His marriage cert would tell you his father's name...if he knew it.

Please can anyone find me a John Cook Williams b 1883 Exeter Devon before his marriage to a Elizabeth Ann Stenniford in 1902 Devonport Devon.
In 1911 the Stenniford family are found to be living in Jeddo St Newport Monmouthshire but John Cook Williams is a lodger living with a Henry Ford and family in Swansea Glamorganshire.He is a miner.
Thank you

Hi Lexie,

Yes the Mums maiden name should be on the birth cert, ( I have certs from 1840's with mothers maiden name on them)

If the mum had been married more than once it should say
Mother ? ? (full forename/s and married surname)
Formaly ? (first married surname)
Nee ? (Maiden surname)

It was just that from Sept Quarter 1911 the mothers maiden name was also added to the Birth Index.

Hope this helps

Thank you

Reggie Report 22 Mar 2013 11:31

Well, you'll need to find the birth info..............no-one can look for them in censuses without it

But.......why don't you buy Rosina's birth cert?

Lexie

Lexie Report 22 Mar 2013 11:24

Thank you for your reply

The witnesses for the above marriage were
Lily McNicholas who married William sister of Rosina

George Knowles who married Ivy who was also sister of Rosina

I have no other birth info for the other siblings the dates given to me were from the daughter of Rosina

Lexie Report 22 Mar 2013 09:45

Belated thanks just got back to looking at this side of family

The two marriages you mention are correct.

Other siblings of Rosina were John William Tom and James all seem to have been born 1900/1911 so why dont any of them show up on any census

Thank you
