Hi everyone, My grandfather was Henry James Avery, born Hythe Kent in 1893
His parents were James Avery and Emily Burton, married 1891. On the census record 1901 there is a George Avery and Chris Avery (F) We know he had 3 sisters, Edie, Nan and Florence (1913) But had no knowledge of a brother. Emily Burton Avery died in 1946, and I do not know Edie or Nans real names. My grandfather came to Australia in 1913. I don't know when his father died either. Hope somebody can help me out. Gemma:biggrin:

Hi Gemma

1901 census shows the family @ Isle of Thanet, and shows George and "Chris" born in Margate:
Margate is a sub district of Kent.

See here: http://www.ukbmd.org.uk/genuki/reg/districts/thanet.html for a list of registration districts in Thanet.



"Chris" looks more like Elsie to me- it's a bit hard to read, however I do not believe the name reads Chris when you look at the image.
