The four trees all say Julia married Clark unknown. I am a descendant of the Clark family. Probably your searches have been hampered because in our family her names have been wrongly spelt. In 1910 Julia married William Troward Clark. He was the eldest son of William Clark, miller of Eastry. In 1889 he emigrated to the USA, marrried Ella Gray Taliaferro, settled eventually in Richmond, VA.; they had one daughter, Elizabeth. Ella died in 1906, Elizabeth died in 1989 . . . I visited her there back in 1978 . . . and have visited her daughter Betty several times. Troward as he was usually known in the family came back to England in 1910 to visit his family; Elizabeth was greatly upset to find that a step-mother was on the agenda and never really accepted her. Julia married Troward . . . but I can't find out where. They returned to Richmond and you can find them in the 1920 and 1930 Census records. They had no children. Julia died March 9, 1933. They also visited England again in 1922; there was a big family party and the photo taken includes Oliff as the family always knew her. The other interesting fact is that Troward's brother Walter had the larger of Eastry's two grocery stores, his brother Ernest a bakery . . . so the Clarks and Wyborn's were serious competitors.

Regards, Stan. I live in Canada now but will be back in Eastry at Easter.
