Bessant of IOW

milton keynes
hi ,I am trying to help my aunt who is 90,she is seeking info on her father who was Ernest James Bessant born late 1800`s,in Cowes on the Isle of Wight,she feels Cross street,Cowes, rings a bell,also she feels his mother may have been French?but not sure.

Her memory is not too good,but sadly much better than mine I must say redf)I am also an OAP and sorry to say the day I received my OAP buss pass my memory seemed to fly out the window:eek:

She is not sure but thinks he married her mother Esther Jane Milburn around 1918,who lived in Leeds,we dont know how they met,but I feel sure she worked as a canary alongside my Gran,who used to make and pack ammunition and put little notes along side for the brave soldiers in WW1,and I believe thats how she met my Grandfather a WW1 Canadian expeditionary soldier,and as was Ernest Bessant also a WW1 soldier .

Anyway any help no matter how big or small would be so welcome,thank you
