Hello Christine - have you looked on FreeBMD for any potential marriages for George?

Have you found them on any census to narrow down birth year for George?

What research have you done yourself, so we don't duplicate.

Wish the 1871 image showed where on the Warwick Road because it's not far from me.

Yes, we really need feedback from Christine. I can't find a marriage of Richard Adams to Sarah Milward.

Margee

Margee Report 15 Aug 2012 21:31

That 81 census doesn't make sense. How could she be Sarah Adams, unmarried but daughter of James Milward?

alviegal

alviegal Report 15 Aug 2012 21:36

No idea Margee, but I've checked it. Perhaps they never married?

Margee

Margee Report 15 Aug 2012 21:37

Me too, I checked it!

MarieCeleste

MarieCeleste Report 15 Aug 2012 21:46

So did I!!

Maybe it's just an error. But where are Richard and the children?

Christine, with a fairly common name like that I'd recommend you get the marriage certificate for his father's name.
