|The Fleuss History|
Katherine Edith Levine Fleuss
There were 8 children born to Henry Otto FLEUSS, seven married and 6 of these were girls
One of which was:
Katherine Edith Levine Fleuss
Born on 02 Feb 1872 at 285 Vauxhall Bridge Road, daughter of Henry Otto Fleuss
Married Frank Herbert Wilson in 2nd quarter of 1895 at St Saviour's Southwark
It seems that she had two children by Frank, Joan and Margaret. Margaret was born about 1897 in Brixton and life and the story became fantastic. She later hand another daughter Cecilia.
Rumour has it the Katherine left the family to to go to the continent when Cecilia was about 12 years old leaving Frank to bring up two girls on his own.
This maybe supported by Census records:
We have record of one Grandchild - Celia Allen
Katherine Edith was the eldest of the children and seemed to live the
most complicated of lives.
It seems that Katherine Edith ran off with a Count either Russian or Austrian maybe then the daughter Cecilia and later somehow had a couple of twins Beryl and June.
It is reported by her granddaughter, Celia, that Frank Wilson, noted as a clerk in the 1901 and 1911 censuses, brought up all five children but up to now there is no census after 1911 yet to give confirmation.
It is reported that Betty Perrier, daughter of Margaret Perrier nee Wilson, one of Katherine Edith's daughters, remembers seeing her in about 1923.
There is also a rumour probably from the Guise family, that Frank Wilson had been in prison for fraud.
The notes from Richard Stenning try to piece together
details of Katherine Edith's children and there is a page which he had
corrected by another member of the family, however there is some confusion
surrounding Cecilia whom he thought to be called Celia. Sadly he did not
have the benefit of meeting or contacting K.Edith's granddaughter.
Richard was not aware of Joan but some detail is available from Celia.
daughter of Katherine Edith
No details other than those referred in the notes above and the summary
June and Beryl
twins of Katherine Edith
Margaret Wilson (also known as Peggy)
married in 1916 Raymond Perrier
There are a couple of fascinating marriages shown above which warrant further research work.
Betty Perrier seems to have married a Benjamin
Wilson, the surname being her Mother's maiden name
but much more significantly if it is correct:
Doreen M Perrier married Paul Frankland, the son of her great aunt Audrey Mary Fleuss married to Charles Arthur Frankland.
See the photo of the wedding of Tony Guise.
There is one anomaly that comes out of the records that should be noted. The general view is that Raymond Perrier and his wife Margaret nee Wilson had only 4 children however there is a birth record that suggests that a Perrier and Wilson had a child in Somerset called Margaret. Without more detailed research, the relevance of this cannot be established so the issue is left noted but open for the moment.
In the archive are copies of 3 sheets with some details from Richard Stenning regarding the Wilson family.
There is reference to Margaret Sara Beatrice who married a Mr Perrier and was on the stage with Vera Guise !! Apparently she killed herself over some stage death - she worked for ?British Gaumart? who looked after children's education
