If you are wanting to go backwards it's a good idea to have their marriage cert for fathers names

??? or a red herring?

Births Mar 1915 (>99%)
Hawkins Frederick W Martin Dartford 2a 1214

Other Hawkins/Martin births in Kent 1910-1920

Births Dec 1912 (>99%)
Hawkins Robert A Martin Strood 2a 1248 99%)

Births Dec 1920
Hawkins Dorothy E Martin Dartford 2a 1212

There are later ones which you can find on freebmd and it won't cost you anything

The Dartford registration district covers both Farningham and Swanley, which are quite close together

There only appears to be one Hawkins/Martin marriage within a suitable time frame, but it doesn't seem 'right' :-0

Marriages Mar 1905 (>99%)
HAWKINS Richard Leicester 7a 342
MARTIN Mary Leicester 7a 342

It might be worth ordering the BC as posted above for Frederick W Hawkins to see if the parent's names match at a cost of £9.25 from

that 1915 birth isnt showing on Ancestry which is why I wasn't finding it.

I thought Ancestry uploaded BMDs from FreeBMD so its strange it isnt there

+++DetEcTive+++

+++DetEcTive+++ Report 13 Jan 2013 12:14

Perhaps freebmd uploaded it the last time and Ancestry haven't caught up?

I'm not happy with the Leicester marriage, if anyone can find something more appropriate or at least find the 1911 and rule it out!

Shirley~I,m getting the hang of it Report 13 Jan 2013 12:15

Bertha's birth isnt on FreeBMD either but these look like siblings

We still aren't sure if where Melissa wants to go with this - Ancestors or siblings of her grandparents! She's probably gone off to find the names she does have.

Possibly!

Depending on what info Melissa already has, it might be best for her to purchase Frederick's BC rather than go off at a tangent.

That 1901 marriage might be on http://cityark.medway.gov.uk/ if anyone wanted to have a dig.

Where's Cynthia when you need her? :-D
