Edith Margaret Martin 1886-1936


Active member
I am trying to find ancestors (including parents and possible siblings) of Edith,my paternal grandmother.

Marriage and death certificates give her as born 1886,but cannot find an Edith Margaret Martin in the birth indexes for 1885-1887.

She married Samuel Elsey (1886-1981) at Hernhill Parish Church,Faversham,Kent on 25th December 1913.Have looked at local papers for a possible report on the wedding but found nothing.

They had one child Samuel George Elsey (1917-1975).

She died suddenly on 21st May 1936 following a fall at her home in Canterbury,Kent.I traced reports of her death and subsequent funeral in the local paper,which gave a detailed list of mourners,but found no mention of possible members of her family.

She was possibly born Kent,Surrey or Sussex and her fathers name was George Martin,a clerk.Checking the 1891 and 1910 Census have revealed no likely matches.

Two years of searching have yielded nothing,any suggestions or help would be much appreciated.
