I have since found out that this Joseph Carr is definitely my gt grandfather, his father was also Joseph Carr and was b 1864 Brompton Kent, his father again was a Joseph Carr and was b 1842 Scotland. Joseph Carr b 1864 married a Mary J, don't know her surname can anyone help with any info on any of these people ? I have found on GR member who has 2 of these Joseph's on her tree but am having trouble making contact with her :-(
Thanks for any help you can give :-)

Since when? Since a previous post about him?

Look for marriage info on freebmd.....or buy the 1889 birth cert for the mother's name

You have not deleted the other thread...it is still on the boards.

Don't delete it now........a lot of people put in time and effort to try to help you on it

If you have his birth cert, how is it that you don't know his mother's maiden name?

Hmmm, that's strange as I can't find other thread on here now....

I have his marriage certificate and census not birth certificate

Jan the thread isn't there I have looked on my previous threads and it has been deleted which I did earlier, reason being as I had all that information.

Petra, just for future ref, it's not a good idea to delete threads which contain useful info, as that way people end up repeating research - better to add to the original thread,
But what's done is done!
What do you mean by 'any info'?

Jan thank you as Hunnam is one of the maiden names I came up with.

This is only the second time I have used the message boards so am a bit of a newby at them, now I know you can just add to an old thread about someone I will do that in future.
Do you know whose tree Mary Jane Hunnam is on so I may contact them ?

Thank you for all the information you have given me above, I have that same information.
I think what I am now trying to do is trace any information on Joseph Carr b 1842 in Scotland he married a Ellen Julia Sullivan in 1863

You could do with his marriage cert to establish father's name.
