MAY, WISE, PERKINS in Melbourne

Hi. I would appreciate any info on these people. Arthur Horace WISE (my grandfather) born at Hoddle Street, Collingwood, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on 29 May 1902 and his parents Robert WISE and Alice Mary MAY. Arthur was a famous jockey during the 1920s, coming third in the 1920 Melbourne Cup on Queen Comedy. He resided earlier in Caulfield, living later in St. Kilda with his wife Gwendolyn (ne DAVIS). Any info on his mother, Alice Mary MAY born around 1880 of Collingwood, Victoria, Australia, would be appreciated. She was married to Charles PERKINS but later had additional children with Robert WISE although she was not married to him. Cheers
Belinda Turvey
