TUDOR Mary D HUGHES Owen J Liverpool, Register Office or Registrar Attended Liverpool REG_LP/349/187


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 8 Oct 2012 17:13

How old was Owen on the MC please?

It might be possible to find some possible listings on the 1911 census which match his approximate age.

What are the names of the witnesses? They may be family members


Reggie Report 8 Oct 2012 17:16

Is this the woman's birth?

Births Mar 1896 (>99%)
Tudor Mary Doris W. Derby 8b 315


Reggie Report 8 Oct 2012 17:19

The man is almost certainly births in England


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 8 Oct 2012 17:22

And a heck of a lot of births 1880 - 1905 in Wales!!

We really need feedback and his declared age in 1924 to move any further


Reggie Report 8 Oct 2012 17:35

We also need to know what the OP is hoping for.............


Londonbelle Report 8 Oct 2012 17:38

+++DetEcTive+++ Report 8 Oct 2012 18:48

And the witnesses please? Was he a batchelor or a widower?

David may still be living - you could look for him on which is a pay-to-view site. Also look for him on this site. Someone else may have him on their tree.

Back to Owen - so he was probably born 1895 +/-

Reggie Report 8 Oct 2012 22:09

Reggie Report 8 Oct 2012 22:13

If you buy this death cert, you'll find out if she was Owen's 'wife' or 'widow' at the time

Reggie Report 8 Oct 2012 22:16

Stuart's 1891/1901 censuses look very likely to be correct...didn't you see them?


Reggie Report 8 Oct 2012 22:18

The son's birth cert won't actually help you.....and he was born in 1932

He married in 1960


Pamela Report 9 Oct 2012 07:58

thankyou every body for all your help :-)
