Hi, this time I'm looking for the sister and niece of my previous FULLAGAR post. Florrie/Florie Maud/Maude FULLAGAR married Richard William PENNEFATHER in Perth WA on 7/10/1897, he was a QC and member of the WA Parliament, they had one child, a daughter, Irene Sylvia/Silvia PENNEFATHER who may have changed her name to Renee for some reason. Richard William PENNEFATHER died while a serving member of Parliament in 1914 and according to a Newspaper report left his family in "straitened circumstances". I can track Florie Maud PENNEFATHER until at least 1918 when she is running a B & B in her home at Cottesloe WA, and she may appear on the 1925 WA Electoral Role, but after that there is nothing. Apart from that death there are no other BDMs that I can find in OZ. I have been given a record of a marriage in the UK for Renee PENNEFATHER known as GILL in 1931 to Thomas H CHILD at Lymington UK. T think because Florrie's sister, Lily VANZETTI ended up in the UK, Florrie and her daughter may also have. Cheers, Sue.
