Ruby was born 1893 in India to Robert Henry Dowling, accountant, and his wife Jane Ellen Rutledge. She travelled to England during WW1 as a nurse, but does not appear on the Nursing Register post-war. She married Selwyn Simons in 1919 in Oswestry, Shropshire, England but they broke up soon after. Ruby next shows up in passenger list to Mombasa in 1924, again described as a nurse. Then she shows up in the Kenya Gazette as Ruby Eileen Simons, married woman, as a bankrupt in 1926. I can't find her in passenger lists returning to Britain and cannot find her in marriage or death records in Britain either. I've had a look in back issues of the East African Standard for 1926 - sadly only the Saturday edition is available in London - and can find no mention of her.
Two questions: does anyone know anything about her time in Kenya, before or after the bankruptcy? And has anyone any idea as to how to do more research?
