Tale of One Man, Two Sisters and Two Londons
My great-great-grandfather was Joseph Lambert.
This is a rather bizarre story with an unusual situation involving two of Joseph’s daughters and one man – Edward Lewis SMITH.
Louisa Lambert (born 1858 London, England) married Edward Lewis Smith (born 1860 Hackney, London, England)in 1883 Hackney, London. They then moved to East London, South Africa where Louisa died in 1921 (aged 62/63). There is a rather sad entry on the Death Certificate of Louisa: "No surviving children. Six children born of the marriage all of whom died in infancy".
Edward returns to London marries Louisa's younger sister Henrietta (born 1864 London, England) in 1923 West Ham, London, England and then returns to East London.
Edward Lewis Smith died in 1935 (aged 74/75) and Henrietta died in 1945 (aged 80/81), both in East London.
