Ellen WOODBRIDGE formerly KIRKLAND

NSW Birth
WOODBRIDGE, VERA M - 39506/1906 - ? - ELLEN - TAMWORTH
KIRKLAND, VERA M - 39506/1906 - ? - ELLEN - TAMWORTH


I don't have a copy of the full birth certificate but Ellen is listed as a 'married' woman WOODBRIDGE formerly KIRKLAND aged 28, born Coonamble, NSW.

What can be found for that Ellen?

Thanks,

Dave

Re: Ellen WOODBRIDGE formerly KIRKLAND

No birth 1875 - 1881 in NSW index for a Helen/Ellen/Eleanor/Nellie/... KIRKLAND.

No WOODBRIDGE - KIRKLAND marriage 1890 - 1906 in NSW index.

I think the father is Edward John WOODBRIDGE.

Re: Ellen WOODBRIDGE formerly KIRKLAND

If it's the same parents then I can't explain no other births.

Birth 3451/1898 WOODBRIDGE EDWARD J - EDWARD J - NELLIE - GRANVILLE * 27 Dec 1897

Two illegitmate children so far apart ?? EDIT: not the same father - see later posts

Edward John Peak
Birth Year: 1897 [26 Dec 1897]
Birth Place: Guildford, NSW
Date Received: 23 Feb 1911
Ship: Sobraon
Parents = Edward John Woodbridge & Helena Peak

Re: Ellen WOODBRIDGE formerly KIRKLAND

I think Ellen gave some false info for the 1906 birth - age and 'formerly Kirkland' as I can find nothing that fits.

However, I find it strange that the two births are so far apart so I may be wrong in saying same parents for both.
EDIT: not the same father - see later posts

Between 1915 and 1931 Ellen was SHEPHERD.

Marriage 9910/1925 NICHOLLS WILLIAM G - SHEPHERD VERA M SYDNEY * 5 Sep 1925

Death 14 May 1982/3455 Johnston Vera May - Harry Shepperd - Hellna -

Don't have a copy so don't know who the informant was and don't know what Vera might have been told re her father.

Born 1906 and married 1925 so no way of catching Vera in electoral rolls before she married.

Re: Ellen WOODBRIDGE formerly KIRKLAND

Thanks Val.

Two bits from Trove I didn't have.

Not divorced until 1912 but calling herself Mrs E Woodbridge in 1906.

Marriage 9177/1915 SHEPHERD WILLIAM H - PEAK HELENA - SYDNEY * 13 Sep 1915

So it's more likely William is Vera's father and not Edward.

Re: Ellen WOODBRIDGE formerly KIRKLAND

Age at death for Vera Sadler? Have not found her death yet.

8014/1957 BEAHAN PATRICK JOSEPH - SADLER VERA MAY - SYDNEY

Still can't find her age at death.

BEAHAM VERA MAY 31223/1970 EDWARD JOHN - MADELINE MARY - KOGARAH

BEAHAM Vera May Death notice 09AUG1970 Death 81 late of Guildford Sydney Morning Herald 11AUG1970

Ok that one is ruled out.

Re: Ellen WOODBRIDGE formerly KIRKLAND

Vera May born 2 Oct 1906. Ok, William is the father. Ellen using Woodbridge from 1898 to 1915 but not with Edward in 1906.

I'm off to the local library for a few hours, Val.

Re: Ellen WOODBRIDGE formerly KIRKLAND

Didn't spend as much time as I had planned at the library as the network connection was very poor.

This is a very complicated group of families and I'm still not sure we have found every bit of info on them or that it's all sorted yet.

The William living with "Mrs E Woodbridge" in 1906 and Vera born later that year.

Birth 22721/1881 HELLIER WILLIAM HENRY - FREDERICK - SUSAN ELIZABETH - NARRABRI * 27 Jun 1881

Their marriage

Marriage 9177/1915 SHEPHERD WILLIAM H - PEAK HELENA - SYDNEY * 13 Sep

His death and cannot explain the change to Wilson or why the informant has his father as William.

Death 14079/1960 WILSON WILLIAM HENRY - WILLIAM HENRY - SUSAN ELIZABETH - BURWOOD * 29 May

---
1st Marriage 9910/1925 NICHOLLS WILLIAM G - SHEPHERD VERA M - SYDNEY * 5 Sep

Item 1187/1947 / Divorce papers William George Nichols - Vera May Nichols (14/03/1947 - 15/06/1948 )

2nd 18982/1948 JOHNSTON DAVID LESLIE - NICHOLS VERA - GLEBE * 24 Jul

Her death and pity no maiden name for her mother (Colclough)

Qld. Death 14 May 1982/3455 Johnston Vera May - Harry Shepperd - Hellna -
