Sheila Ellen (née Oates) married Kenneth Purves Dewar (DOB 18/7/??) in India (died in Perth 11/9/1951) and they had three children - Aubrey Dewar (deceased) Ellen Louise (née Dewar) married Michael John Howlett (both deceased) and Robin Purves Dewar (DOB 9/12/1936 - deceased 8/6/2002). Kenneth Purves Dewar's maternal line married into the family line of Edwin Hume (Earl of?) and their maiden name was Purves -so that name was carried down through his family by giving it to the boys as a middle name. Hence, my husband's name was Robin Purves Dewar and his father was Kenneth Purves Dewar. All three of Sheila and K P Dewar's children were born in India - Robin was born in Bangalore. This is as much as I can remember at the moment.
