Hi Paul
Sorry i missed the bit about you having his marriage certificate.
Aldershot was covered by the Farnham District so it could be the correct one.


CRIPES_A_MIGHTY Report 21 Dec 2011 06:25

Yes....I'm thinking it most probably is.....
There appears to be no other that comes
I guess I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and buy the birth cert.

Ho Hum!

Thanks Astra for your time. :)

Have you tried to contact the person who made the correction to his birthplace (on the 1891 census) on Ancestry?

Hi rootgatherer,

Sorry not respnded...didnt think anyone else was tking any notice of my post. I need to look over what you say...but I'm pretty sure I have it right.

But thanks for your input.

Jack Wicks is my grandfather on my mothers side.
I have his Birth & Marriage Certs.

His parents John Wicks & Emma Fuller.
I have their Marriage Cert.

Johns father is George Wicks a labourer....

Thats all I know...
I do not have Johns birth I don't know which John he is...but I blieve this is most probably him.

Births Mar 1876
WICKS John Farnham 2a 91

But I cannot find him in the 1881 census..I think I have found him in the 1891 census but he is not at it doesn't help with finding his parents.

So I am at a dead end right now.
I have ordered the above birth record...but I doubt it will arrive until next year!!.

Ho Hum!!

I had a look at 1911 - there's one kid that died, so seeing as all the other births were rego'ed in the St Marys subdistrict of Reading RD, I tried looking at deaths infant deaths 1898-1911 rego'ed in St Marys, and then matching births - 3 possible kids
