    Default Ian Scott Paton 1920-1985.

    Can anyone help me trace relatives of the above gentleman? He was supintendant of Police in the West Indies 1946-1957, where he lived with his wife Ellen, and daughters Wendy, Carole and Susan. I have discovered some correspondance of theirs which I would like to return to them.

    Welcome to the British Genealogy Forum.

    Geographical information can often be useful. Is that his death registered in Chichester? If so, it would probably be useful to check Voter’s lists, marriage announcements for the daughters, etc.

    Thank You.
    I have already tried your suggestions but have come to a dead end. A friend suggested if I could get a post in West Indies someone might be able to help. I'm not sure how to do a personal message. i presume I need to know someone to send it to?

    There is a public tree on ancestry with these people in it. The daughters names are private but the owner of the tree may be able to give you more information unless of course it is your tree?

    If you obtain a copy of the grant and will of his widow Iis the one Pamela found the right person?) you will get valuable clues on locating the daughters.
