1943 NSW Electoral Roll - East Sydney - ?
JARRETT Percy Brown,

Can't find in index after that.

Why did Christina wait until 1960? Wait 7 years for Percy to be declared dead or did he die just before or during 1960?

2nd 28007/1960 EDMUNDS JAMES THOMAS - JARRETT CHRISTINA - PARRAMATTA ** 12 Oct

Death 19957/1969 EDMUNDS CHRISTIANA - FREDERICK - JANE - BURWOOD ** 29 May

Age is out:

Death 19877/1943 JARRETT PERCY 71 YRS LIVERPOOL LIVERPOOL ** 2 Aug

Not in Ryerson - Can't find a notice in TROVE


Looking for Percy after 1943 and for his death. Good luck. :biggrin:

The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954)
Saturday 27 July 1918

IN DIVORCE.
(Before Mr. Justice Gordon.)
JARRETT v JARRETT.
A decree for judicial separation was granted in the suit of Christina Jarrett (formerly Rigden) against Percy Brown Jarrett. His Honor had previously held that the desertion alleged by the petitioner had not been proved, and dismissed the suit; but, at the request of petitioner's counsel, re-opened the case for further argument. The present decree was the result of further consideration after additional argument.

It seems her parents are John and Hannah.

No match with that death I posted.

However that does not agree with a tree:

Father: Frederick Elms
Mother: Mary Jane Rigden b: 1853 in Ashford Kent

Marriage 1 Percy Brown Jarrett b: 1879 in Folkestone Kent
Married: 1901 in West Ashford, Kent, England

Was she born before her parents married or is that wrong and her parents are John & Hannah. ???

John & Hannah are probably related but not her parents.

It seems the first 4 daughters married in NSW. Don't know about Olive.

Yes thanks gibbo.

Paupers grave so nobody knew his real age.

That 1882 birth is the only ch* Rigden in Sussex 1875 - 1887.

I can't find her in 1891 or 1901 in FS as Rigden.
