This may be the same naturalization record as I saw somewhere else, with James as father:


Ancestry - US Naturalization Records index 1791-1992
Hermann Johannes Von Eckh
Los Angeles California 1945

or maybe in this database?

Ancestry - California, Federal Naturalization Records, 1887-1991

but I don't have a US sub to view this.

and the index record doesn't give father's name.

But there is a public tree on ancestry showing James as his father - is that where you got it from?

These two entries may be connected with Lucy:


Births Mar 1869
Von Eyck Agnes Warwick 6d 540


Deaths Mar 1870
Von Eyck Alma Helena M 15 Warwick 6d 372

Here is Agnes with her mother and a lot of siblings in 1871. I would imagine Lucy is another sibling not yet born:

Reverson - if you don't have an ancestry sub I will transcribe that census, but this keyboard doesn't have a properly functioning spacebar and I may go crazy before I reach the end of the transcript, so will wait to see if you
have a sub first!

I wouldn't have thought so, Kate as I wouldn't have taken much notice of that normally, but I can't say definitely not.

Thank you for the information. I'm new to this so I'm not sure where to look etc. This is the information I have so far:
My mother is Julia Nina Reverson born 31st August 1908. She had two sisters - Phyllis Blanche (born 10th June 1907) and Brenda Audrey (born 7th Dec 1909).
Phyllis did marry Stanley Fordham but the name in the register is incorrectly written as 'Reversoin' and she later married Reginald Musgrave.
My grandmother is Emily Swan. My mother's birth certificate says 'mother - Emily Reverson formerly Swan, father James Reverson Sewing Machine Companys Manager'. The address on the certificate is 90 Priory Park Rd, Willesden.
Emily subsequently married (?) Ernest Simmons with whom she had 2 sons - Jack born August 1912 & Victor born 1914. Ernest Simmons already had 2 sons (Bert and Leslie (b 1907). So James is no longer part of her life by then. That's where the mystery comes in. My Aunt Phyllis used to tell us that he went back to Russia and died in a fire, but my mother and Aunt Bren never confirmed this.
My mother, Julia Nina,is the only Reverson registered birth I can find between the years 1864-1914. Emily died in 1934, registered as Emily Simmons.
I have some other information which I'd like to share privately. Need to find out how I do this!

A certain amount depends on where your ancestors come from as to which sub(s) might be the most helpful. For the time being we can try and help you make the right start as (on the face of things!) this part of your tree is quite complicated.

Do you have your mother's birth and marriage certificates?

Ah, so post #19 where I found Phyllis as a grandchild is with the family with Swan connections is a good link.

You are going to need this all typed out though aren't you? it would be quicker for me to do that on another computer before I have a breakdown (lol), but that will have to be a bit later on today.

Do you have the birth cert for Brenda? (just because this is the nearest to the 1911 census)
