Bernard is the only birth I can see that comes up automatically, although mother's maiden name is noted as being McCartney, maybe?

Hi Thanks all for helping,
@stuart,... i came across that info for robert and sarah many thanks , i no i only got bernards birth with sarah last name on which i sent for.... but not come across any others.... she done some travelling this is why its confusing, Mary her first brn lancaster was born lancaster but such a gap..between them so just wondering , but like mention i was told maybe another 4 or five siblings some where,,, mystery i no ...
@catherine, maybe births to her only way is to get cert to find if they are correct, but if not its a chance you have to take and spend money....
i have to check this robert, wwi.. i have a few timlins within my tree so i have to see if i have aconnection with ww1 records...
many thanks for serching for me much apprecaited :-)

When I was looking for info on Timlin births a lot came up for Ireland. Could it be that Robert was from an Irish family and the couple lived in Ireland for a while. If so, then that could explain why we can't find any more births in England.

Just a thought?

The age difference could also be explained by WW1. After all Mary was born in 1910 4yrs before the start of WW1 and Bernard 1919, just after the end of WW1?

@catherine.. my robert who was married to sarah ,, no he was born lancaster so was his mum (mary)...., i no its confusing... ive come up against a few like this which is a huge headache at times :-(
umm.. yes sarah a mystery, she did a lot of wondering i think, but bernard we think had younger siblings but i dont no ... there not here to ask...
but i see what you mean ;-)
