I wonder how accurate the information was that they gave for the census. In 1911 Mary Ann's brother William is 2 years younger than her and in 1901 he is 4 years younger. I can't see Mary Ann and her brother William on earlier census with their father Charles but wondered about this family where both the parents were born in Leeds.

You need his marriage certificate. If he's Jonathan from his marriage onwards and William from before his marriage then how (at the moment) do you know he's one and the same man? These could be two separate people.

Jill, if we have the correct census for 1911 (where he is Jonathan) and 1901 (where he gives his name as William) it looks like it is the same person.

Geraldine Report 17 Sep 2011 10:36

I have the 1893 marriage certificate for William/Jonathan. He married as jonathan, Mary ann cameron was born in loughborough. her mother was Mary Birchall and father charles cameron. Jonathan's father was william working as iron worker. In 1901 census jonathan was named as william, in 1911 named as Jonathan. His death certificate names him as Jonathan William , bu t his grave stone names him as Wiiliam J. These facts are all correct, as i've verified them by, people living with them were named as witnesses on their marriage certificate. Mary ann does not have any connections with darlington. The addresses are all correct from family knowledge. The problem is We do not know of any siblings of william/ jonathan.

It is so frustrating

But i wonder if father Williams death certificate would state his occupation at the time of his death?
