  • Birth 1883? Edward Tilbury

The Tilbury Family Bible records Edward (Ted) Tilbury's birth as 5 Feb 1883 at 10 Forest View, Southampton. His birth certificate is an incomplete photocopy of an extract but it shows the birth was registered by his father six years later on 4 Mar 1889. In the intervening years the family had moved from 10 Forest View to 6 Forest View.

Edward and Geneviève lived in France and all their children were born and raised there. It appears that son Robert and French wife Monique moved to the USA some time between 1949 and 1958.

    I have found a record of his death in a parish register in Prague - St. Stephen's Church (kostel sv. Štěpána). The register is stored in AHMP (Prague City Archive) under signature ŠT Z17 and the record is on page 73. See digitized image on http://katalog.ahmp.cz/pragapublica/permalink?xid=041D4FEA9D194A31932973984AD66A5A&scan=82#scan82

    Good luck in building your family tree!
