Hi Everybody. I'm hoping there may be Winter family members on this forum who have info on this branch of the family.
Clara Elvira Winter (nèe King) was my great aunt - she was born in British Guiana in 1861 and married John Winter 1850 - 1885 (son of Frederick Augustus Rothwell Winter of St John's, Newfoundland). I found her name and will mentioned in Newfoundland Grand Banks through a Google search, but was unable to locate the reference once in the site. I did look in the Hampshire, England wills section as that is where she died in 1939 but couldn't find her.
I ask because I'm researching the King/Winter family and wills/probate have been a rich source for finding new cousins and family links. We have found mentions of Vaughan and Farrar cousins through these links. British Guiana/Guyana is a difficult country to research as the old colonial records have mostly been destroyed by fire or are inaccessible. None of Clara's 3 children, Mabel Marion, William and John Rothwell married or had children, so sadly the line stops there. Neither Clara's nor John Rothwell's wills are available through the UK Find a Will service.
I also understand that James Winter of Newfoundland originally came from Devon, England - which is nicely circular as that's where I have lived for 40 years.
Any information would be gratefully received.
Harriet Helliwell nèe King
