Hi Maggie

Have had a look in the bmd's and can't find him. Alsochecked on find my past in the overseas bit and nothing. Had a look at the census image for 1901 with Sarah and children and to me it looks like it says shes widowed not married.
Sorry to not be more help


Margaret Report 19 Jul 2008 19:57

Thanks so much for trying Cathy
I think he may have been called something else, but why have Samuel on all the birth certs
It is so frustrating,
thanks Cathy for trying

Hi Silver Surfer

I have nothing on disc for the 1930's and 40's. Sorry.

Hi Cathy.

Thank you so much for the Teagle look up and for the explanation, now why didn't I think of that? ;-)

Don't know if you can help, but here goes. Trying to trace a marriage between a William Goler and a Frances (surname unknown). Info from the Clothworkers Co., London give a detailed account of where and when they lived - they received charity payments from 1798 to 1862 ! (Nothing changes). I know there first child was born in 1796 and baptised at Cripplegate. However, according to the Relief Book Frances gave her date of marriage as 18.8.1811. If this is correct they were living in Hort Street, Cripplegate at the time. Do any of your registers cover this.

Real long shot - Frances gives her date of birth as 28.8.1775 and date of baptism as 24.9.1775 and place as Clerkenwell. Any chance without a surname of finding this - should think highly unlikely. Any Goler you turn up will be related as there were so few of them !!

Hope you can help, but not holding my breath.
