1920. Edith E Newman, 23, married George H Archer 23, company director, on 20/2/1920 in St Catherines, Hatcham.-Greenwich Mar1920 . Interestingly it gives her father, James, as a seaman

1922. Pamela M Archer was born Holbeach Dec 1922. She married William C (known as Bill) Andrews in Staines Mar 1942. She had a daughter Judy - in touch with Margaret

Until she was about 11, so up to about 1932,Pamela thought he was her brother:- they were so close. But unlikely that George continued living in the Archer household much beyond 1928 as Hazel, in 2021, aged 94, is adamant that he never lived with her parents!!
