Walton Windle

Post by Tomtom » 13 Jan 2020, 23:03

I have relatives in the States who are trying to discover what happened to Fred Windle, son of Walton Windle, born in Barnoldswick in 1889.
He married a Brenda E. Sellars in 1922. They eventually had 5 children and moved to Blackpool. I’ve tracked Fred to 1930 as a Building Contractor in Blackpool but he disappears after that. His wife and the 4 youngest children subsequently emigrated to the US in 1940.
On the 1939 Register his wife describes herself as married not widowed.
None of his children seemed to want to talk about him if the subject came up. His eldest child, Stuart Walton Windle, born 1924, is stated to be living in Halifax, UK in 1945. He emigrates and joins his family in the US in 1947.
Any help or ideas on where to look to solve the mystery of Fred would be most welcome.

Welcome to the site Tom. I can't help directly but we have looked at Windles before. I have reposted the Windle Index entries.
