Margaret Chandler 1822-1915

By Johan Alferink

I'm researching the life of a Margaret Chandler formally Shebbeare nee Whicher. Margaret was born in Petersfield, Hampshire 21/5/1822 and died in Brighton 23/3/1915. Her parents were James and Anna Whicher. Around 1904 Margaret moved to Brighton and was living with her nieces, Blanche and Laura Peskett at No 1 Clermont Rd. Margaret is buried in the  Brighton and Preston Cemetery (Grave No.M323).                                                                                

My interest in Margaret is that the town/district of Margaret River in Western Australia where I live is named after her.

I would dearly love to find a photo of her and so far have had no success and therefore I'm hoping there is a chance that maybe someone has a photo in their collection.

If you have any queries please don't hesitate to ask

Thanking you,

Johan Alferink
