I am a descendent of Jane Ann Essex (first married name) (1871 - 1953) and
(?) RICHARDS (died before 1908) who lived in St. Helena during the period
1895 – 1903. They were both born in the UK. Jane's husband was in the
British Army, stationed at the St Helena Garrison during those years. I am
not certain whether RICHARDS died in St Helena or whether it was soon after
arriving in South Africa with his wife and children c 1901-1903.
had a number of children who died either at birth or in infancy. Their
living children, born in St. Helena, were:
1)Catherine Charlotte (Lottie)
b.15.6.1890; d.1973, UK. married in South Africa: William George
Straffon They returned to the UK in 1920 with their children.
Any help in tracing
these births/deaths and any other descendents of Jane Ann and her first
husband, RICHARDS, would be most appreciated.
