New to this website because I found a link on it via Google to a family member. 'Webwiz' had posted information in Sep 2014 on my great grandfather Simon Winter. I had uncovered the same details as his 8/9/14 post from his daughter Ellen's marriage certificate, but so far little more except possible post office directory and tax listings. I'm wondering why I haven't been able to locate his birth, marriage, death details, etc. If 'Webwiz' can post a response, I can add some information that two late aunts gave me - which deepen the mystery. I also wondered about the Nellie Bryan link, as a possible spouse, but the dates don't gel. Simon's daughter was born in 1887. The Winter/Bryan marriage took place in 1889. But, as Simon's wife Ellen was left to bring up her daughter from an early age (with much help from a Mary Ann Ladbrook - see 1901 Census, St Geo East, Stepney, RG 13/312), perhaps Simon died soon after her birth. But the aunts I spoke to indicated other reasons. Simon has been an incredibly elusive character, about whom I'd like to know more. Can 'Webwiz' or anyone else help? Thanks.
