I have discarded one tree. :eek:

It does appear the births fit up to Amelia in 1871 but not those listed up to 1888 on another tree.

I think I have the two previous marriages and Harriet's maiden name now.

Lots of Harriet CHILDS born in England who could fit.

I think that tree has lost its way a little...

Edith Maud Woods
Birth Date: 1884
Father: Henry Robert Woods
Mother: Sarah Ann Jane
Birth Place: New South Wales
Registration Year: 1884
Registration Place: Windsor, New South Wales
Registration number: 21953

More so since it gives the the death as 1884 London

Yes, the children listed after Amelia don't fit.

Search the index for Woods in RD Windsor regardless of parents and get children. :D

Interesting how info is omitted:

If age is correct it would rule that one out.

Windsor and Richmond Gazette (NSW : 1888 - 1954) (about) Previous issue Friday 21 April 1916

WOODS — In loving memory of my dear mo-
ther, Harriet Woods, who passed away
on April 20th, 1915, in her 84th year.
I often think of you, dear mother,
And think of how you died,
But, oh, it was hard to think
I could not say good-bye.
Inserted by her loving daughter, Emily
Clout.

So the age is good

Thanks Geoff.

That's curious. The index has the age as 63. No other 1915 reg that fits.
