Hi Folks, I have a doozy of a brickwall, here. I have a fellow called Robert Claude HALFORD, who was born in Stoke Newington and baptised 14 Apr 1889 there in the Parish of St Andrew [source London Metropolitan Archives, Stoke Newington St Andrew, Register of Baptism, p94/and, Item 001]. He married a lass called Marguerite around 1914. The problem is - NO-ONE in the family can remember Marguerite's maiden name. What is known about her is: Marguerite's middle name begins with the letter E It is believed her birth date is 27 Sep 1883 It is believed she and her family were from Guernsey She left England in Aug 1922 with Robert and her son Richard arriving in New York She died in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe 21 Nov 1968 She was a Miniature & landscape painter in Zimbabwe She and Robert were either married in the Channel Isles or in England proper - no sign of a marriage certificate in either location. Searching the Channel Isles Census records (1891& 1901) have pulled 3 possible candidates named Marguerite, but from my perspective, the link to Robert Halford needs to be confirmed in order to work backwards as details of Marguerite's family are also lacking (that is, a Census won't help because all I have at the moment is her First Name and Initial and there are no initials shown on the Census!). Any thoughts and help, gratefully accepted!!!! from sunny Sydney, Australia!!!!
