View Full Version : Frank Ford Partridge

15-06-2008, 10:58 AM
My uncle, Frank Ford Partridge, born Southampton 1872, his wife, Diana Mary, and their daughter Gertrude Daisy, born Eastleigh 1891, left the area for South Wales in the 1890s and my father had no further contact with them.

I have found that in 1901 he was a painter and house decorater in Canton, Cardiff. Also that Diana died in 1925 and Frank was married again later the same year to Martha A Rogers who came from the Pembroke area.

They had a son John Malcolm in 1926 and he appears to have married Mabel Frear in 1947, and lived at 70 Marlborough Road, Cardiff. Frank died 31/03/1950 at 145 Albany Road, Cardiff East.

Can anyone provide me with any further information about these unknown relations please?

Two corrections to the previous message.

It seems that Frank's second wife Martha Augusta Rogers was born in the Pontypool area in 1886, though they were married in the Pembroke area.

Also John Malcolm Partridge's wife was not Mabel Frear but Kathleen M Gifford and the marriage took place in the 1st quarter of 1947 in Cardiff. The addresses given remain the same.

Hope this information may renew interest.

If you check the GRO complete birth indexes from 1947 onward using the surname Partridge and maiden name Gifford you may find some children. I have used 118.com for current addresses. Some might have a better solution. 192.com also provides electoral rolls and address info but I have not used them as I don't know how much it would cost.
