A big thank you to eveyone who has posted and answered on my thread.

I think that my research has to start again at my grandparents - the Robert Lovell, which I was researching, appears now to have been an error on my part.

I have been too busy with work to spend time online and will return to review the research, which you have all kindly added.

Thanking you again :D

As stated on a previous post - the marriage records showing witnesses etc are from Ancestry

Hi, I am back!

Apologies to all for leaving the conversation, as I am sometimes unable to access pc due to work commitments!

Reggie, whilst I appreciate the above entry, I believe that this might be correct. As 'Harry' is buried with my Great Grandfather in St Marys, Ilford, Essex.

Our Harry served in Northern Ireland and it is my mothers belief, that following his military service that he may have died, following a nervous breakdown, in Brentwood.

My mother recalls, her father often travelling by horse and cart over to Warley to work with his brothers, in the 1920s.

Whilst I am familiar with the freebmd site - where can I see the entries mentioned for marriages, showing names & witnesses ie the marriage of William to Louisa?

So sorry, once again for absence. I REALLY appreciate everyones comments. However, I must admit, following my research of the Lovells to Penzance: Ive learned that I really MUST check the spouses names/parents before continuing.

You can't get the names of parents from freebmd - it is a transcription of the GRO index, which gives you the necessary info to be able to order the cert(s)

Marriage records in England do not, in any case, include any info about the mothers - only the fathers of the couple marrying are recorded.

Any London marriages which have been posted above are from Ancestry website

Point taken Mike! I just googled the Devon town!

Getting too confused at this hour of morning - will have to have a relook on my tree, when I ve got a quiet house :)

One thing is for sure, I need to work out on FreeBMD and other sites how to extract the names of bride/groom parents and other records. The census's are full of info, but as proven by all involved here - you really need to make sure you have the right person each time you find a possible link! :D

Could it be that the grave you mentioned is the wrong William ?

The William Henry ( who could have been known as Harry) and who had a father Robert, was from Devon area ... not a million miles from Cornwall !

Reggie - I am 100% about his children, Charles, Ida, Walter & Alfred!

My Grandfather is Walter.

Charles, I believe lived in Hainault Forest, Essex and I think Alfred resided in Dagenham, Essex?

Mike * Report 26 Jun 2012 00:04

More likely that Harold not William was known as Harry.

As stated earlier, the William Lovell who married Louisa Prophet named his father as Samuel not Robert..

Hence the reason that William had Samuel as his middle name I should imagine.

Hi everyone,

Thank you all for your interest and valued assistance with this :-D

One thing that I am certain of is that the following is 100%

In 1901 he is -

LOVELL, William S Head Married M 32 1869 Boot Maker Tottenham, Middlesex VIEW
LOVELL, Louisa Wife Married F 32 1869 Edmonton, Middlesex VIEW
LOVELL, Lawrance C Son M 5 1896 Stratford, Essex VIEW

Registration District: Kingston
Civil Parish: Kingston upon Thames
Municipal Borough:
Address: 43, Somerset Road, Kingston Upon Thames

However, apart from the 'duplication' of marriage, I was advised by the Chuch (where he is buried) that William S Lovell's family came from Cornwall. Also, the church records in Ilford, show that he is buried with other members of his family, including his younger brother Harold b1875 d1930 Brentwood! :-S
