    Just putting this down so that I don't lose them -

    GIBSON, ANNIE MARGARET STURGESS
    GRO Reference: 1882 M Quarter in WINDSOR Volume 02C Page 457

    GIBSON, HARRIET ALICE LOUISE STURGESS
    GRO Reference: 1886 M Quarter in PANCRAS Volume 01B Page 28

    GIBSON, JANET STURGESS
    GRO Reference: 1884 M Quarter in STGEORGE HANOVER SQUARE Volume 01A Page 512

    and -

    I think this may be the baptism of the Robert whose probate record Caroline found, as the birth date fits the Robert who is living at 26, Kingsway in 1939. Not sure why John Albert Rasell would be granted the probate though. He didn't appear to marry a Gibson -

    Name:
    Robert Cowie Gibson - Male - Birth Date 26 May 1855 - Birth Place Falkirk,Stirling,Scotland - Father David Gibson - Mother Mary Nimmo - FHL Film Number 6035516

    Oh sorry Tessie - I was still posting and hadn't seen this. Where did you find the marriage to his eldest daughter? The only marriage I could find for John Albert Rasell was to a Queenie V Clapson.

    The eldest daughter married a Clapson, but I have a death of 1918, so stopped looking at her. Maybe it is a grandchild?

    the middle chid is not in the census, so assume she died.

    I have just looked at the census, the children are on there - including Queenie

    https://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bi...83&usePUB=true

    William E Clapson 37
    Annie M Clapson 30
    Willie R Clapson 5
    Winnie V Clapson 2
    Lottie C Clapson 2/12

    I would assume that means Janet no longer alive in 1940? I think she remarries a William Fox, Have found a marriage record

    Joseph Sultzman appears to have died in 1918 St George Hanover Square.

    Hilda May Sultzman, the daughter of Janet and Joseph Sultzman, appears to have married Archibald F Mildenhall in 1928 and gone out to Australia in 1950 with her husband and daughter and died there (I don't know when as I don't have world access). I wonder if Janet went our and died there?

    Ooh thanks Chrissie - I don't have worldwide either but would explain why I can't find a death I guess!
