Who did he marry? You must know something else to have come by him in the first place.

If you are certain of his birthplace and exact first name, there is only one. But how do you know where he was born?

This is probably him born 1889 seems more likely than any of the others thanks everyone now to see if William and Louise can be traced and fit in ;-)

I am wondering about your info as it is William who married a Denman:

Marriages Jun 1910 (>99%)
Bartlett William Weymouth 5a 642
Denman Louisa Harriet Weymouth 5a 642

Margee

Margee Report 28 Oct 2012 14:25

That looks right, Jan. So the children's births that I posted are probably children of William & Louisa? Or did Harry change his name to William?

You're welcome Kazzie, hope it's helped rather than hindered! A word of advice - do your own research as much as possible, or at least try to verify what others tell you. People do get it wrong sometimes.

Get familiar with Freebmd, which shows birth marriage and death records 1837-about 1955. Have a go at finding Bartlett/Denman marriage and births.

Just one more thing - I would assume that this is the William from 1911 above, father is a butcher.
