Parents of William Jarman..b1823c

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


June Report 20 Dec 2012 16:15

I am trying to find the parents of William Jarman who was born in Peckham,Surrey and was a Vet. He died in S.Africa in 1861. He was married to a Mary Scott 1/6/1845.
Trouble is that the name keeps changing ..jarma/.german/jermain!!
On the 1851 census they are in Neath and as Jerman!
There are some ties to Bowness/Wigton/Cumberland.
I have been tearing my hair out to get something concrete.....
Any help would be much appreciated please.
Thank you. June Jarman

His marriage certificate will give you his father's name and occupation.
