Marriage

James Boyne - Leonard -Jan-Feb-Mar 1915- Hull Yorkshire East Riding
Mary Leonard- Boyne - Jan-Feb-Mar 1915 Hull Yorkshire East Riding


The marriage certificate will tell you their ages and father's names

EDITTED in case still living.

There are some births on freebmd for Boyne / Leonard but in Leeds not Hull and quite a while after the marriage so may not be your family.

To view simply enter both surnames only

Do you have your Grandfather's birth certificate to get his mother's maiden surname please?

If James Boyne was his step father of James Patrick Leonard then it looks like Leonard was Mary's name when she first married?


EDIT

Perhaps Mary hadn't been married before. This looks like her son's birth

His birth? Mother's maiden name Leonard, was she unmarried at time?

Mary Leonard 1885 Hull parents Michael and margaret Leonard.
1891 in Leeds
1901 Leeds Mary a ragsorter
1911 Mary a ragsorter in prison??

Mary Boyne born 1885 died leeds 1967.

Info off a tree says Mary leonard 1885 Hull had Kathleen mary leonard 12/10/1911 died in leeds,she married John Charles Clarke 1909- 1974 and had a son.

Same Mary leonard married James Boyne.

I agree with Mike that you ought to buy that marriage certificate to get her father's name.
