Chanters of Barnstaple
Children of John Roberts Chanter and Julia Bean Latham of Barnstaple:
Edith Mary Chanter 1852-1929 married Edwin Stubbington Penny in 1878 in Barnstaple, Devon, England. They apparently went to South America and she was "the first European woman to cross the Andes on a donkey". Has anyone every heard of this?
Edwin died in Bideford, Devon in 1882. Edith later married Frederick Naboth Burt (late of Sydney, Australia) in Dursley, Glos. in 1889.
Edith's brother, Reginald Richard Chanter was "a sheep farmer and actor" in Australia. He married Annie Henson Gibbings in Melbourne in 1890. He died in Paddington, London in 1922. Annie died in Putney in 1932. Does anyone know anything else about this couple.
If anyone is connected to this lot I have masses of info on the family.
