10th: Turnbull twigs again

Confirmation received that Douglas Maes TURNBULL did indeed marry Madeline Hilda IZON in Hartford, Northwich, Chester, in 1914.
Didn't have a great deal of success with any subsequent sightings, other than a possibility of her being the Mrs Douglas TURNBULL arriving back into the UK from Montreal, with 3 yr old son Eric, UK address being Hempstead, Herts, future inteded residence "foreign".
Thought a name like IZON, father John Parnell IZON, might be reasonably easy to trace back a little way out of curiousity, but there are rather too many of the latter around for any certainty of identification.

30th: TURNBULL twigs

Prompted by Karen's STEPHENSON letters I realised I'd not looked for the more modern day twigs of the TURNBULL family in the 1911 census.
Only had partial success with that, but did obtain several sightings of Sir Robert's son Noel and wife Ivy Florence on assorted passenger lists travelling to/from Marseilles, Madiera and England over the years (and finally found Ivy's surname - Burborough).
Have not yet determined whether or not Robert's brother Walter Maes TURNBULL's family has any surviving descendants but should shortly know whether or not Walter's son Douglas Maes TURNBULL is the Douglas marrying a Madeline Hilda IZON in 1914 or not.
