Is it definitely butcher, not boot maker, as I can find a possible boot maker father....

GlitterBaby

GlitterBaby Report 28 Mar 2013 14:18

Think the witnesses might be Charles Turner, age 30, and Mary Jane Harding, age 27, who married in 1881 who is listed as Gunner R G and address given as R G Barracks

GlitterBaby

GlitterBaby Report 28 Mar 2013 14:19

Yes it is butcher

patchem

patchem Report 28 Mar 2013 14:19

Forget about the boot maker family, still around in 1901 etc.

I have found surnames 'Barbot' and Barbotte' in censuses with Country of birth 'France'; wondering whether William was born in France? Just a thought.....!

The wedding that Londonbelle and Gliterbaby posted for William and Elsie was in 1888 in Woolwich - but he was dead by then in Burma???

Added:
It is actually 1882.
