I think she probably took her mothers name as her second name.

Have you got the marriage cert?

That's an interesting one Mel - the only thing that gives me pause is that the marriage cert shows her as Lillie Jane, not May. Not sure how much weight I should give that though.

Thank you Ann. I had looked at Lilian Fursse, but decided she was too young in 1911 (unless she lied about her age to get married). I think you have the right one though, Andrew, the address on the marriage cert is 29 Holloway Street. That explains why I couldn't find her on the 1911 at least. Now I know that Thomas, Jane and Lillie were indeed living together before both marriages - well done!

Now all I need is to find her birth.............

Can anyone help me to find the birth of Lillie Jane Fursey who married George Hayward in December 1911 in Hounslow Middlesex? I have searched for Lily, Lilian, Lillian, Elizabeth, Eliza, Jane and anything else that she could remotely have been named. According to the marriage cert, she was 20 and a spinster. Family resources have her birthday as 7/9/1891. A complete blank so far!

Her father is shown on the marriage cert as Thomas Neller Fursey who was also one of the witnesses. However, Thomas Neller (not Fursey) married Jane Fursey in May 1918 - seven years after Lillie's marriage.

The help of any bored genius who happens to read this would be greatly appreciated!
