Martin as a christian name was not too common back in the 1880's so to have it as his middle name indicating that was his father looks good....but could be wrong

Edit well done Dea and Maureen looks like problem solved

The more I look,the more I think that name really should be Pescott!

Look at all those matching births in Islington!

Cough cough...Who found the "Pescott" 1901 lot to set you all on the trail then...?

Polish,polish,pat ,pat..

But well done you other lot.....I suppose.

At least he knew who his father was it would seem...Like my Nan..And did the same as her by juggling the surname of father on marriage cert to be the same as his...

Hang on everyone !!!!!!

I'm still not quite back yet but although I DO think we have something here, there are several 'loose ends' to sort out before any of us should get out the 'Halo polish' !!!!

I will come back to them soon !

I really think the address on marriage cert and on 1901 census for George Martin(Butchers assistant )does it for me folks....Cant see how much more cut and dried it can be...

Sorry couldnt help out more but HID is away to Somerset for the day and so I have extra outside work to do...Soz...

Not that I was really needed after the 1901 Pescott census anyway..:)

Well done folks...

Just needs one of you to put it all into easy to follow wording now.:)

Like Henry/Harry Prescott/Pescott was ILLEGITIMATE but knew who his father was(bit of luck there) .....Take it from there folks....

I believe we are right Fans but I DO like to be certain !! e.g.:

Re the 1901 address - 'slight' problem - 1901 was 10 Queensland Square - addresses on marriage cert were 96 Queensland Road and 10, QUEENS Square !!! - Needs confirming !!!

One or two other points need confirming too I am afraid !!

We all know by now just how easy it is to go along with something which looks 99.9% right, only to find it is in fact 100% wrong !!
