I am trying to trace my husbands ancestors but I am interested in Amy as there is a rumour that she went to America to work as a nanny for doris day's son.

Her mother's maiden name was Smith born in 1900's, I don't know her first name and her father's name was George Baker born in 1899 or there abouts in Salisbury Wiltshire. She had or has 6 siblings.

If anyone could help me I would be very grateful.

This looks like the George Baker you mention in the 1911 census with his parents and siblings:-

1911 census transcription details for: 20 Cold Harbour Lane Salisbury

BAKER, George Son M 12 1899 School Salisbury Wilts

However I can't find a marriage for him to anyone called Smith in Wiltshire.

I. too, can't find a birth of an Amy Baker with mother's name Smith anytime in the 1930's in Wiltshire.

You must do some research on freebmd........and get some factual info

The mother may have been married to someone before BAKER

Which of George's children is your husband's direct line?

This is the only birth I can see for an Amy Baker in Wiltshire in the 1930's:-


Name: BAKER, Amy R
Registration district: Malmesbury
County: Wiltshire
Year of registration: 1935
Quarter of registration: Jan-Feb-Mar
Mother's maiden name: Bond
Volume no: 5A
Page no: 67

However for this record the mother's maiden name DOES seem to be Bond and not Smith as I can see a marriage between a Baker and a Bond and also a birth for the female in this marriage also in the name of Bond.

If this is the correct birth for Amy then I can see about 6 possible siblings for her in the same registration district. Where did you get the surname Smith from for Amy's mother?

There is no record even of George's birth on freebmd, as far as I can see.........

I think it wise to wait for Lynne to return with some further info.......

I cannot remember where I got the mother's maiden name Smith from, so it might be bond. The siblings are Benjamin 1919, John 1920, Irene 1922, Reg 1923, Winifred 1925 and Frederick 1926-1992. Frederick was my husband's son.

Is this really your husband's son .... or did you mean his father ?

Mike

Sorry I meant to say that Frederick Baker is my husbands father. I beleive that this is where I got Smith from. I also have been told that a lot of his family were born in Wiltshire around the Salisbury Devizes area.

Could you please tell me where you found this information as I have been trying to find his birth records again but can't seem to find them. Thank you for doing the research I am very grateful to you and finding the number out for me.

Is the birth above definitely that of your father-in-law?

Does you husband have any factual info about his father and his aunts and uncles?

Reggie

Reggie Report 23 Mar 2013 11:27

There is no birth for a Frederick among the probable siblings of AMY born 1935

Lynne

Lynne Report 23 Mar 2013 12:33

Frederick Baker is definitely my father-in-law and my husband knew some of his aunts and uncles, he was also told about Amy by his eldest brother. As far as I know everything is correct but there may be some mistakes.

There is nothing anywhere on line to back up the story

BUT.........do the research. check it out yourself, and then you'll know..

It's all on freebmd.............

Doesn't you husband know his grandmothers first name, or approximately when she died?

With their first child born towards the end of WW1 it is possible Smith is her maiden name, but she may have been married and widowed during the war and therefore married to George under her married name.

This is the family from the 1911 census in 1901, but no George always assuming the 1911 census is the correct family:

Roselina F Baker
Age: 10
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1891
Relation: Daughter
Father's Name: George Baker
Mother's name: Elizabeth Baker
Gender: Female
Where born: Fisherton Anger, Wiltshire, England

Civil parish: Fisherton Anger
Ecclesiastical parish: Fisherton Anger St Paul
County/Island: Wiltshire
Country: England

Household schedule number: 177
Piece: 1952
Folio: 72
Page Number: 29
Household Members: Name Age
George Baker 38 (butcher)
Elizabeth Baker 37
James G Baker 13
Albert E Baker 12
Roselina F Baker 10
Kathleen Baker 8
Winifred I Baker 4
Victor H Baker 2

Victor appears to be missing in 1911, but they did state 3 children had died with 6 living. So it appears George may have been born after the 1901 census, but certainly after Victors birth in 1899.
