There is a wonderful Obit for Maurice de Lacy DUDLEY - 1935..don't know if you have had time to check him out properly, but he was also a radio announcer - his wife Mabel was also an actress

Its worth looking up the Will of Kathleen CROKER who died 1914 in Victoria- mentions the Dudley relatives

Kathleen CROKER is mentioned in Elizabeth PIERSE's Will of 1893 as a daughter....

and as result of this re-reading of Wills, I have been able to follow Mabel Marion DUDLEY....who had married Maurice De Lacey DUDLEY

1903
Name: Mabel Marion Dudley
Gender: Female
Electoral Year: 1903
State: Victoria
District: Kooyong
Subdistrict: Kew
Living 44 Sterling St, Kew- occ: ARTIST!

Then

Name: Mabel Marion Dudley
Spouse Name: Charles Richard Dyson
Marriage Date: 1937
Marriage Place: New South Wales
Registration Place: Albury, New South Wales
Registration Year: 1937
Registration Number: 22784
Living 20 Queen Street- Charles is a Traveller, Mabel, Home duties
he had been married before...see in Electoral rolls..and born 1870, so ages work!
he died 1953:
1953 16 Apr Burial
Springvale Crematorium, Victoria, Australia

and Mabel died 1951:

SPRINGVALE BOTANICAL CEMETERY
DYSON MABEL MARION THE CREMATED REMAINS HAVE BEEN COLLECTED CREMATED 17/08/1951

Father's Name: John Geo Masters
Mother's Name: Amelia Pierse
Registration Year: 1951
Registration Place: Victoria
Registration Number: 10939

Then after that I found a Tree on Ancestry!


Birth: 1874 - Australia
Marriage: 30 Mar 1903 - Kew, Victoria, Australia
Death: 1951 - Kew, Victoria, Australia
Parents: John George Masters, Amelia Minnie Pierse
Spouse: Maurice De Lacy Dudley

Kathleen CROKER details:

1841 Dec Birth Whitechapel, London, england


1866 26 Dec Age: 25
Marriage to John James Croker
Auckland, New Zealand
Episcopalian Church Otahuhu

1914 2 Apr Age: 72 Death St Kilda

They had one daughter in NZ who died as an infant:
1867/18137 Croker Mary Kathleen John James

actually the CROKER Tree is interesting as it shows the PIERSE daughters moved about - Kathleen to NZ and another married in Tasmania...Florence Joanna P to MCLEOD - her Will is also online -1911 - good clues there as well
