I am looking for family related to Ethel Watts born 11 Feb 1882 ? in Warrickshire England. And her motherAMY ELLIS born approx 1854
ETHEL died in NZ 15 May 1951 aged 69 years. (Her parents were Amy (27) and William Watts Bootmaker (31) in the 1881 census and married 7 May 1872.) She had siblings Bernard Ellis & Margaret born in UK and Arthur Graham, Edna Mary & Mable Gertude born in NZ. Some of this family later went on to live in Australia.
Ethels mother Amy was born 1853 either as an Ellis or Clarke. Her son is Bernard Ellis. Was she adopted by her mothers 2nd husband? There is an Amy Watts nee Ellis on Ethels marriage cert. Amy died in NZ in 1919 after falling off a tram. Can anyone help??????
