Is that the right age for Evie?

Do you know that they did actually marry?

Possibly?

Marriages Jun 1908
BAINES Sarah Watford 3a 1456


She's the fifth person on the page, so a simple mistranscription of the page no?

1456 when it should have been 1466?

I think she's Sarah Baines, as I posted earlier.

Do you know of any children born post 1911 so we could check mother's maiden name to confirm?

Sorry just realized I put 1879 for Evie (just to confuse) :-(

Andrew, what do you think of Sarah Baines, a fifth person on page 1456 (mistranscribed for 1466??) as I posted further up the thread?

Or have you dismissed her for some reason?

Stuart

Stuart Report 16 Dec 2012 15:11

Looking at the original page for Sarah Baines via freebmd, the third number is definitely difficult to determine - one person has transcribed as 3a 1456 and another as 14_6.
Kucinta has probably found the answer, the certificate would confirm

MarieCeleste

MarieCeleste Report 16 Dec 2012 15:11

Kucinta - definitely think you're right with Sarah Baines. Looked at the original image and it's a blurry "1466"

Kucinta

From page 1456

Looks like Alice Mary Underlin married Archie Frank Samuels:

Address: 14 Market St Watford County: Hertfordshire

SAMUELS, Archie Frank Head Married 2 years M 39 1872 Railway Lap Maker Paddington London<<<<
SAMUELS, Alice Mary Wife Married F 38 1873 Bushley Herts<<
SAMUELS, Hilda Daughter Married F 2 1909 Watford Herts
SAMUELS, Sarah Mother Widow F 79 1832 Bushley Herts


Am having trouble identifying Reginald Simons in census 1911 - I was hoping to find him with May (Wayman}, which would leave Sarah Baines left over from that page

Kucinta

Kucinta Report 16 Dec 2012 15:40

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reginald Simons and wife May emigrated in 1909, so that leaves only Sarah Baines without a spouse on page 1456.

Kucinta,
Not sure what to think about Sarah Baines as I am following the Edwards family so Definitely Archibald William Edward. As you have said a purchase of the Certificate would be the answer to this.

thanks to all those that had input to this post. :-)
