While being away on holiday to cornwall last week we passed by Ottery St Mary Devon where my grandfather came from, it was only when we got to where we were staying that my mother let slip who my grandfathers father was but as he was not born until 1918 i suppose i will have to wait until the next load of census are due out, although this was someone from where my great grandmother worked as a servant.

Sorry im reading it wrong, i thought it meant to the next name down - hence being Eliza

Bessie is the step-daughter to John Shaddick - not Eliza. Frederick and Bessie seem to be Eliza's children from before her marriage to John Shaddick.

Flick
On the 1871 census you kindly put up for me it states that Bessis is a step daughter to Eliza,
But then below that is a marriage for 1864 with Eliza's maiden name being Dibble so could this not be an older sister maybe?????

Just a thought sorry

MMN is not on the index until after 1911.............but it will be on the birth cert

KathleenBell

KathleenBell Report 12 Jun 2011 17:02

It doesn't mean that there will be no mother's maiden name on the certificate. Just that before 1911 mother's maiden name was not added to the index.

Thanks for that one Glitter Baby,

Oh if that one you have found Kathleen is right then that can be a problem without a mothers maiden name, was this a common thing??
