The Bertha (DAWES) TAMPKIN Line

Bertha was born to Thomas DAWES and Sarah BOXALL on 22 April 1871. Bertha married Charles TAMPKIN (1870-1657) in Brighton on the 15 Sept. 1892 and they had two sons, Charles b. 27 June 1895 and Sydney b. 29 Oct. 1899 who both served in WWI.

Bertha died of cancer in 1921 at the age of 41 and Charles re-married a Violet BROWN in 1930.

Charles Jr. went on to marry Dorothy Mable CLARK (1896-1960) and they had two daughters who had families that I am in touch with today.

Sydney went on to marry Alfreda May FRY (no dates) and also had two daughters, Barbara (1927-1977) and Norma (1931-1978). Norma never married but Barbara married a Canadian serviceman, Haig MONTGOMERY (1919-1981), whom she met during WWII and moved to Canada where she had four children.
