Bertie Richard KERR from Tasmania Australia

Post by Helen Webster » Sun Jul 20, 2008 2:13 am

Good morning
I have just found Bertie's WW1 papers at the Australian National Archives in which he states that on his discharge from the Army he was going to be married in Sutton Veny. But....I haven't been able to find out if he married or not. I also found a photograph of his grave at St John the Evangalist Church (a bush obscured his death date!! - which I think was the 7/11/1958). Could someone help me out with this family (if there are still Kerr family in Sutton Veny of course!).

Bertie's grandfather - William Kerr - was also my 3 x great grandfather and I am researching the Kerr family and their associated families and I would like to know what happened to Bertie and his English family.

May 2009 - Still looking for family of Bertie. He may have married a Violet Pretoria PEARCE in Southdown, Wilshire - her father being Frederick Pearce and mother Emma Meadun.

Thanking you
