Prickles,

Although it doesn't say so on the census return, I think Mary Hannah's age must be 71/2 MONTHS as I believe this to be her birth:

Births Dec 1910 (>99%)
WORDINGHAM Mary H Castle W. 10b 335

The reg district includes Kenton where she was born and it is strange that the children are in the order of the 8 year old, then the 5 year old and then a 7 1/2 year old comes last ??

I can't see Mary Hannah's birth Prickles but you have the wrong one for 'Sammie' - it is this one:

Births Jun 1904 (>99%)

Many thanks all of you for such prompt replies. The link has been found by my cousin, she has more experience of this than I. She is the daughter of Harold and Lena Singleton. Harold being my Grandfathers brother. Thanks again all

Ahaa !!!

She appears to be following the Singleton line (judging by her surname) so she obviously knew Mavis's birth name already!

I think I will wait and see what she wants help with when she comes back.

Hi Prickles :-) :-) :-)

I wonder where Pam wants to go next with this one?

She really needs Lena's marriage cert to find out who her parents were as I can't seem to tie her down on census - can you?

We really need to know which line she is actually wanting to follow.
