2/2/09 George & Alice Ranger: updated information in connection to a Thomas Guildford of England.
Alice Isabella Ranger (nee: Edwards) immigrated to NSW Australia in 1922 on the SS Euriprides arriving in Sydney on the 6/8/1922 -after her step-father Thomas Guildford's 2nd marriage in 1922. George Thomas Ranger (Alice's husband) arrived in Sydney from Auckland New Zealand in January 1921 on the Port Adelaide as a merchant seaman. After WW1 George Thomas Ranger (Alice Isabella's husband) had continued as a merchant seaman working his way out to New Zealand / Australia -where he sent for his wife(Alice Isabella) and daughters to join him. Alice Isabella Ranger(nee Edwards) immigrated to NSW (Australia)with their 3 daughters: Rosemary A E born 1910 Enfield London England Ivy O K born 1912 Lambeth Surrey England Mary L E born 1915 Bromley Kent England Another child - a son Kenneth R Ranger was born in NSW (Australia) ~ 1924/27 -ish (according to Alice & George Rangers'death certificates). George Thomas Ranger died 1941 NSW. His parents were nominated as Henry Ranger and Emma Diplock. Alice Isabella Ranger died 1965 NSW. Her mother was Alice Edwards (1860-1920)later Guildford .Although the name is nominated as Slade on the death certificate of Alice Isabella Ranger -it is actually Edwards. Alice Edwards husband was a Thomas E Guildford -who she married 1904 Kilburn MDX England. This was Alice Isabella Edwards Ranger's step-father(Thomas Guildford).WhoI am trying to find out about.
Alice Isabella (Edwards) Ranger (died 1965) and her hudband George Thomas Ranger (died 1941)are both buried in the Salvation Army Cementery at Sandgate NSW.
Their married daughters were: 1944 - Mary L E Ranger married Ronald S F Laidler -NSW 1927 - Rosemary A E Ranger married Leslie Gardner - NSW
It is unknown if Ivy Ranger married as she was still single on her fathers death certificate in 1941.It is unknown if Kenneth R Ranger married?
Any information much appreciated on this 'Ranger' family - as I am trying to find out about Thomas Guildford -the step father of Alice Isabella (Edwards) Ranger. As the family of this 'step daughter'may be able to help me find out about my g grandfather who Alice Isabella (Edwards) Ranger mother Alice Edwards was married too between 1904 - 1920 England. I am hoping this sounds 'familiar' and are able to help me. Regards Elizabeth Visser (Perth Western Australia)
