Re possible children of Stella -

there are several Brown / Purcell births after 1940, but none in Yorkshire, so can't tell if any of them are likely to be hers.

It's a pity she didn't marry someone with a more unusual surname.

The 1939 daughter of George may have married Maurice Petyt (that's a more useful surname!) in 1959 in Holderness, Yorkshire.

They may still be alive, or maybe died in just the last few years - I don't see death records online.


If that's the correct marriage, she had a daughter in 1962, born in Holderness.

Re George's possible grandchild born 1962 - she may have married in 1985 in Southampton.

She may then have had two children, both born in Winchester, 1987 and 1992
