    2) My G/Mother Alexander's wife Fernanda B. 1875 (nee White) in 1901 census giving lodging to her MOTHER Marie White listed as "Swiss National" age 50 yrs - having married Fernanda's Father in Ireland Co Monahon - we cannot find him or Fernanda's birth - no clues at all - rumour says he was posted in India and married Marie for a Nursemaid to his children - maybe he had been widowed but Fernanda belonged to Marie possibly she may have had half siblings?...would love to know more about Fernanda and Marie White. It is possible that Fernanda had a Gt Aunt Sarah who was murdered.

    Hello Hazel
    The Society's database contains a lot of information on your family - our tree for them currently starts with a marriage in 1737. Obviously this is too much information to post on the forum but if you contact me via contact details given on the Society's website I can let you have more details.
