Flora Iris Aldridge

Postby brunes08 » Wed Aug 08, 2018 10:11 am

Flora Iris Rodgers was born in 1875 in Battersea, Surrey - parents Frank and Hannah. In 1896, she married William Poole Hands in London. They had one daughter - also Flora Iris. William died shortly after. Flora then married George John Aldridge in May,1901 in Croydon, Surrey - signing herself F Iris Hands. After this date, I can find no further information on her whereabouts. In the 1911 census, her mother states that she had given birth to 6 children, four living and two deceased. The four living are accounted for and one of the deceased (a son). I was told that Flora had died when quite young but I cannot find a death for her between 1901 and 1911, to fit with her mother's statement, or after. Her daughter was with her grandmother on the 1901 census and with an aunt in the 1911 census. I understood her daughter eventually went to relatives near Manchester. Any help finding what happened to mother and/or daughter would be gratefully received.

What addresses are given for each of them on the 1901 marriage certificate, and what does it say about George John ALDRIDGE (age, condition, occupation, father etc.) ?

Thank you woodchal. The death for William is the correct one. I'll follow up the Ashton details to see if they fit with anything else I know or if they mean anything to other family members.
AnthonyM - the details I have for Flora and George's marriage are:
George John Aldridge - 40 years - widower - House decorator Master - 52 Beulah Road North, Thornton Heath - father Robert Aldridge deceased.
Flora Iris Hands - 25 years - widow - no occupation stated - 23 Kingston Road, West Hampstead - father Frank Rogers. (Rodgers/Rogers on different certificates/census returns etc).
Witnesses are Ethel Legge and WR McLeod

I have a copy of both Flora and George on their respective entries in the 1901 census but these have not helped me to trace Flora or George.

George is at the same address as on the marriage certificate with much the same details. He was 40 years, a widower and born in Horsham, Sussex. He is with a daughter, Jessie aged 10 yrs, his sister Matilda Legge (44 yrs) also born Horsham. There is also a boarder, William Blackman aged 24 bn Caterham, Surrey. This is on RG13/647.
Flora is also at the address on her marriage certificate - 23 Kingston Road. She is a 'housemaid domestic'. It is difficult to read the name of some of the inhabitants of the house because the writing is poor. It looks like Greenfield, Frank G aged 31 bn Worthing, Sussex. This is on RG13/127. Flora is written as Florence but this may be because it was thought to be her full name. All the other details are correct. Should you want to check out this return, it is easier to look for an uncle staying there as the writing and the transcription are easy to see. Nathan Alexander aged 80 born Germany.
