Hi Dave,

Lucy dau age 9 born Acton

Hello Julie,

Thanks. I have no knowledge that they both used their middle name but the family name is uncommon so that's probably the right family.

Frank was born in Queensland in 1890. I have no idea when he arrived in England. I'm presuming Mary/Lucy didn't leave England until after they married.

I can't see a service record for Frank on Australian site.


Thanks Julie.

I'm counting how many Lucys we have born about 1850 in Silsoe Bedfordshire. :)

Hello Julie,

Thank you very much. It's that sort of name for transcribers. :rolleyes:

That's probably Dortmund.
