Thanks for responding to my inquiry. You have found my father (Lionel Argent), his brother, my Uncle Walter, and my great Uncle Walter Gordon Kirton.
I would be interested in hearing more about Robert and Stella. I'm not sure if they would be relatives or not.There were several of our Kirton family relatives that settled in South Africa and Rhodesia in the mid to late 1800's to whom they may have been related.
I'm quite sure that Walter Sr. had no children and he was busy travelling around the world in the first two decades of the century.He and his wife were in their 50's when they moved to Kenya. She died in 1924.
Walter Jr. never married to my knowledge but I can't say for sure. Also I don't know if would have had children. However since he didn't arrive in Kenya until the early 1920's the ones you mentioned can't be his.
I would defintely be pleased to share information with you by e-mail so we can swap photographs etc. My address is email@example.com.
Don't be fooled by the "mountain" in my e-mail address.I live in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and the "mountain" is the Niagara Escarpment.My daughter climbed Mt. Kili two summers ago, so she laughs about our "Hamilton mountain". She's hopng to do Everest next spring.
By the way, I have four Cousins living in England with whom I share the same Kirton great grandparents.They lived in Africa including parts of Kenya and Uganda for a number of years as children, their father being a Veterinian working through the British Government Services.I believe it was during the late 30's and 40's. If you would like, I could give one of them your e-mail address when I have it and he may wish to ask you some questions or share information about their parents.Their family name is Peck. Their father's Christian names were Edward Finch (Peck).
