Hello Danielle, when Florence married Bert Holmes she would have been 60 so they wouldn't have had any children after that time, although they may have been together as a couple before then.

Whether you're descended through the Holmes or the Bainbridge line you can trace back by getting a copy of the appropriate marriage certificate for her. You can order from GRO http://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/default.asp costs £9.25

Thank you so much for all the replies, I didn't know any of the dates of Florence's marriages, I'm so pleased you found her marriage to "Kimberley" as I had heard of this, but the person who I heard it off wasn't sure if it was a rumour. As I said I am all new to this, so I really appreciate the help. Thanks again :-)

Looks like Florence married twice.

First in 1902 to William Kimberley in Kettering.

Then in 1942 Florence Kimberley married Bert Holmes in Kettering.
