My great uncle James Stevens was born in St Ives, Cornwall in 1881. He married Elizabeth Quick and I believe they had four children, Elizabeth,Dorothy, Wilmot and Honor. I am trying to find out what happened to the four children .

How you looked on FreeBMD for any possible marriages or even deaths

GlitterBaby

GlitterBaby Report 19 Mar 2013 21:37

If they stayed in the Penzance area then those names do not match up to any possible births

How have you arrived at the names of the children

NO, this looks to be the one that died:-

.........................

and this is probably the birth of Wilmot:-

David Report 19 Mar 2013 21:55

I believe they married in 1907. James was a ship's master. I am aware that there are quite a few Stevens/Quick records for the St Ives area.
The children's names have been passed to me by one of my relations.
