  • Bonnie Johanna Jane Snelson (b. 4 November 1987)

Main Events

  • Name: Georgina Elizabeth ("Ferraby") Slee was also known as Gina Slee.
  • Name: She was also known as Georgina Elizabeth Slee.
  • Name: She was also known as Georgina Elizabeth Snelson.
  • Reference Number: She was originally assigned a reference number in ROOTS III back in 1989 - it is recorded here for original document retrieval and identification purposes only FERRGE53.
  • Birth: She was born on 1 March 1953 in Soham.
  • Namechange:

    There was a Namechange by deed poll on 31 August 1960 from Georgina Elizabeth Slee to Georgina Elizabeth Ferraby ... she may have been named Georgina after her father. I understand that the name change was effected so that all the children had the same surname, Ferraby.

    I believe that Joan Ferraby never actually married George Slee, as he was already married and not divorced until circa 1972 from Mary Hawken, and Joan may still have been married to Robert Douglas Ferraby when Bill and Gina were born.

    I think though that she was known as, and called herself Joan Slee - as that's what the Deed Poll says ... "known as Joan Slee". It does not say that this was a registered married name.

    If Mary Hawken did not agree to divorce George Slee until the '70s, it is hard to see how Joan could be married to him - I guess she could have had her name changed legally, perhaps by a prior Deed Poll, to Slee so as to appear to be married to him.

    After all this time, let it all fall where it may, as it does not matter any more, as we can see the relationships and there are no doubts about them and the main parties to these affairs are dead and gone. I have corresponded with Professor Peter Slee and we are in agreement.

    However, the Hawken, Slee, Ferraby and Snelson children might like to know about their half brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles and cousins.
