PARKER/RAIL

I am trying to trace the daughter of Dr George Roger Parker and her descendents. Mary Audrey Parker (b.1889) married Dr William Rail and moved to Rhodesia from Lancaster in the early 1900's. I have a letter from her to my mother dated 31 Aug 1969 Grove Road Greendale Rhodesia. I also have some photos from a trip back to England around 1919-20 where one of their sons was born. Mary Audrey would have been my Great Aunt.If anyone has any information on any of her children or grandchildren I would be grateful.

My tree is public under Brown/Bradbear/Hiscox/Parker. This is what I have
William Arthur Rail born Sydney 1886 N.S.W. Married Mary Audrey Parker from Lancaster and moved to Rhodesia. Children as per letter of 1969
James Rail b. 1914 (55) living in Capetown,
Peter Rail b. 1915 (54) living in Casino NSW is a Consultant physcian,
Margaret b. 1917 (52)living in Salibury Rhodesia
Roger b 1923 (46)and "very sick with a thrombosis in an artery in the brain living in Yumba mountains"
I think Roger is the only one not born in Africa
They would all be pretty old by now though.
I will take a look and see if I can find the trees you mention

I had a look at the 2 family trees but they don't come any further down the line Just william Arthurs name and birth date with no more info after that about him. I was really trying to find any descendents of Mary Audrey Rail nee Parker because I need more information about her mother and I thought the offspring could help me out as Ancestry can only go so far and then her mother (my great grandmother)is lost.

Are you looking for Mary Audrey's ancestors or descendants?Uk census and BMD will take you back to 1837.

I have posted a question on her before about her mother Emily Eliza Parker nee JARVIS but the answers were not quite right.I have Mary Audrey's father side of the family back quite a way but her mother is a bit of a mystery as she only appears when she was baptised as an adult two months before she was married in London.Her marriage certificate shows a father with different name to hers ( George Draper)and he is deceased, and then a marriage note in the Lancaster times shows her as the ONLY child of E Jarvis Esquire. The address on the marriage certificate says she is the daughter of Betsy Jarvis (widow) and she has two much younger siblings and living in a funded property, whatever that means. So I thought if I could find the descendents of Mary Audrey then perhaps they would have more information about her as she is their Grandmother and maybe their mother Mary Audrey told them about her
Anyway I am trying but have had little or should I say no success.

"...Mary Audrey would have been my Great Aunt."

Your great grandmother/father is a sister/brother of Mary Audrey?

Do you have that person's birth/marriage/death certificates?

What information do you get about parents of your great grandparent from those sources?.

My mother was her niece also named Mary Audrey Parker,just to confuse things.
Mary Audrey Rail nee Parker father was Dr George Roger Parker,his father James Parker and mother Elizabeth Walker, I can actually go back about three more generations. I have birth , marriage and death certs for my Great grandfather Dr George but the difficulty I am having is actually with my Great Aunts mother, my great grandmother. I have asked for help for her but have had all kinds of trouble as she does not appear anywhere on any records until about two months before she married my G.Grandfather and there is all kinds of conflicting info so I thought if I could locate any of Mary Audrey's offspring and or their children then they might have more news as my Aunt may have told them about her mother. All relatives on my line that I could ask have died so that's a little difficult for fact finding.Pays to do research when we are younger I guess.
