Walter Robert Young

Walter was born 1859 in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire to Robert and Mary Ann Young. He married Sarah Ann Holland in Tewkesbury in 1884. Children were Margaret 1885, Richard 1887 & Walter Ernest 1889. It is around the time of Walter Ernest birth that Walter Robert disappears from the scene. By the time of the 1891 census, Sarah Ann has become the head of the household and left to look after three young children and an ailing grocery business. Walter Robert is not found on the 1891, 1901 & 1911 census.

A family story suggests that he left for Australia, although this has yet to be proven. If anyone can cast light on these matters, then we would love to hear from them. Thank You Mike Everley
