You say that Simon and Catherine are your great, great grandparents. Is their son James your great grandfather? If so which of his children is your grandparent - just so we know we have the right James in the census.

Unless James married again after 1911, he fathered only one legitimate child

There are quite a few marriages in Middlesbrough for the name James Fleming after 1911 so it's difficult to know if he married again unless Helen knows if he did remarry and who to.

This could possibly be the marriage of the child born 1904:-

Name: FLEMING, James P
Registration district: Middlesbrough
County: Yorkshire
Year of registration: 1928
Quarter of registration: Jul-Aug-Sep
Spouse's last name: Donnelly
Volume no: 9D
Page no: 1336

Name: DONNELLY, Agnes H
Registration district: Middlesbrough
County: Yorkshire
Year of registration: 1928
Quarter of registration: Jul-Aug-Sep
Spouse's last name: Fleming
Volume no: 9D
Page no: 1336

Helen needs to confirm how she worked back through her 'line'...............all of the info posted could be for the wrong James

I think I have worked back from Helen (going by her surname when clicking on her name) and found that she does seem to descend from the James Patrick born 1904 - but Helen needs to confirm this.

I have two marriage certificates for James b. 1872, one giving father as Simon, a puddler, and another saying father is James, a puddler. James' birth certificate gives parents as Catharine Fleming formerly Conroy and Simon James Fleming.

Yes Reggie, the son James from North Ormesby was my lovely Grandad :)

I wonder why Catharine would be 'formerly' Conroy? But as I can't find any marriage for Catharine and Simon/James then I don't know.

Sorry, busy day at work so haven't been able to get on. Yes you all have the right lines. There is a plethora of Catherine James and Mary Ann's in the family so this is tying me up in knots! Not helped by the fact that Agnes Donnelly's grandmother married the father of James Fleming senior's second wife, and they also have a mysterious Mary Ann in there family !! So my head is in a complete spin.

James sr did marry again in 1916 and had a daughter Catherine. I am researching this with newly found cousin once removed, Catherine's son.

The wording on the birth certificate that says Catherine Fleming "formerly" Conroy just means that Conroy was her maiden name. This is the wording on most birth certificates.

If she had been married to someone else before she married Simon Fleming the certificate would have said ....Catherine Fleming, late (first married name), formerly Conroy.

Who was James Patrick's mother?

When and where did she marry his father?

Helen

Helen Report 13 Feb 2013 00:10

James Patrick's mother was Jane Ann Lehan nee Hanna, (widowed). She married James Fleming in 1903, James Patrick was born in 1904 and she died when he was 4½. James sr remarried Mary Ann Flannagan in 1916 and had a daughter Catherine. Mary Ann already had a daughter Mary who has led me a merry dance too. (See Flannagan/Fleming thread if you want tying in knots too!!) :-S
