Just wondering if anyone has any information on Ellen Martin, born in Philadelphia, USA, around 1876. Ellen Martin gave birth to my grandmother, Doris ‘Lulu’ Gwendoline Martin on March 5, 1900 in Wellington, New Zealand. Doris was adopted by James Doyle (1852-1926) and his wife Alice Brooks (1867-1954) in Wellington on May 19, 1900, and became Doris Gwendoline Martin Doyle. In 1919 Doris married Albert Harold Hanlon (1890-1982), and in 1928 married Francis Eric Quinlivan (1899-1986). There was no record of Doris' father on the adoption file, so it looks like the father will remain a mystery. I don't know if Ellen stayed in New Zealand or returned to the USA.
thanks very much,
I'm trying to find Martin or Martinez from New Mexico somewhere in the 1700 like: Pascual MARTIN married Maria Barbara GARCIA , and Jose Rafael MARTIN married Maria Manuela VALDEZ. I believe they are a part of my family tree.
I am trying to trace the family/descendents of Raymond Martin, who was in the army, stationed at South Shields in 1941-2. His home was "near Preston". I imagine that he was born around 1915 ... but that is just a guess.
Trying to find: Eve Martin nee Hayward believed to be in Perth Western Australia ,she is the daughter of George Hayward who is the son of George Hayward, sorry no dates or places Eve's Mother was Evelyn
