Where she lived

"Free Births Marriages and Deaths" says that Violet Alice Geddes' birth was registered in Kensington, London, England, in Registration Quarter: Jul-Aug-Sep. Her father died in Belfast in 1888, but I don't know if the family were leaving there. The family must have moved to Portsmouth by 1889 (see account of her sister swimming). She must have met Frederick Lewis Dibblee there, and they got married there in 1903. The couple moved to Malta, where Frederick was an Intelligence Officer, with their oldest child, Margaret. David was born there, and they returned to England, where their youngest son was born at Southsea. Later, they moved to Sherborne (see photos of houses). Frederick died in 1937. Violet at some point went to live with her daughter-in-law Doris Dibblee, in Harrogate. I saw her there when I was a young child.
