Qld. Marriage 1922/C01647 Loury Robert James Joseph - Kercher Elsie Lucy Elizabeth

The Brisbane Courier (Qld. : 1864 - 1933) - Friday 9 September 1921 p.6
ENGAGEMENT NOTICES
LOURY - KERCHER.-The engagement is announced of Miss Elsie Lucy Kercher, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Kercher, Toogoolawah, to Mr. Robert James Loury, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. R. Loury, of Toogoolawah.


Looking for the birth of Elsie and the marriage of her parents.

I doubt very much it's this one:

Marriage 1907/B5229 Kercher George James - Jane Prettis Milham

I've done the LOURY side but have not found a death for Lucy. Elsie preferred the name Lucy, but don't know what might be in the records.

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks gibbo. :)

That's a bit curious. A marriage in Surrey but shipping record has F= Foreign not B= British port of departure.

No reg for Elsie in England 1900-1902.

Yes, thanks gibbo.

It all fits but where is the reg?

I'm searching again using k* but it will probably time out.

Birth Date: 1910?
Death Date: 12 Oct 1964

A Loury daughter married a Hamilton. So a Hamilton middle name for a Loury is weird.
