Note

It is not clear when, but Florence and William either divorced or William died at which time Florence moved to Sydney (Burton St. Glebe) and then married or lived with someone by the name of Townsend. She went by the name Florence Townsend but there is no record of a marriage. They had a daughter: Edna Mavis (born: ???; married Clifford George Shepherd in 1936; divorced??) and had a child Robyn; Edna Mavis (married William Charles Murchie in 1943) and had a child, Alan. I don’t know when Florence died but do know that she was still alive in 1956 when my brother Wesbrook was born. (source: Deborah Stevenson nee Smythe)
