Looking for my Grandmother Ellen Agnes Smith born 23 Feb 1895 Lewisham, London

Ellen married my grandfather Henry Joseph Lambert in Nov 1919 Islington, London, UK.

Her father is listed in the marriages as James Smith, drayman, deceased.

My father Henry William Ernest Lambert, I believe was their only child.

My sister and I are the only children of our father, and probably the only grandchildren of Ellen. Unfortunately we left the UK as young children and had no contact with our father who died 22 April 1972. My grandmother passed away in 1976.

This is my second attempt on Family Tree Circles (Ellen Agnes Smith)to see if I can get any information on Ellen's siblings and parents. I would like to make contact with my Smith and Lambert relations.

Please help me find my grandmother's family. Thank you.

Looking for verified information on Ann(a) Clara SIMONS (b. circa 1847) wife of Jeremiah Crowell NORTON

I am looking for verified information (birth place, year of birth) on ANN (ANNA) CLARA SIMONS.

In documents, she has been variously referred to as Ann, Ann Clara, Anna, Anna Clara and just Clara.

LDS and others have her parents as Walter Simons and Catherine Wiffen (married early 1842 in Chelmsford, Essex, England - BMD UK Chelmsford Mar 1842 #51);

There is no UK or NZ BMD birth for ANN(A) SIMONS (on any variation) that would match info given. Some sources I have seen give 1842 and others 1847. Her death certificate gives it practically as 1847. LDS give it as 1842.

She married Jeremiah Crowell NORTON (born 6 June 1819 Martha's Vineyard, Dukes County, Massachusetts, USA; died 31st Aug 1897 Northland, NZ) on 5 July 1862 Auckland, NZ (NZ BMD 1862/4505).

It is interesting to note that she married as Clara Simons and he as Jeremiah Carvell Norton (widower).

After Jeremiah Crowell NORTON died in 1897; she married Joseph TIMPERLEY(her son's father-in-law) in 1899. This time she calls herself Ann Clara (NZ BMD 1899/3021).

She died 5th May 1914; Again she is noted as Ann Clara (NZ BMD 1914/2768).

I wonder what her real first names were?

Any verified info on her would be appreciated.

Please be positive as all comments made are helpful.
