     Delfina or Delphener or Delphfenia Honor was born 8 September 1869 in Methwold, West Norfolk
     [but I have yet to find her birth registration in the G.R.O. Indexes!]

     She was the 11th child and 2nd daughter of Emmanuel & Susannah.

     Delphfenia Honor PALMER was married to Albert William HAYLETT at St. Augustine's Church, Wisbech,
     Cambridgeshire, on 28 February 1896.

Angelo Leonard McCleod born 1901 Died 1902
Delphfeina Irene Vera born 1907 March Qtr Wisbech, Cambridgeshire
In Mary TEED's Bible, spelt Delphenia Honor & Delphener. 1881 U.K. Census - spelt "Delphener" ; aged 11, at Methwold, Norfolk. 1891 U.K. Census - spelt Delphinier; living with her widowed mother, Susannah at 21 Queen St, Wisbech. 1901 U.K. Census - see below for spelling! 1910 - on her headstone at Mount Pleasant - spelt Delphenia Honor but in Burial register, spelt "Delphfenia" So where does "Delfina" come from? [Mum's spelling?] From Unather D. Palmer, Tasmania, to Jean Matthews, 11 November, 1983 - "When Aunt Delphenia died - the children were left orphans as her husband took off with another woman. Archie lived with Uncle Angelo; Arundel went into the Poor Law Institution (Workhouse) as he also suffered from fits; Cyril went away to Ipswich to work in a nursery and eventually had one of his own, coming back to live in a caravan at Vera's on the South Brink, and died there. Vera lived with [Uncle Louis &] Aunt Kate before marriage." At the time of the 1901 U.K. Census, Delphfenia, although married, is with her mother, Susannah PALMER,in Queen Street, Wisbech, with her 3 young children: Cambridgeshire, Wisbech 20 Queen Street ref: RG13/1556 Folio 17 Page 16 Schedule 121
