I wonder if Susan really was a Rumble and the Rumbold on the marriage was a typo or mis-heard?

Looks like we found the same marriage at the same time Christina!

Hi,
I found a marriage of a John Humphries to a Susan Rumbold Sept 1/4 1892 Wincanton. I tried to look her up but not getting too far. I only can rely on free census. I contacted my friend and the family still lived at the same address in 1960s as was on 1911 census! I noticed his spelling was bad on the other names! I will try to sort out John's side 1st I think.
Thanks again,
Chris.

Given the nephew's name in 1901, I wonder if this marriage is a possible:

Surname First name(s) District Vol Page
Marriages Sep 1892
Chilcott Emma Wincanton 5c 729
Evans William Wincanton 5c 729
HUMPHRIES John Wincanton 5c 729 <<
Rumbold Susan Wincanton 5c 729 ??

But, Beatrice May's birth cert would be the best bet.

1901 shows a nephew George Rumble - might be useful:

HUMPHRIES, John Head Married M 38 1863 Mason Wincanton, Somersetshire
HUMPHRIES, Susen Wife Married F 29 1872 Machinist (Shoe) Wincanton, Somersetshire
HUMPHRIES, Eveline G Daughter Single F 7 1894 Street, Somersetshire
HUMPHRIES, Robert J Son Single M 4 1897 Street, Somersetshire

A copy of her birth certificate will give her mother's maiden name so you can then work back:

Surname First name(s) District Vol Page
Births Jun 1904
Humphries Beatrice May Wells 5c 412

Her name was written as Beatress on the original 1911 image but her dad (who filled the form in) had put his own name as Jhon so spelling may not have been his strongest point!

Hi,
Thanks for your quick reply. She was an old friends mother and he has been trying to find out about her family. I note from your reply she is on the census as Beatress not Beatrice, so that's why I could not find her.
So far yours is the only info he has so now at least we have a starting point. It's the right family as John was a stone mason.
Thanks,
Chris

Hello Chris, how did you connect to her?

What info do you have so we don't duplicate it?

Have you searched FreeBMD for records? http://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl

Have you used the Search Trees facility here to see if anyone else has her?

Hi,
I am looking for any info on Beatrice May Humphries, born 1904 Wells Somerset. Her parents may have been John and Susan, and I believe she had a brother John/Jack. So far I cannot find anything about her.
Thanks,Chris.
