hi im wondering if anyone can help me go a bit further back with this family
Thomas Knight abt 1894 - 1947 from Warrington (i think he was born in Warrington but not 100% sure) he was married to Lily Hart. They lived in Warrington Lancashire
His father was Peter Knight 1871 - 1947
His mother was Elizabeth Woods 1872 -
I'm struggling with Elizabeth Woods family I just have her father as John Woods (liverpool) married to Susannah?
I dont know how correct this is and I can't get any further with them . Trying to do family chart for member of the family for Christmas but with bits missing off this family it doesnt look finished off. Thanks for any help :)

How do you know Thomas's mother's maiden name without having found out where he was born?

i have made connection with a family member and have had a look at their tree but they also look like they are struggling with Elizabeth Woods side of the family. I have got the names that i have from there, but as is always the case when you look at someone elses tree they may not be correct?? i think the male side of the family is right but know nothing about Elizabeth's side.
