In 1911 Anne Isabella Turner and Ellen Turner were living at The Oaks, St John's Park, Ryde.
Anne Isabella Turner married Hubert Garle in 1923.
Anne Isabella Garle (née Turner) died in Ryde in 1942 aged 72 years.
Ellen Turner died in Ryde in 1943 aged 69.
E.A.M. is Anne and Ellen's sister Edith Lynda whose second husband was called Allen-Maddy.
These ladies were great-grandaughters of James Forbes of Kingairloch, Scotland and Hutton Hall,
Essex (1756-1829), and the daughters of Arthur Holden (see Memorial plaque at
Ryde : St John's Church
). There are a few more IoW connections which may be of interest.
James Forbes married twice and had two daughters from the first marriage. One was Maria Isabella
who married Maj. Gen. David Forbes and among their eight children was Charles Forbes who appears to
have retired to the Isle of Wight after a career in India. He died 28 Fecember 1892 and lived at the Castle,
Ryde. His wife Mary followed three months later. Incidentally, Charles's first cousin
Charlotte was the wife of the Prime Minister Sir Henry Campbell Bannerman.
James had eleven children from his second marriage. Among them was a daughter Sarah who married
Rear-Admiral Edward Richard Williams. Their daughter Sarah married Arthur Holden Turner and they
are the parents of Anne Isabella, Edith Lynda, and Ellen. Edith Lynda was baptised at All Saints,
Ryde on 5 October 1870. Sarah Forbes had a brother William and among his seven children was a
daughter Magdalen who married Charles Irwin Williams. They had three children apparently
among whom was a daughter Dorothy Geraldine Forbes Williams. I believe she was born in Canada in
February 1893 but she died on the Isle of Wight in the last quarter of 1993. I believe that she had
a sister Olive and probably a brother.
Other descendants of James Forbes settled in Southsea.
