Some of you will know a little of the 'Naughty Nina Saga' - the story of my maternal grandmother. Well her first marriage (on Christmas Day) was to a guy called Charles Newcombe who was born in Clapham, Surrey, London in 1890. He shows in the census' of 1891 - father Frederick Newcombe - but after the wedding there is literally no trace of him. He has NO middle name.
Here is a link to the marriage certificate....
Can anyone shed any light on where he might have got to? I know that the Edmeds had links, via the British army, with Canada - I'm wondering if the Newcombes were thre same?
