I can see the name of Grandads second wife as Florence, I can see there that Moms sister Nancy is shown with her married name to (Douglas) Sturgess and also Mums married name to (Arthur) Newey but they can't all have been living there as far as I know as Mum & Dad lived with Dads Mum when first married, also in Yardley Wood
That explains it, thank you, I wonder if the Jervis family were wealthy as were the Faunts? if so it could explain why they must have disapproved of Marion Jervis marrying common labourer Grandad and shunned him after the death of Marion.I think from the post your grandmother was born a Jervis and it was her Mother (your Gt Grandmother) who was a Faunt.
Thank you pimburns, that's even more interesting info, it explains how he came to be in Austria.I was looking for the war diary but at the moment it seems to stop in 1917. 1/5th btn became part of the 48th (South Midland) division - this clip outlines their movement in 1918 and where they were in November.
Not sure, probably 1943/4 but it was during the war as dad has his RAF uniform on and had been given special short leave, mum then went with him to a remote airfield base somewhere, possibly in the Orkneys, dad was an aircraft electrician on Lancasters & also Blenheims I think.Frank and his wife Florence plus the 2 girls were there when the register was taken in Sept 1939. The register continued to be updated as girls got married hence their married names showing. When did your Mom marry?
This is really fascinating so thank you all who are contributing, I wonder how they came to be in Brazil because they were obviously wealthy by then.Herbert was b1869 Lichfield (registered as Jarvis). Father was James an agricultural labourer in 1881.
Annie's father Frederick was a cabinet maker and they must have travelled a bit because 2 of Annie's siblings were born in Brazil. Frederick was born in Lincolnshire the son of a wheelwright.
