country: ENGLAND

e_mail: CEGaules62@aol.com

ancestor: LAURA GEORGINA COURTENEY B 1861

comments: Her second marriage was to a REGINALD LATHAM WORKMAN.How long did this 
marriage last and were there any children from it? I cant find them on any census 
except her alone  here in Stevenage in 1901 but states shes married. 
 
My interest is we strongly believe that they are the parents of my Father's Mother
who they left at a pub and was bought up the Publicans family !! 
 
Elsie was very dark haired with brown eyes and almost olive skin, I have seen one 
portrait of LAURA SAMUDAand they certainly look alike. 
 
Any help or further information would be gratefully received.

My great grandfather, Isaac John Courtney, was born in County Clare,
Ireland c. 1853. He was in the Royal Irish Constabulary 1871-76. After he was dismissed, he came to Tasmania Australia and married Elizabeth Alice Phillips in 1883. I believe his parents were Isaac Courtney and Margaret Ardell, Protestants, married in Kilkee (registration district Kilrush) on 18 September 1846. I would like to know more of both of these, and their forebears.
