Reginald Fordham (1885-) from South Australia

introduction

  • Reginald Edward FORDHAM (1885-) of Lower Mitcham and his wife Alice Bertha Mildred GRAFTON (1884-) of Kent Town do not appear to be related to me but somehow their wedding photo of 9th September 1911 in Adelaide which was given to a “Harry” by Allie, has made it's way into my mother's collection, presumably from my grandmother's Hutchesson links.
  • information from his great granddaughter who is writing a novel about Alice:
    • Reginald was grand Poobah of two Masonic lodges
    • Prior to marrying Reggie, Alice travelled to England to study Music/singing under a famous English contralto Dame Clara Butt. She was a renowned recitalist and concert singer.
  • the information below has been gleaned from internet searches.
  • Alice Bertha Mildred GRAFTON (1884-) was daughter of William Marshall GRAFTON and Emily Maria STONEHAM who had married 13 JAN 1875 in St Paul's Church Adelaide
