I am new to this site and am seeking help to find Edward Wells Robinson b c 1874 Brighton or London but possibly lived in Brighton or Hove. His parents are believed to be Henry and Ellen/Helen. Edward travelled to Australia and married Katherine Gertrude Murtough in 1915 In Sydney and lived in Manly And also died there in 1938. Any clues would be gratefully accepted

Not confirmed this is the marriage in Sussex but I can't find a birth around 1880 that fits.

Marriages Jun Qtr 1876
ROBINSON Henry - Westhampnett 2b 579
WELLS Ellen - Westhampnett 2b 579

And I can't find the family in 1881 census.

EDIT: Rule that marriage out.

I just crossed referenced the above with free bmd. But you would have already known that birth was a male due to having to submit the ***.

I can't find a death for Ellen that fits.
 
Not sure if this is helpful..

A tree has this, not checked or validated..

"Henry ROBINSON was born in 1832 in Portland, Somerset, his father, Edward, was 38 and his mother, Mary, was 36. He had one son with Ellen BUSH in 1874. He died in 1875 at the age of 43."

Given that Henry and Ellen are found in 1871, the above looks wrong.

Dunno Geoff.

I can't prove Ellen married twice. I still can't find a marriage that fits. I get Cripps, King and Newell.
