Hi to the list.
I am trying to trace my Great Grandmother, Ethel Louisa WORBY's family, can anyone
I know my Great Grandmother married in Rawalpindi on the 2nd day of April 1908. She
married Edgar Kirk HEMPSALL. Their marriage record states that Ethel's father was
Henry David WORBY and he acted as a witness to this marriage.
I believe that Henry D WORBY may have come from Ipswich, England and may have been serving
in the Armed Forces, I know that at the time of the marriage Edgar HEMPSALL was serving in
the Indian Army.
I do not, at this moment in time have a mother for Ethel or Louisa as she preferred,
though it is a possibility that her mother was from Yorkshire.
Ethel was born in 1892, she is recorded as 16 yrs when she married, though I don't
know if she was born in the UK or if she was born in India, I'm totally lost on this
part of my family!
Can anyone point me in the right direction to find any records of personnel serving for
the British Army or Indian Army at the beginning of the 20th century, and is it possible
to find records of births to Soldiers in India?
Any help would be very gratefully received.
