I'd recommend getting a copy of Edwin's second marriage certificate from GRO to at least confirm his father's details.

If we can be sure that we have the right person (because there are a few with that name) then we will have a better chance of finding his first marriage.

Patricia - what else do you know about William? Did he marry? If so - who, when and where?

How did you connect to these people?

Patricia

Patricia Report 27 Feb 2013 20:18

yes I think it will be best to send for a marriage certificate. My connection is just a friend who lived near my family we have know one another for 50 years.
