War records very helpful. Not seen them before. A cousin told me that he had been married previous to Julia. But like every thing I have to prove this.

It is like a maze trundling through all the family history, but it is very important to me.

Cheers for now and many thanks


Gaile,   Did you get the email I resent with info on Olive?

I have some info for you on Ernests first marriage so will send it by email instead of posting here


Gaile,  Ernests marriage to Julia May HEROLD - this was her previous married name

Her maiden name was BOWDITCH


I have sent you an email with further information about his first wife - hope you got it (if not check your spam box) or double check the email address you gave me above is correct - you should have received two emails - one about Olive and one about Ernest



Olive's father George came to Australia without his family around 1913.  He enlisted in NSW in 1915 and represented himself as a single man, naming his sister in England as his next of kin.  Who knows what he was up to, perhaps he didn't want his wife to know he had enlisted.  His 75 page record is here and includes a letter from his wife and other family details:


George was discharged in England and the whole family came to Australia in 1920 on the ship "Ceramic".  The passenger list into WA only lists the ex AIF soldiers and their spouses, but this news article confirms that the six children were also onboard.


(near the bottom of the highlighted column)

George also enlisted for home service in WW2 (photos included):


All of George's sons, Ernest Richard, Frederick Thomas, and Charles Victor enlisted in WW2.  Sadly you will see from correspondence in the service records that all the men's medals were lost in a fire.



hI AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP. Could you possibly find out anything on Winifred Maud Lintott born 1910 in godstone Surrey. England. May have moved to Croyden in later years

Would very much like to find more info on Winifred Maud Lintott. Born 1910 in Godstone Surrey England. She may have moved to Croyden in later years.  So hoping someone can help me with this. Many thanks


Winifred was the daughter of James LINTOTT and Julia WHITE.  As the deaths of both her parents were registered in the Ashford district in Kent this may be Winifred's marriage and death:

Marriages, September Quarter 1933

GILL,  Herbert S

LINTOTT,  Winifred M

Romney Marsh, Kent

Vol. 2a Page. 3847

Deaths, December Quarter 1971

GILL, Winifred Maud

Ashford, Kent

Vol. 5f   Page. 18

Born 6 March 1910


Winifred Maud had a twin sister Olive Mary

born feb.1910 both baptized in the April

According to the 1911 census, Winifred was the daughter of James and Julia, however I do see that Winifred and Olive have consecutive birth registration numbers but that could just mean they were registered at the same time.  Olive is the only child baptised with George and Evelyn as parents.  The birth cert would confirm if they were twins, but if Winifred was born in March and Olive in February?  So do you think that George and Evelyn gave one of the girls to George's brother James?

I'm thinking if they were twins as is suggested then it is probable they did give Winifred Maud to Georges brother, Am going to apply for birth certificate and see if that sheds any light on this mystery.
