My GGrandparents were George Smith Askell Esther Ann Borger married 1879 Romford Essex England. They had 4 children Esther 1881,
George 1883, Alice Maud 1885 and Mary 1888. My GGrandmother died of childbirth and my GGrandfather remarried and had 7 more children.
They were Jessie 1889, Frederick 1891, Amy 1892, Edith 1894, Louisa 1895, Alfred 1897 and Walter 1899. I would love to hear from
anyone who may have news of this family.
My Grandmother was Alice (known as Maud)who came out to Melbourne, Australia, with her older sister Esther (known as Aunt Elizabeth
to my Dad) and her husband Thomas Clough.
Fred Askell served in the British Army in B Company, serving in both India and the Middle East, he was killed in Mesopotamia during WW1,
I believe he was a Captain. Walter was in the Ireland in the Home Service
and Alfred was in the Near East during WW1.
Any help in researching this family would be wonderful.
