The Family of Eileen Fell

  • Eileen Mary Fell was a first cousin of my paternal grandmother, Marjorie Fell Faulder (née Lendrum). Her mother Elizabeth Fell was a sister of Eileen’s father Henry Fell.
  • Eileen was shown by Marjorie Fell Faulder (in her notes) to have married a Paul Cuthbert Petrie, but I could not find a reference to this marriage.
  • I could however find a reference to a marriage to a Steinthal – but not to his death.
  • It turns out that Paul Steinthal had changed his name during WW1 to Petrie (his mother’s maiden name).
  • Searching through on-line sources such as the London Gazette and the London Times plus being provided with photographs of a family memorial helped identify Eileen’s descendants and their immediate cousins.
