Hi everyone.

Thank you for all your feedback. Rosina Gladys Davies did marry Frederick Garton, and yes she did revert to using her middle name as in the 1911 census.

I'm wondering if she married Frederick Garton and went on to use her middle name..... and for some reason entered her maiden name on the census!

Have you looked on freebmd to try to find a marriage for Rosina's parents?

And are you 100% certain that you have the correct forename for her father?

Hi everyone

I am trying to trace some ancestors. I know Rosina Gladys Davies was born in 1887 in Haverfordwest and her parents were Arthur and Sarah Davies. Arthur was born around 1860 somewhere in Pembrokeshire and Sarah was born around 1862 in Tenby. I am trying to find Sarah's maiden name and who the parents of both Arthur and Sarah were.

Many thanks

Anne
