Halls from Middlesbrough living in Western Australia

Journal by Keeef

My Great Uncle, Edward Hall and his wife Daisy Victoria Lambert emigrated to Albany Western Australia in 1926 from Middlesbrough, England. They sailed on the SS Pakeha from Liverpool and were accompanied by their children Ernest William and Gwendoline, my 2nd cousins. Subsequently Ernest married Ray Alice May Morrell and Gwendoline married Geoffrey Allan Angove. I believe they are all deceased but wonder whether they had any children bearing the Hall or Angove names.

hi Keeef, welcome to FamilyTreeCircles

A Geoffrey Allen Angove was born in Albany on 10 Nov 1911. A name too coincidental to ignore, especially given he was born in Albany.
I am thinking he was probably the husband of Gwendoline Hall. If so, it was after he returned from war in 1941

Geoffrey enlisted for WWII with the Australian Army on 10 Nov 1939 and served as Lance Corporal WX710. His next of kin was a Clara Angove.

16 June 1941 - BACK IN ALBANY
Geoff Angove, Albany's first casualty in the present war, and prominent member of local sporting circles, arrived back in his home town yesterday afternoon.
Geoff, who was wounded in action at Bardia, has been back in the West for some time, but has been in hospital in the city.
He appears well and happy considering his trying ordeal.
L/Cpl. Geoff Angove is the youngest son of Mrs Angove, of Vancouver Street, Albany. His father, the late Mr John Angove, was for many years secretary of the Albany Road Board, and had a long sporting association locally.

25 Aug 1941
Twenty-one West Australian soldiers have received decorations and "mentioned in despatches" for their part in the campaign in the Western Desert. The awards cover the period of the campaign in Libya from the capture of Sidi Barrani to the fall of Benghazi. Among those "mentioned in despatches" is L/Cp. G. A. Angove, who is now home in Albany. He was wounded at Bardia.

Geoffrey died 19 Feb 1997 aged 85. He had been living in Claremont. He is memorialised at Karrakatta

Clara Walker married John Edward Angove (1865-1939) in 1889. She died in 1944 aged 78. They are buried in Albany

2 August 1943
St. George's Cathedral, Perth, was the scene of a very pretty wedding on July 10th, the contracting parties being Mr. G. A. Angove and Miss Gwendoline Hall, both formerly of Albany. The bride entered the church on the arm of her father, looking very charming in a heavy white crepe satin back dress with long sleeves finished at the waist with six tiny buttons of the same material; the shoulders trimmed with lattice work of same material and a broad waist band in pin tucks, and a beautiful hand-worked veil held in place by a great heart-shaped halo and orange blossom.
The bride carried a sheaf of dark red carnations and fern to complete her toilet. Miss A. Foster, a close friend of the bride, was bridesmaid. She, looked very nice in an ankle length dress of white sharkskin, the bodice and sleeves being in white georgette and finished in tiny pintucks. She wore a shoulder length veil, which was also held in place with a heart-shaped halo, and carried a sheaf of carnations and fern. Miss Dorothy Gale, cousin of the bride, acted as flower girl, and looked nice in an ankle-length dress, very full, of white taffeta, bodice brought to the waist V-shape with frills of same material trimmed round the skirt, tiny pink roses on the bodice with sprays here and there; the halo also heart shape trimmed with little pink flowers, and she carried a posy of pink carnations and fern.
The groomsman was Mr. E. Hall, brother of the bride.
The reception' was at Reno's, where 43 guests were received by the bridegroom's mother, wearing a black dress with coat to match, and carrying a posy of violets. Mrs. T. Gale was also present, in a blue wool suiting costume, hat and bag to match. Lieut-Col Anderson carried out the duties of master of ceremonies.
The usual toasts were honoured and numerous telegrams were read; also many cheques and presents were received.

After the reception the happy couple left for a week's honeymoon at Bickley, the bride travelling in a blue wool suiting costume, with black pan velvet hat, bag and shoes to match. Their home will be at 52 Colin-street, Perth.
