Hi Everyone, I could do with some help. Trying to trace family of Derek A Duncan (mother Lilian Boulton) born 10/04/1924.

I am stumped as the info I can find says he married EITHER Monica Marshall (b 1926 in Sculcoates, Yorkshire) OR Monica JEBSON - can't find proof of who he did exactly marry just that it was in 1954!

The only other info is that Monica Marshall's mother's name was Mussi. And that Derek died in 1988 in Wandsworth, but I don't who the informant was and I would like to find this out too as I am hoping they will be my cousin and still alive!

Thanks for any help...it's a toughy (now there's a challenge!)
Anne ;-)

Do you actually have the death cert to see the informant's name?

Hi Shirley, I have seen the record of his death online but I don;t have the cert to see the informant - was wondering if someone on here already has access to see the full record online, if not I will have to order it which takes AGES!!

The record says he married Marshall or Jebson. This should be the same person who was previously married.

You would need to buy the cert for the info I,m afraid

The informant missed out his second name and had the wrong birth year so wonder if they were family

Hi Andrew

So if it says Marshall or Jebson, does that mean one is her maiden name and one is her married name, then she became Duncan after marrying Derek? I thought iwas a bit of a coincidence that they were both called Monica! The penny drops, thanks, that's really helpful. But I still don't know how to trace their children? Can I look up birth records with Mother's name Monica Duncan?

What a novice I am , sorry but REALLY happy for your help!

That's interesting Shirley, so maybe he had become estranged from his wife and any family? I need to order that cert to see the informant name, but then again if it's not family it may be no use!

Anne Report 5 Jan 2012 22:19

Hi Andrew thanks, that's great. What's the best way to find if they had any kids please?

Andrew

Andrew Report 5 Jan 2012 22:20

You will need to look for children in all the possible combinations.

It does look as if Monica was married before. Can't find record at the moment

Andrew he was Duncan - Derek A, born either in 1923 or 1924, mother listed as Lilian Boulton (who was Lilian Helena Boulton King, then Duncan in 1931)

Anne

Anne Report 5 Jan 2012 22:23

So I need to look for Monica Mussi and see if that throws up anyone> But then it won;t show up children unless I go through the search for Derek as father and Monica as mum, with surnames Duncan. Is there a database which is best for searching birth records do you find?

He was born in Willesdon and died in Wandsworth so would he have married in Yorkshire?? seems a long way round.

OK thanks Shirley and Andrew, I need to take my doggies out...will check back in the morning if you can recommend anything else, but HUGE thanks for your help tonight.

Still seems a bit odd though to be born and died in the SE but maybe married in Yorkshire ??

Are you sure its the same man ?
