Ok.........i am back! :-D

I have just spent an hour going though the muddle i posted yesterday to see if i can make any sence of it.

We have the marriage that states that "Eliza" Sweetser married William Cove... who's Father is a Thomas Cove.....Labourer.

Searching through the records........i cannot spot a Willam Cove with the details given on that marriage record.

Assuming the details i posted are correct and that "Eliza" Sweetser was actually baptised "Ada Eliza Sweetser"..........and as i already said, the 1911 census i posted all seems to tie in, except for the fact that it has "Thomas" as the husband.

I have traced that Thomas back through the records and this is what i have found........


So on the 1911 census, we have Thomas Cove born 1873 Westminster London....Occupation...Masons Labourer.

On the marriage record, we have William Cove, age 19 (Labourer) born abt 1875....Father Thomas Cove (Labourer)..........One of the witnesses..........Dan Cove.

Infact most of my parents families are no longer alive now. There was another person who looked up the:; Sweetzer: family a couple of years ago for my late father, this person was looking up his own family tree at that time but he was not sure if this was our family...?
I will look up the marriage between my grandparents and try and find out more about their parents and the children they had too. The only name that came up was Carey, and this family was mentioned a few times but i don't think that this could be right...?

Wendy, we hit lucky with Laura's side as the surnames were so unusual.

Because Henry Powell is a much more common name you really do need to get that marriage certificate to get his father's name & occupation - it will also hopefully verify what we've found about Laura. You should now have a good start to work back from the 1911 for her family.

Just for reference, does this look like Henry's death?
