DECK AND WINKWORTH/ St Leonards and Ipswich
Florence Matilda Deck married John Winkworth of 5 Jupiter Road, Ipswich, in 1913. John Winkworth died in 1922 but I can’t determine the fate of Florence Matilda, either as Deck or Winkworth.
Florence Matilda Davis had married Edward James Deck in Edmonton, Middlesex, in 1897. He was a surgeon born 1873 in Hartismere, Suffolk. While living at St Leonards, Sussex, until at least 1902, they had two children, Philip Ronald and Edward Dalralph Deck, who subsequently described their mother as Mrs J Winkworth. However, Edward James Deck apparently remarried abroad in 1914 but I can’t find him in any shipping records. I’d like to know when he sailed and what happened. John Grimsey, by email
