An Elusive Ancestor
I am interested in George Ambler Wilding born 1884.. He was the 3rd of 4 sons (his brothers were Henry, Thomas and Frederick) of Alfred and Kate Wilding of Newport. Alfred had an outfitters shop, possibly on Stow Hill. George worked there before moving to London in about 1906. In 1909 he married Florence Cunningham at St Saviours Paddington, although this marriage ended in divorce 5 years later. Does anyone have any knowledge of the Wildings in Newport?
red mail Sarah Jane Short and William Hillier.
Hi, I am looking for the marriage between Sarah Jane Short and William Hillier, I presume it was around 1869-72, they had 11 children, their first born was Mary Ann or Elizabeth Mary Ann, there's a bit of confusion there, born about 1871 in Glamorgan. It states on census forms Sarah Jane came from Tiddington. I cannot find their marriage anywhere, I've had a thought Sarah Jane might have been married before and used her previous married name on the marriage certificate to William Hillier They lived in Newport, William Hillier was a postman, they are on the census forms from 1871 onwards. My Grandmother was Florence Mable Hillier born 1886 she married William J Wakeley. It is her birth certificate which shows Sarah Jane's former name being Short. I am at a brickwall. Would be grateful if anyone knows how I can find Sarah Jane and Williams marriage. Thank you, Regards Christine

red mail William Moore & Sons (builders)
Am trying to put together my family tree. William Moore apparently came to Newport from Bideford, North Devon in the late 1800's and set up his building firm, building many houses in Coldra Road, Newport, and elsewhere - including some fine houses on Cardiff Road opposite the Royal Gwent Hospital. Around the same time the other major builders in the town were 'Tommy' Hill and Preece. William Moore's firm also built the fine Victorian Hotel the Waterloo, which is situated opposite the entrance to the Old Town Dock and the Transporter Bridge. My grandfather, Edwin James Moore, one of the four sons, was the 'clerk of works' on the Waterloo hotel project. Another of the sons was Jack Moore, who, in partnership with a gentleman called Ford established the major local ironmongers "Ford & Moore" in Commercial Street, on the opposite corner from the site of 'Woolworths'. Edwin married Annie Elizabeth Gibbons - and their son Kenneth Gordon Moore, my father, married Daisy Dixon, who used to work in the post office in Lliswerry. Can Anyone help provide more & earlier detail please?
