Newspaper report.

For some reason I can't find this in Trove. :confused:

Notice Type - Marriage
Marriage Date: 18 Jun 1898
Father - John Thomas Bedford
Spouse - Elizabeth Daxter(Barrow)

Can some kind soul have a peek please.

Hoping they are both widowed.!!

Thanks.

Thanks Val & Gibbo.(y)

This birth fits for Walter, being the father, but Elizabeth Daxter/Barrow, not the mother. (Slight alteration to my tree then. No first marriage to Walter found, and no birth found, to confirm the mother).

Sydney Thomas Bedford, BIRTH 1888 • Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand.

Sydneys mother must have died New Zealand.:rolleyes:

Just to confuse matters, Elizabeth Barrow's parents, are both Barrow's.:eek:.......John Barrow married Mary Barrow, 23 Mar 1858 • Bratton Flemming, Devon, England.

Easy stuff this, ain't it.:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

I can't see the birth for Sydney in NZ index.

There are Bedford births in NZ with father = Walter Scott and mother = Ellen but they don't fit.

Can't find a marriage in NZ for Emily Adeline or Helen Maud Beatrice.

Looks to be marriages to fit for Margaret and Eliza.

Something to ponder, Steve.. This fits with Val's find in post #3, So Sydney Thomas may possibly be Walter's stepson.

NZ Births:
1887/19749 Daxter Sydney Thomas
Mother = Elizabeth
Father = Thomas

Geoff

EDIT: Correction [bold]

Holy crap.......that's a can of worms I never expected. This will just about decimate this side of the family tree.

Thomas Daxter....divorce, or abandonment, or prison/criminal, or was Elizabeth Barrow/Daxter a bigamist. :rolleyes:

Yikes, and more yikes. :eek::eek:

This is the maternal side of my daughters. :oops:

Bring it on Geoff. (y):D

It's a shame that all what was to be found about this Bedford family, has no real relevance now.

Family history, is family history........can't change it, can we.;):)
