Strange tree on Ancestry has the mother of Catherine as Henrietta but does not show father

Gives that Henrietta dies in 1946 in Hull

I think Thomas Herbert might be someone else:

Record Type: Baptism
Baptism Date: 29 Jan 1882
Father's Name: Thomas James Stratton - a baker

That tree on Ancestry also claims there is another son William Henry b 1908 and dies in 1974

James Thomas dies in 1907

MarieCeleste

MarieCeleste Report 28 Feb 2013 21:03

Thomas James Stratton appeared to be a baker up to his death so it's extremely unlikely that he would be the nightwatchman on the 1903 marriage.

I think Phyllis needs to clarify his background and who he really is in order to find out what became of him.

Make of this what you will.

One tree has Henrietta marrying twice more.
However, the 2nd marriage is in the name of Kerr not Stratton so not sure it's the same lady.



Marriage to George Carter 13 Sept 1913
Sculcoates Register Office, Hull


Marriage to William Turner Devine 26 Dec 1917
Sculcoates Register Office, Hull



I also suspect that Thomas Stratton and Thomas Herbert Stratton are 2 different people

A big if but if this is the son then there is this record
