Note on Marriage 1

on Georgina's marriage certificate, he's called Robert William /anstruther/ (mark)

Note on Marriage 2

where does the possible surname 'root' come from?

Note on Husband: Robert George BENNETT (1)

Bede Bailey quoted philip's suggestion that GE's father might have been a youhg Earl of Minto who was aide-de-camp to Lord Roberts during the Afghan wars, and apparently returned urgently home on some pressing family business.

 

Robert said to have married a Mary Henry from Co. Sligo [d.1908 age 70].

This would put her d.o.b. as about 1839.

But if Georgina gave birth to Florrie in 1903 at age 17-18 it would

make Georgina's d.o.b. 1885, which would make Mary aged 46 and I believe that Georgina was not the youngest of the sibs. Rather a mature age for childbearing!t i

 

Yes - but if her first child was born 1866, she would have been bearing children from ages 28-46 - perhaps making up for starting late!

Note on Husband: Robert George BENNETT (3)

The 'george' given in GEA's birth certificate, under 'father'

Note on Wife: Mary HENRY? PORTER?

TMA described her as GEA's "aristocratic wife who had never washed a dish"

 

 

?mistress of ?Anstruther? - aide de camp of Lord Roberts in Afghan wars

possiblly Mary

Henry from Co. Sligo [d.1908 age 70]. this would put her d.o.b. as about

1839. But if Georgina gave birth to Florrie in 1903 at age 17-18 it would

make Georgina's d.o.b. 1885, which would make Mary aged 46 and I believe

that Georgina was not the youngest of the sibs. Rather a mature age for

childbearing!

 

 

Sally Anstruther who is Dominic's daughter. She says Robert married a Mary

Henry from Co. Sligo [d.1908 age 70]. this would put her d.o.b. as about

1839. But if Georgina gave birth to Florrie in 1903 at age 17-18 it would

make Georgina's d.o.b. 1885, which would make Mary aged 46 and I believe

that Georgina was not the youngest of the sibs. Rather a mature age for

childbearing!
