this email refers
to all the information above
Arthur Knowles ...... Mary Alice
Peek ...... John Charles Tucker ...... Sarah Kent
As I mentioned in the recent "The Family Historys Update"
email, I want to concentrate on the Knowles side of things for
I was going through my copies of the information you brought
up here and came across this ...
Looking at 'Page 1' of the Peek Family Tree,
there are some handwritten notes (they yours ??) and they state
that after Arthur died early at fourty-two, Mary then married
John Tucker who had been married to Sarah

... Friday 6th August 2010
However, there are a few question marks near the word "remarried"
There is also a few notes on a small piece of paper which I think
you said were yours and these also say the same thing
Did I interpret it right ??
The reason I am asking is that I can find lots of details on
a John Charles Tucker and these include his death notices and
To check out the page, have a look HERE
(this is the Tucker Page shown above)
BUT they do not mention Mary nor is there any mention of their
marriage after Sarah's death which was during September 1910
When he died on the 8th June 1938 he was living at 2 Dudley Ave
Prospect South Australia
Can you add anything more ??
Also, the notes about the "$10.00 and $10000.00 inheritances"
look sorta interesting !!
Any more info on that ??
Thanks for your help ... time consuming this Family History stuff
is, but it's fun doing it !!
Geoff to John and Julie Tucker ... Friday 13th August 2010
Grandpa Tuckers four daughters received quite a lot more
than Audrey, Laurel and Norma
Aunty Norma said it was £10,000 to them and £10 to
the Knowles girls
Brenton Adcock son
Clarrie Adcock father
Arthur Adcock grandfather and Margary Tucker his wife was one
of the four daughters
John Charles Tucker
Harry Clive father
Mary Alice Tucker nee Knowles nee Peek mother
So the Knowles girls were a generation removed from the Tucker
daughters ... they would have been John Charles Tuckers
Does this make any sense ??
Do we know when Mary Alice Tucker died ??
Good luck ... Lesley

?? can anyone send me information
or details on this elusive Mr Tucker ??
Hello to y'all
Lesley and I have been a'searching and a'searching for some information
mentioned in this Section
Which part ?? ... well, here is the question ...
Anything at all that you have would be great
... name, birth and marriage and death dates, etc

I was speaking to Auntie Norma today and I
asked her about the 'Tucker Connection'
Lesley to Geoff
... Tuesday 7th September 2010
She said she only ever knew 'Mary Alice' as Grandma Tucker and
that Grandpa Tucker had lots of money
She didnt think living in sin was what they
would have done !!
So somewhere there must be a record of their marriage !!
Cheers ... Lesley
note from Geoff
... Wednesday 8th September 2010
Grandma Mary Alice Knowles was married to Mr Tucker between 1910
It has to be in this time frame because ...
#1 - Gertrude and Clive gave them a Carnival Glass Fruit Bowl
as a wedding gift
#2 - Gertrude and Clive were married in 1910 and Clive died in
It was returned to Gertrude after Grandma Tucker died and Lyn
now has it
Auntie Norma just rang with this info
On the 'John Chalres Tucker' page above it
states that he was buried in Kybunga Cemetery, which is near
Clare in South Australia
TUCKER Sarah and John C
I checked the cemetery details HERE
and found this listing ...
Now it is becoming a bit strange !!
note from Sharon to Lesley ... Saturday 11th September 2010
This Mr Tucker was married to Sarah ... okay, she died in 1910
and Mr Tucker married again ... would he, when he died, ask to
be buried with his first wife ??
Well, maybe ... but as I said, things are turning strange ...
and I am starting to think that the handwritten notes on the
pages above may not be accurate ??
Back to more searching now !! ... and will probably start looking
for a different Mr Tucker
Looking for Mr Tucker ... it's the thrill
of the search isn't it !!
Wally Knowles to Geoff ... Wednesday 5th December 2012
I saw that the Adcock Family is mentioned in the 'John Charles
Tucker' page above
Lesley, are there some Adcocks around that may have an idea about
the Peeks ??
I seem to remember you or Mother saying something about us being
related to the "Peeks / Adcocks" when we starting attending
Knightsbridge Baptist Church
Have solved the problem of Mary Alice Knowles
marrying John Charles Tucker
Geoff to Wally
... Wednesday 5th December 2012
This wedding happened on 9th September 1918 at Maughan Church
Mary was fifty five years old at this time
John's previous wife, Sarah, died on 21st September 1910
They had married on 12th December 1876
I also found the date of Mary's death and this was on 17th June
She was sixty four years of age
This information came from the excellent Genealogy Club at the
Have a good day
That "Genealogy Club" sounds like
a Fantastic Place !!
circa 1870 ... View of Adelaide
looking west down Franklin Street
I did a bit of searching and found these photos of the Maughan
In the left foreground can be seen the Methodist New Connexion
This was later the Maughan Methodist Church (demolished in 1964)
Wally Knowles to Geoff ... Tuesday 9th April 2013
John and Mary married during 1918
The shot opposite is circa 1915
Not much has changed from the earlier shots
and it is very similar to the one above from 1896
(maybe the dates are not quite right !!)
Just a little note to clear things up
When I gave you the info on Mr Tucker you said what a "fantastic
place" the local Genealogy Club was
Actually, it more or less doesn't exist any more
They've shifted to Salisbury now and kept asking me to come and
give them lectures as I had during the past
Because of my health, I knocked them back so many times they've
given up now
But their facilities are still in the Elizabeth Library and being
an ex-volunteer I know how to use them, which I do frequently
So there !!
