Hi DaveHam9, I notice you are in Sydney & I have noticed your posts with Horse pertaining to one C W Theakstone & his first wife Lily Evans. I find he had 3 wives & 2 divorces. I wish to make contact with you about these two people as they became the new parents of my sister born April 1938 & adopted out to them in January 1939. I was born in Sydney 1940 & now live in Townsville, Qld. Hope to hear from you. Regards Paul

I have no current info to make a definite choice. Quite a coincidence that both in post #1 were born in nearby suburbs and both had their marriage registered in Chatswood district.


A copy of the 1935 marriage should have some info to help.

Death 10099/1983 COURT LESLIE - EDWARD LONSDALE - MARGARET ** 10 May


The Sydney Morning Herald - Tuesday 4 September 1951 p.20
DEATHS
EVANS, Julia Maude Mary.-September 3, 1951, at Willoughby, beloved wife of the late George and loved mother of Maude (Mrs. Castray), Rose (Mrs. Taylor), Florrie (Mrs. McKay), Violet (Mrs. Evans), Daisy (Mrs. Harper), Lily (Mrs. Court), George, and Fred.

Chatswood and Willoughby are neighbouring suburbs.

How can it be George born Victoria if the above notice is correct?

Why were we looking for the birth of another Lily? Had we found something to rule out this one?

IF this is the right one ...

NSW Birth 26520/1908 EVANS LILY - THOMAS T - AMELIA A - MARRICKVILLE

... then the death notice for Thomas has " ... father of Thelma (Mrs Taylor) and Tom ..."

... and the death notice for Amelia has " ... mother of Thelma (Deceased) and Tom. ..."

... and the death notice for Thelma has " ... sister of Tom ..."

No mention at all of Lily. It does not solve the problem but could we assume from that?

It's the right birth and Lily was effectively disowned.

It's the right birth but Lily didn't marry William Charles Theakstone and death not found.

Conclusion: Birth for the right Lily still not confirmed.

Hi Geoff, thanks for the tips.
Lily Theatone nee Evans is the one I am looking for. She married NSW BDMs 6460/1935 at Chatswood to Charles W Theakstone. The Divorced 5208/1945 & got Decree nisi January 1950 from Sydney Morning Herald.
Also SMH 7 Nov 1950 They apparently were back in court for custody. I presume for my sister Maureen.
Dave has SMH 8 May 2004 death notice 6 May for Theakstone Lily nee Evans passed away peacefully aged 95 so born abt 1909, much loved mother of Maureen. This Maureen is my sister.

George is not listed in the In Memoriams for 1909. This may be his death:

I can't find the family in 1871 on FS with 81% coverage.

Pob in census should help sort out which birth reg fits for George.
