Would be interested to hear from anyone who knows anything about this HANSEN family with links to Herning, Jutland and to Vejle.
My great aunt was Edith Godfrey BRADLEY, b. 1892 Lancashire UK. Her parents were Anthony BRADLEY and Mary Ann (nee MURPHY). In the 1901 England census Edith was aged 9 and living at 18 Gladstone Road, West Derby, Liverpool. She had 3 siblings, Alice, Thomas and James.
Edith married Valdemar HANSEN on 15 Apr 1915 in Cardiff, Wales. Valdemar HANSEN was b. abt 1894 and was a Marconi ship radio operator. His father in turn was also called Valdemar and was a railway inspector (in Denmark).
Edith and Valdemar HANSEN had two children, a son James William HANSEN (would this be Jakob Vilhelm in Danish?) and a daughter Valborg Dagmar HANSEN. Valborg Dagmar was born 18 Jul 1916 in West Derby Lancashire England but died in 1924. The family returned to live in Denmark but divorced and Edith returned to England. James and his father stayed in Denmark and went on to become a captain in the Danish navy. Edith remarried in England to Robert John HADDOCK. She was widowed in 1950 and died in 1979. In her Will dated 1977 she left her estate to both her some James William HANSEN but also named her grandson Paul Gulberg HANSEN and gave addresses in Denmark.
If anyone knows anything about this HANSEN family please get in touch thanks.
