Anne Report 25 Feb 2013 16:01

Hi;

My friends great grandparents were a William Beech and Mary Poyner. They were married in 1899 in Wolverhampton. On their marriage certificate it has William as being 21 and Mary as being 22. Williams father it says was a Richard Beech - deceased and Mary's father was a Richard Poyner. Unfortunately I can't find any other details on her parents. There is a Mary Poyner in the 1881 census which could be her but it has her father as a George Poyner.

Can anyone help me please.

Thank you

Anne

This is the right family in 1911 and 1901. I am trying to find out Richard Poyner's wife Sarah A maiden name. Also William Beech (Beach) parents. If it is the Willliam Beach as above, could Sedgley and Pelsall be the same place?

Thank you all for your help. It certainly looks like the marriage is recorded as Richard Pyner.

Any more help would be greatly appreciated.

Was Sarah Rudge born in Newport Pagnell? That is the key to the answer.

Hi Vera

Thanks for that. It looks as if it could be the same family as Sarah's mum and sister were born in Newport Pagnell.

Wondering if I can presume it is the same family and therefore the same Sarah that married Richard

Anyone any ideas.
