My grandfather Walter Vincent Wakeham (b 13/11/1873 Totnes) who I think was the son of Thomas & Mary Grace (nee WOTTON) Wakeham who I think were married in the Kingsbridge district of Devon in 1854. Am I correct? If so does anyone know when and where Mary Grace was born and who her antecedents were going further back? Any information would be appreciated.

Hi,
I am trying to connect a Ethel Mary Symms who it is thought was the daughter of Thomas Edward Wotton of Devon. Ethel Mary married a Frederick Cyril Heald Unwin and around 1930 emmigrated to New Zealand. Once there they had at least one duaghter called Kathleen Mary Unwin. Fred Unwin was born in 1900 in Sheffield. His grand mother was Hannah Schofield, also born in Sheffield.

I'm afraid that I do not have anything on Ethel Mary Symms or any of the others mentioned in your message.

However my grandmother was a Schofield (nee MacKenzie - born 1912 but not in Sheffield, died 1995 in London). Her husband was John Kershaw Schofield (possibly born London about 1890).

Sorry I cannot be of more assistance.

Hi , i think you are looking for Ethel Wotton ( Syms was here mothers maiden name ) . She married Cyril Unwin in 1932 and emigrated the next day . She was my great aunt . She died in about 1997/8 .

That is excellent news. I came across a web page written by Robert O'Connor from Christchurch NZ. He detailed Frederick Cyril Heald Unwin and his wife. I picked up on this becuase I have Fred in my family tree and new that his father had moved to Devon. The really interesting thing is that Hannah Schofield, as mentioned in the last message, had an older brother Henry that had emmigrated in 1873. I am in contact with that family, also living in Christchurch, but not until today did I know that another branch of the tree had emigrated. You should check out the Robert O'Conner stuff.

Thanks, Matt

I just found this database. I have an ancestor John Kershaw Schofield, born 1884, married Nellie Pearce in 1909. Of interest?

Jenny, did your John Kershaw Schofield, born 1884, possibly separate from Nellie Pearce at some time and marry a Hannah Ross MacKenzie before 1921/22?
