On the 1911 census does it say he was married for 10 years?
How old was he in 1911?

According to 1911
birth abt 1881
Birth Place: Stoke, Warwickshire, England


GlitterBaby Report 11 Feb 2013 22:59

Location would be useful


GlitterBaby Report 11 Feb 2013 23:02

The youngest child on 1911 census is registered as BAVINGTON

Births Dec 1909 (>99%)

BAVINGTON Horace Henry King's N. 6c 368


patchem Report 11 Feb 2013 23:15

Get the marriage certificate for name of Father?

Births Dec 1881
BAVINGTON Horace Henry Droitwich 6c 367
Not correct area.

Births Dec 1902
BAVINGTON Harriet Phoebe E Dudley 6c 48


GlitterBaby Report 11 Feb 2013 23:24

problem is that with his occupation in 1911 he could be anywhere in 1901 and even not recorded

Thank-you, GlitterBaby.


Jacquline Report 11 Feb 2013 23:49

that certainly sounds like him thank you both, do you think that the marriage that i found to elizabeth taylor in 1901 could be right and what happened to their other children i wonder but i suppose with all the traveling around they could have left them with someone. i was confused by place of birth as it said stoke warwick on 1911 cencus i was thinking of stoke on trent.
thanks again Jackie

thanks perhaps they made a mistake and it was wrong on cencus,


patchem Report 11 Feb 2013 23:57

They could be anywhere, including with her parents.


Jacquline Report 12 Feb 2013 00:06

yes they could, will have to see if i can find them on cencus if name taylor is correct it says that elizabeth was born in stoke also

patchem Report 12 Feb 2013 06:52

As Elizabeth Taylor is a very common name, you need the marriage certificate for the name of her Father, and children's birth certificate to check she is Elizabeth Taylor.
What is your connection to this family - what certificates have you already got?


Jacquline Report 12 Feb 2013 07:59

they are not related to me I am doing it for my cousin they are his fathers family,I will tell him to get the certificates and go from there thanks. made a bit of headway with george and found them back to 1841 except for 71 and 51 there are so many variations of the name, also found george snr marriage but spelt beavington.
thanks for your help
