My mother was Georgina Quin, born 21-01-1916 1n Eshowe, South Africa. Her father was George Frederick Quin, born, I believe, about 1881, maybe in Ireland and mother was Ella Johnson Ball, born 1893 in Salcombe, Devon, England. Mum had A sister, Muriel Constance, born 1913 in Bloemfontein and a Brother, George Wyndham, born about 1920. on Mother's birth certificate it states father's occupation as Mechanic. On a trip back to England in 1914 he was described as Chauffeur. I remember as a child being shown his commission in the army and medals, but I am not sure of his regiment. As far as I know, George Frederick died, of Blackwater fever, in 1920 in South Africa and the family moved back to Salcombe in 1926.

On my aunt Muriel's birth certificate a previous marriage to a lady by the name of Mansergh is mentioned with one male and one female child. I have not been able to trace this marriage. I have since found out that the lady's name was Dora Christine Mansergh.

All efforts to trace George Frederick's birth and Army service records have met with uncertain results and I would appreciate any information which may be posted here.

Later research has revealed that George Frederick's Father was Captain George Quin, Who built Leopardstown Race Course in Dublin but I still have no record of his birth or his mother.
