I can only see a Frederick Walter Goodwin born 1909?

Do you know when/where Frederick Oswin died (might give his birthdate to help)

His father (if known) would be named on his marriage certificate to your gran.

EDIT: found a likely death -

ok maybe -know he wasn t keen on him as rather violent towards his mother

MarieCeleste Report 3 Jun 2012 13:28

Oh dear, he probably was older than two if he can remember that, poor thing.

Some further info from his parent's marriage

Neither had been married before and both put address as 42 St James Road.

Charles father was deceased but had been a butcher. Louise's father's name looks more like Osmond and he was a "chaff-cutter". Charles was a horse-keeper.

The witnesses were Minnie Layton and Frederick Goodwin.

The unnamed daughter on this 1861 is actually a son called Osman (Osmond, and the mother is possibly Eleanor). The sister Georgiana is who Osmond was staying with in 1901:

PARTRIDGE, Georgiana Daughter F 12 1849 Scholar Southminster

This looks like his marriage but I'm unable to find him on 1881 or 1891 to see which of the brides was his:

Surname First name(s) District Vol Page
Marriages Dec 1880
JONES Robert Islington 1b 633
Partridge Osmond Islington 1b 633
Pryke Sarah Ann Islington 1b 633 ??
Vokes Harriet Islington 1b 633 ??

and this looks like his death:

England & Wales, Death Index: 1916-2006

Birth Date: abt 1856

Looks like he was recorded as Oswald in 1881:

KEMP, Martha Head Widow F 33 1848 St Pancras, Middlesex
KEMP, Charles Son Single M 15 1866 Cheesemongers Assistant Islington, Middlesex
KEMP, John Son Single M 14 1867 Errand Boy Hoxton, Middlesex

PARTRIDGE, Oswald Lodger Head Married M 26 1855 Drapers Assistant Islington, Middlesex <<
PARTRIDGE, Sarah Wife Married F 21 1860 Islington, Middlesex

Piece: 228 Folio: 104 Page: 12

So he must have married Sarah Ann Pryke.
