This is the only likely death for Benjamin that I can see.

Looking at the Electoral Registers for Islington, there's a Benjamin Fippard living there from 1945 - 1956, but he appears to be living alone - no Nora.

In Kim's opening post she said they believed Norah was Irish but later says she may have been from America, perhaps she'd been to America?

I'm not saying this is her but it's a possibility:

UK Incoming Passenger Lists, 1878-1960

Name: Norah Manning
Birth Date: abt 1883
Age: 24
Port of Departure: New York, New York, United States
Arrival Date: 17 Aug 1907
Port of Arrival: Queenstown, Ireland
Ship Name: Baltic
Shipping Line: White Star Dominion Line
Official Number: 118101

She was a domestic.

EDIT: There are actually a few trips back and forth across the Atlantic but there's no way of knowing if they were the same girl or several people with the same name born around the same time.

Elizabeth Jane Fippard a widow! died may 26th 1935 probate to John frederick Noakes £480,so this looks like Benjamins wife as she was nee Noakes.



ChristinaS Report 14 Apr 2013 09:55

As I mentioned earlier, it looks like Nora was registered under the name Manning as well as Fippard. This probably means that her parents weren't married. Maybe Benjamin was still married to Elizabeth.

Is the death that I posted for Nora J correct, or is there another one, as if she was born in 1875 she would have been 38 and 40 when the children were born.
If so, she has possibly been married before.

I now have my grandfathers birth cert but im having great difficulty now in finding marriage cert for his mother and father Benjamin Fippard & Nora Josephine Fippard nee Manning. I have a death cert for Nora but cant find a birth cert, she is possibly from America so could have married over there too unsure but thanks so much for all your help

I haven't been able to see the orginal image, but it looks as though Nora was registered under Manning as well as Fippard.

Kim, do you have your G/father's birth certificate ?

This is a must as a starting point if you are unsure of his parents.

His mother may not have married under the name Manning

After looking at marriages I don't think the couple in the two census records I posted earlier are the right ones as this seems to be their marriage and the bride's maiden name is not Manning and I can't find a previous marriage for her):-
