Maddie, I have marraige certificate of Albert William Freeman, To Florence May Robertson,1915 All Saints Worcester. What has confused me is that he named his dad as John Benjamin Freeman on the certifate, but i believe John was his brother, as i found John Benjamin brn 1891. On the 1911 census mother Eliza,widowed Abert was 24 a drover then John Followed by Walter, all this ties up that William was his dad. Albert was here in Gloucester in 1922, from then i hit a brick wall. I dont knkow why he lied about John being his dad, but through TV programes i know lies was told at times. Thank you all for your replies. T L Freeman

Exactly what information are you looking for Terry?

Reggie

Reggie Report 15 Nov 2012 16:11

It would have been helpful, Terry, if you'd told us all you knew at the start ...and also if you'd say now what you are looking for.

He didn't necessarily lie about his father's name....he may simply have been confused.

When did his father die?

Terry

Terry Report 15 Nov 2012 18:09

Reggie, i believe Alberts dad William died in 1901 age 42 ,this came via this thread i only knew this because of the feedback. and recieving the marraige certificate since my last appeal.and some help from a friend.i wanted proof who Alberts father was, i am quite new to this.
Thank you for replying to me
