Thanks a million.

I and another of his descendants are trying to find out what happened to them. We have no record of births of any other children or their deaths. It is possible they went to South Africa?

These dates of birth do not match I would have thought the census was the more reiable but who knows!

yes, there is a discepancy

by KBAnderson on 2013-12-20 09:24:42

i think she was born in 1887 as that would have made her 21 when she married George in 1908

Thank you. Now I am really confused as she was 21 in 1908 when she married George Biddulph Anderson so how can she have married Grimsell the year she was born?

I wonder if this Emmeline Wheatley was her mother?

That would make sense.

1901 Bridge House, Riverside, Reedham Norfolk

George GRIMSELL 1847 Retired Licensed Victualler Ireland Dundalk
Emmeline GRIMSELL 1868 Romford, Essex

Does not look like any children from this marriage.

I would get the marriage cert using this data to establish the birth year for each of thm a nd also get the fathers names and occupations. Sorry can't help more.
