Re: WENDES NSW Australia
My name is Juanita and my step-mum's maiden name is Wendes.She has also been trying to trace her family tree for many years but gave up until now. As I have access to the internet I will research on her behalf.
The basic facts that I have been given are as follows:-
My step-mum's name is Sheila Jacobs (nee Wendes) her siblings are Victor, Christine, Joan, Beryl and Malcolm.
Her parents were Leslie Victor Wendes - born 21/07/1907, deceased July 1965 and Marjorie Connie Webb - born 02/10/1907, deceased December 2003.
Leslie's siblings were as follows:-
Frank, William, Dulcie, Edward, Doreen and Eileen.
Leslie was born at 3 Cross Lane, Newport, Isle of Wight.
He was the son and sibling of a one William Wendes - born 1863 and a Mary Ann Earney of Littletown, Arreton.
William Wendes was the son of George Wendes born at Haven Street, Ryde in 1833.
George Wendes was the son of Charles Wendes (date unknown).
This is all I have at present, if these details ring any 'historical bells' please come back to me, if not, good luck in your search, and I will keep hunting!
Many thanks for your time,
