    Burgess - Wilde family history

    Hi Elaine, I have confirmation that Denis' B is Brown, so I would presume Sylvia's is the same.

    Burgess - Wilde family history

    So that was 10 years after dad was born. Violet may have lived there. She would have been 23-24yo. My dad didnt have a middle name. I will see if I can find out about the other two. Lyn

    Hi Elaine, Had William passed away before then? The 16/2 may be quite interesting.

    Burgess - Wilde family history

    I imagine it would be different. We love Hervey Bay. Very humid this summer though. I am traveling down to SA at present, where I originally came from. Hopefully I will get a good look at dads birth certificate while I'm there! Cheers Lyn

    Burgess - Wilde family history

    This certainly works with our names and alternate birth date. I dont know anything aabout towns in Massachusetts, but my cousin (James' grand daughter) lives in New Bedford. Thats another tick. On a completely different note, gibbo I just noticed that you live in Bundy. I live in Hervey Bay...

    Burgess - Wilde family history

    Hi all, I have messaged my cousin in US to see if I can put any light on which James is which. Also, I am travelling, which in Australia means we dont get internet. Thanks again for your continued effort. Much appreciated. Cheers Lyn

    Burgess - Wilde family history

    Hi Elaine, I'm not up with the acronyms. Very confusing! Everything else seems to suggest that James was born in a different year, but there is Harold. He is a confirmed brother's name. Also, the Ashton under Lyne is where Sarah came back to.

    Hi Elaine Sorry I dont have any idea about immigration, only what I found on the census. I wonder if any others immigrated?

    Burgess - Wilde family history

    Hi Elaine, Many thanks for your information. I rang mum today and she said that James is named as Kenneth's father on his birth certificate. I do know that Sarah lived with an Arthur Brown; he is not listed as a father to any of Sarah's children. I believe all of Sarah's children have James...

    Burgess - Wilde family history

    Hi Steve - I do think this is the James I am looking for; however I was looking through this post and remembered that my cousin had told me one of James' brothers names was Harold. It doesn't appear on this census. I suppose he could have been younger (not born); older and already left home, or...

    Burgess - Wilde family history

    Hi, Thankyou I will have to clarify, but I am pretty sure my dads bith certificate has James name on it. Sorry for my ignorance, but what does FMP stand for? I would say that is Sarahs death. Thankyou for your help. Cheers Lyn

    Burgess - Wilde family history

    Again, this looks like them. A little confused with parents names. James'fathers name William ( could be william Harold or Harold William) mother Mary Jane Wilde. Sarah was a Wilde, so I wonder if in fact James and Sarah were related before marriage. Maybe cousins? The plot thickens! I will see...

    Burgess - Wilde family history

    Hi Dave It certainly looks like Sarah. I wouldnt think there would be many people with the same three names born in 1895. James Henry could well be right. I am still very green at this, but seem to muddle through. Can you tell me exactly where you search find these names-site? Thanks again...
