Ada May Hulme (1884 – 1965)

My Hulme ancestors  have been traced back to St Pancras, Middlesex, England in the early 1800s.

My maternal great grandmother, Ada May Hulme, was born at Oxley, Victoria on the 10th of May 1884 to parents Joseph Hulme and Anna Dorothea Bartsh.

Ada married William Thomas Morgan in 1905.  Their daughter Daisy Marion was my maternal grandmother.


Great grandma and great grand dad  Ada and Bill Morgan had five children and seventeen grandchildren.

  1. Clarice May (nickname Tod) 1905 – 1998
  2. Daisy Marion (nickname Billy) 1908 – 1998
  3. Ellen Mavis (nickname Bobby) 1910 – 1981
  4. Lila Elaine (nickname Johnny) 1913 – 1990
  5.  and finally the much wanted boy! Herbert William (nickname Bert of course) 1926 – 1971
