Merry Christmas gr users, hope your days are good,

I have found a John Humphrey in Kensington London in 1901 age 18,John was born 1883/4 Wadhurst Sussex. I now have his death cert which tells me he had a son called William J Humphrey.sadly i dont know what the J stands for but i am guessing its john after his dad or his grandfather was john also.

Do they show together anywhere in 1911,or maybe its that William was born after 1911.

Any help appreciated...mfm

Dear Reggie, i have not been able to find a marriage for John, i think it might be him in Kensington in 1901.

I have a John Humphrey death cert for 1959 stating his son William J Humphrey was the informant and living in Heathfield Sussex.

Thankyou Choccy so much for the death details.

Oh well christmas is nearly over,

Best wishes for 2013

You asked 'alviegal' about 1911.......... surely the 1911 census posted shows the child born 1906.................

Why did you buy John's death cert? You must have a connection...........what is it?

ManfromMars

ManfromMars Report 26 Dec 2012 10:45

Reggie, hi i bought john humphreys death cert to see if he was the son of John Humphrey,i am sorting the humphrey family out now.As i said though at the moment i dont know who John married to get William John Humphrey as a son.

I have just made contact with someone who may be able to help me though.Hopefully they can tell me Johns wifes name.

Best wishes mfm

ps i will let you know if i get the information.

Reggie Report 26 Dec 2012 11:42

I'm thoroughly confused now............

Which John Humphrey are you actually researching?

And surely you know that English death certs don't include parental info?
