Hi ... I have posted the below message on another board and someone suggested contacting you to see if you can help as it relates to Winchester. I would love to know if Frances Martha died or re-married. Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you. Gail

James Racketts Hobday married Frances Martha Farmer (b1872) in 1888 in Winchester and they had 2 children - Frances 1889 and James 1891. (All are together on 1891 census)
James Senior then married Eva Hiscock 1899 in Winchester. He and Eva are together with their children and Frances - Frances Martha' daughter. (James junior died in 1893). But I cannot find Frances Martha anywhere. Did she die? Did she re-marry? I cannot find details for either.
Any help solving this mystery greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Thank you Wendy.
This might be very useful to me one day.

I have spent hours there myself, but when back home there always seems something else that needs following up.

I visit this office regularly. If anyone has any Hampshire look-ups I can help with, let me know.
