Hello,

The Sydney Morning Herald - Wednesday 23 November 1881 p.1
MARRIAGES
LEWIN - FLETCHER.-November 5, at the residence of the bride's parents by the Rev. C. W. Philip, Charles James Lewin of Cowra, second son of the late Edward Lewin, to Flora Louisa, fourth daughter of Illingworth Fletcher of Grenfell.

Father: Edward LEWIN b. 1813 London
Mother: Emma Ann LUDGATER b. 1816 Mitcham, Surrey
16 Jul 1837 Newington Saint Mary, Surrey, England

2nd marriage for Flora:

3385/1897 FOSTER HENRY L - LEWIN FLORA L - LEICHHARDT

and Henry's initial L = Lewin

Henry L's parents:

559/1864 FOSTER HENRY N - LAVIN EMMA A - SYDNEY

Is LAVIN an error for LEWIN? Or did Henry not get middle name Lewin from his mother?

Now I'm wondering if there is a connection or not - 1837 and 1864 ???

Regards,

Dave

Edward died 15 Jun 1876 at Woolloomooloo.

1373/1876 LEWIN EDWARD AGE 63 YEARS DIED SYDNEY SYDNEY

So we must have 2x Emma A's.

So the Emma A LEWIN who married in 1864 is not Emma LUDGATER.

When did they both die?

Possible:

522/1874 LEWIN EMMA A - JAMES - EMMA A - SYDNEY

LEWIN Emma Ann Death notice 16APR1874 Death 58 late of Darlinghurst Sydney Morning Herald 17APR1874

The article on the inquest into his drowning states he was a widow, therefore his wife died before 1876 if that helps to find her death etc.

Thanks gibbo. :)

Yes, Emma Ann died 2 years earlier.

Flora's 2nd spouse was the nephew of her first. Or you could say Flora's 2nd mother-in-law was the daughter of Flora's 1st mother-in-law. :2fun:

I have to check the DOUGLAS connection to wrap this one up.
