Check out the age on the marriage cert which should also give his father's name and aoccupation.

Marriages Sep 1866

PARKER Albert H Kensington 1a 57
THOMAS Mary A Kensington 1a 57

I see from safc that his father on marriage cert was Isaac.

The tree on ancestry may have mixed up the name of Albert's mother with that of his wife. ( married Mary Ann Thomas 1866)

If this is Isaacs marriage ... there is no Mary Thomas

Marriages Mar 1838

Castle Margaret St Jas Westminsr 1 93
Collins Mary St James Westr 1 93
Ives William St James Westr. 1 93
Jarvis Sarah St James Westr. 1 93
*********************Parker Isaac St.James Westminster 1 93
Pickering Henry Umfreville St James Westr. 1 93
Seward Henry St. James Westr. 1 93
SMITH Elizabeth Ann St. James Westr. 1 93

From the list above it looks like this Isaac married Elizabeth Smith


Marriage: 20 MAR 1838 Saint James, Westminster, London, England

Not necessarily your family but there is no marriage for Isaac Parker and Mary Thomas so don't be tempted to copy that other tree.

Having problems finding birth of Henry Herbert Parker 1880, father Albert Henry Parker mother Mary Ann Thomas. Found London baptism 16 May 1880 might be typo on names.
Many thanks
Rob Hawkins


MarieCeleste Report 19 Apr 2013 20:24

Hi Rob, is this the baptism you mean?

London, England, Births and Baptisms, 1813-1906

Name: Henry Hubert Parker
Record Type: Baptism
Baptism Date: 16 May 1880
Father's Name: Alfred Henry Parker - labourer
Mother's Name: Mary Ann Parker
Parish or Poor Law Union: Notting Hill St Clement
Borough: Kensington and Chelsea
Register Type: Parish Registers

I'd say his name is definitely Henry Herbert on original, but father's name is written as Alfred (could have been misheard?)

Address is 31 Hunt Street.

There are three births in London area 1877 - 1879


Margaret Report 19 Apr 2013 20:31

Hi MarieCeleste,

Yes I think this is the baptism and I want to order the actual birth cert but cannot find it.
Any thoughts?




MarieCeleste Report 19 Apr 2013 20:32

Address on the 1881 matches the baptism and shows father as Albert:

PARKER, Albert H Head Married M 37 1844 General Labourer Kensington, Middlesex
PARKER, Mary A Wife Married F 33 1848 Laundress St Pancras, Middlesex
PARKER, Albert W Son Single M 10 1871 Scholar Hammersmith, Middlesex
PARKER, William J Son Single M 8 1873 Scholar Hammersmith, Middlesex
PARKER, George T Son Single M 7 1874 Scholar Hammersmith, Middlesex
PARKER, Kate E Daughter Single F 5 1876 Scholar Hammersmith, Middlesex
PARKER, Henry H Son Single M 1 1880 Hammersmith, Middlesex

Piece: 63 Folio: 122 Page: 19
Registration District: Fulham
Civil Parish: Hammersmith

Address: 31, Hunt St, Hammersmith County: London, Middlesex


MarieCeleste Report 19 Apr 2013 20:34

Have you ruled this one out?

England & Wales, FreeBMD Birth Index, 1837-1915

Name: Henry Herbert Parker
Date of Registration: Oct-Nov-Dec 1879
Registration district: Fulham
Inferred County: London
Volume: 1a
Page: 230

Did he by any chance die Weston-super-Mare?


Margaret Report 19 Apr 2013 20:40


I have the death cert and he died in 1935 in Willesden and the cert states 56 years old just no sign of birth.



MarieCeleste Report 19 Apr 2013 20:55

I'm getting a bit confused - you sign some posts as Margaret and some as Rob!

So what about that birth I've posted?


Margaret Report 19 Apr 2013 21:16


Yes I think this might be the birth and I shall have to send for the cert.
Sorry about name confusion, husband and I are both writing these! Its Rob's family.

If you have time could you look for Albert Henry Parker's birth in 1844. Census says he was born in Kensington 1844. He is the above person's father

Thanks for the help,
