Keith Report 16 Jan 2013 16:05

I have been searching for a while for the marriage of William Trotman B.1869 in Wotton- Under-Edge his father was John Brown/Trotman or Trotman/Brown his mother was Esther Painter b.1847 the family moved to Bridgend in Wales and he was eventually killed in the 1901 Senghenydd Pit explosion in 1901. The last view I found of him was in the 1891 census as a boarder at a Mr Bakers house. His address at the time of his death was 18, Grove Terrace Caerphilly. Can anyone help me please with the name of his wife. Many thanks Keith.
