Winifred Evelyn (Bobbie) BAGNALL1,2

(1905 - 1999)
Winifred Evelyn (Bobbie) BAGNALL was born in West Derby, Lancashire, on 22 August 1905. She was the daughter of Albert Edward and Harriet Elizabeth BAGNALL; he was a wine and spirit dealer.3,4,5 She was baptised on 20 September 1905 at Liverpool, Fairfield, Lancashire.5

Winifred married Ewen Mcgregor Field FERGUSSON, son of Augustus James FERGUSSON and Margaret Duncan MILLAR, between July 1931 and September 1931 in West Derby, Lancashire.6

Winifred arrived in London on 19 May 1933 on the Aeneas from Singapore, and returned to Singapore on the same ship, leaving Liverpool on the 4 Nov 1933.7

Winifred and her husband Ewen arrived in London on the Sarpedon from Singapore on 15 May 1935. They now gave their permanent residence as Malaya, although there is no record found of their return to Singapore after their marriage and before the birth of their son.8

Winifred and her husband Ewen returned to Singapore, leaving Liverpool on the Hector on 25 January 1936.9

Winifred and her husband Ewen arrived in Liverpool on 2 August 1945 on the Dominion Monarch from Melbourne accompanied by their children Donald. They are on the list of 'Malayan evacuees embarked at Melbourne', but also state their last permanent residence was in Australia. From this we conclude the family must have left Singapore before the Japanese invasion, although they have not been found on any passenger lists of ships leaving Singapore at that time.10

Winifred finally returned (giving England as intended permanent residence) on 27 March 1949, arriving into Southampton on the William Ruys accompanied by her children Donald.11

She was widowed at age 69 on the death of her husband Ewen on 24 October 1974.12,13

Winifred died on 26 June 1999 in Kensington & Chelsea, London, Middlesex, at age 93.2,14
