It has been a long time sinse I have wrote on here & done any research. Bailey Sol Firman of Brightlingsea Essex was married before coming out to Australia. I found on an aussie missing persons site a heap of information, letters from his wife Violet photos of him & so on. He also left behind in the UK a daughter. I have all copies in my possesion. FIRMAN, Violet, of Brighthingold [?] Essex England, wrote in 1917 re her husband Bailey FIRMAN, 34 yrs, seaman, who went to Australia over 6 years ago, and has not supported her for 4 years. She is 25, has a daughter 6 yrs. Not found. 7 pages (some damaged), and photo.. List 6. See top of page for costs involved in arranging copies of photographs. CONNECTION FOUND He was never married to my g g?grandmother.talk about skeletons in the closet.
Anyone with a stray Violet Firman in their family please get in touch
