From on Thu, 2 Feb 2006
my grandmother was Olive May Wirth 1889 #34930 wed 1919 #2314 to Regd Wadham
In answering her letter, I wrote Looking for Wadham arrivals and in Unassisted Immigration Search page, I found
Charles H Wadhan 27 came May 1892 on the Oruba with Mrs Wadham 27, Reg 6, Rose 4 and Kate 2
I first searched using Wadham and dates to 1910
Freebmd for marriage of Charles, used dates 1882 to 1892, and as there are 2 couples per page. Got
Marriages Mar 1885
Dickeson Emma Wandsworth 1d #660
Dickison Emma Wandsworth 1d #660
Glanfield Fanny Jemima Wandsworth 1d #660
Wadham Charles Henry Wandsworth 1d #660
Going for births, found
Births Mar 1864 WADHAM Charles Henry Edward Chapel le S Vol 7b Page 595 (The district Chapel le S has been linked by FreeBMD to Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire.)
From IGI,
Charles Edward Henry Wadham Birth: 21 FEB 1864, Christening: 17 JUL 1865 at Saint Thomas, Stepney, London, England son of Alice Ann and Charles Wadham
Charles Wadham wed 01 MAR 1863 to ALICE ANN LEES at Cathedral, Manchester, Lancashire, England
Checking Victoria Index from 1892 for Wadham family would give any more children registered, plus mother's name, then would know if either Emma or Fanny is mother by deduction of Reg, Rose and Kate.
Do you have marriage certificate of Reg Wadham to Olive?
