hi just letting all know that i have just received a part refund for 1c 407

for mary king nee wells death, in mile end, this was not her,

this just make thing right that Riocohet said

i dont know where walter / edgar king was born, ? who his mother was,? i only have his father on his marriage cert as Thomas king dec,? which may not even be his fathers name ? as Riocohet pointed out,

i do not have a clue where to go from here, every time i get a glimmer of hope bang up comes a brick wall, not with one but three of them, i think i have been waisting every ones time for which i do appologise.

but do thank you

So sorry Kelly you cant complete this journey. As Ricochet said his fathers name might have been invented. I have just received a birth cert where the fathers name is added and I know for certain that father had died in WW1 13 months earlier.
Sadly the baby died and her mother died 8 days after. There were then 4 children left as orphans. So sad

Well what a surprise, the gro refunded £7 of my search money for
Edgar w king as no match,
so there is only the parish records but i am not holding my breath on
that either,
as if i am unable to find his birth from 2 gro searches then i think thats
it, its such a shame, as my mum can only go back to her grand father,
still thats life
i do thank you all for your very king help

my regards

this site drives me mad, i have just lost a long reply to you

i am not sure i think there was one in there they were fish mongers
which i dont think was them
i have been in touch with a lady in cambridge who has axcess to parish
records, and is going to do a search, but i am not holding out much hope
i have had so many very king people searching for me, but have all come back with nothing,
i just think he MUST be somewhere, and for all of them to go i just cannot get my head round it.
but i really do thank you

Hope the parish registers show a baptism.

Been reading through the thread again and found this which you posted 9th April on page 4.


"
my mum/s brother said that he was told walter was born to an american woman, who didnt want him and gave him away to some people, perhaps this is why i cannot find him, anyway any help to find thomas and mary a would be appreciated"

Makes you wonder if this is true as Thomas and Mary were quite old in 1901 to not have any other children so maybe they unofficially adopted Walter.
