Jack’s children
« on: November 27, 2019, 01:07:44 PM »
I notice that Jack’s children both died in their forties. Did they die from lung related issues as many of the Llewelyn Davies family did? What descendants still survive today?

I'm not sure what Timothy LD died from but his sister Sylvia died in 1969 of breast cancer. Timothy didn't have any children but Sylvia had one daughter, Henrietta (born 1954), who died in 2011. Henrietta's death was either suicide or drug overdose.

Does anyone know who Sylvia married? I'm trying to tie up this branch of the family tree.

Thanks

Sylvia (Jack's daughter) never married. She raised Henrietta as a single mother, working in advertising (she came up with the slogan “Cheese Please, Louise”). According to Henrietta, her (unnamed) father was in the Guinness Book of Records as 'Britain's Most Married Man': he married seven times but never married her mother, who came between numbers 3 and 4.

Sorry to be a pain, Brutus, but do you know the name of this "most married man"?

I'm afraid not.. I tried to look up the Guinness Book of Records on Google, but could only see the most recent "most married man" - and it obviously wasn't him!

Thanks, Brutus.

I'll do some digging and see what I can come up with. I will keep the forum posted if I find anything.

I remember Nico's daughter Laura telling me that Timothy - who completely vanished from his parents' lives in the 1950s - in fact had two children, I think both boys, but where or when I know not ...  sleuth on!

I stand corrected - I had no idea that Timothy had children. He died in Canada in 1965 so it's fair to assume the children are Canadians.

I found the obituary of Timothy Llewelyn Davies’ wife Mary Llewelyn Davies, who died in 2013, and according to that they had no children. It also doesn’t say that she was a step-mother to anyone either in case Timothy had children with another woman. So I don’t think Timothy had any children.

Here’s the link to the obituary:
