Hi Tracey, Thanks for replying, I dont think she was married before, Giving that she was 24 i would think that was 1st time married.

William,

Janet used 2 different surnames on her marriage record.... this is usually due to a previous remarriage.....

There is also other options.... Janet either lived with someone and was commonly known by the surname Atkins.... or her mother remarried an Atkins and Janet used the name (again became commonly known as Atkins)

Either way, Janet has been commonly known bu the name Atkins also!

Do you have the marriage certificate?

What exactly does it say?
What was her father's occupation?
What were their addresses at the time of marriage?
What was his age, occupation and father's name and occupation?

If you don't have it, then I would suggest the first thing to do would be to buy a copy!

Have had a general search on scotlands people and there is a birth for a Janet R. Black in 1909, but don't have any credits to have a look.

EDIT:-

There is also a marriage for a Richard Black to an Agnes ? in 1903

Sorry William but I don't understand.
You're initial request was to find out what the R stood for in Janet's name and you are now saying that her name was Janet Rutherford Black?

WayneTracey

WayneTracey Report 19 Dec 2012 22:30

William

I'm confused?? You asked in you OP what the R stands for in Janet's name.... and then in your last post you tell us it's Rutherford..... if you knew this why did you not tell us??

I assume you want to know where the name Rutherford comes from?

You will have to get yourself some credits on Scotland's People and take a look to see if it's a name familiar in Agnes's line? Was Agnes a Rutherford??


Tracey

Sorry about the way i worded it , I should have been more clearer, The reason being i could only find 2 marriages for Janet Black one to Thomas Hume and the other to Claude Jackson which showed R in middle name , Without really thinking i asked in my OP what the R stood for hoping i might get Rutherford to confirm my thoughts ,I have taken this search as far as i can on Scotlands People as family all moved to Willesden in London in the late 1920's

Name: Janet Rutherford Coles
Birth Date: 1909
Date of Registration: Oct 1984
Age at Death: 75
Registration district: Brent
Inferred County: Middlesex
Volume: 11
Page: 529


Have you eliminated the lady above please?

It may be that she didn't use her middle name when she married?

william

william Report 20 Dec 2012 13:37

I think we can now eliminate Hume & Jackson and go with Coles as birth year and middle name matches, Much appriciated.

William,

Can i just say, you cannot simply just 'go with something' just because details *might* fit.

You would need to order certificates to prove the information found for you.


Tracey

william Report 20 Dec 2012 15:37

I understand that Tracey , What i meant was will order cert for Janet Coles first, As she would appear to be best match , As you say cant take anything for certain till you have real proof.
