to find his name on an outbound passenger list from the UK or on the Ellis Island site.
