Hi Patrick Fippard was my Grandad, im trying to search his side of the tree with great difficulty. He was born 1915 Fulham London His mothers maiden name was Manning (we believe she was Irish) also her first name may have been Nora(with or without a h). I cant find any marriage records for Manning/Fippard. Also i believe my Great Grandad was called Benjamin but unsure Any help would be greatfully received. We also beleive that my Grandad had a sister not sure if she died before his birth or not???? Thankyou

This looks like your grandad's birth:-

Name: FIPPARD, Patrick C H (think his first middle initial should be G)
Registration district: Fulham
County: London
Year of registration: 1915
Quarter of registration: Oct-Nov-Dec
Mother's maiden name: Manning
Volume no: 1A
Page no: 266

This could be your grandad's sister's birth (perhaps she was named after her mother):-

Name: FIPPARD, Nora I
Registration district: Portsmouth
County: Hampshire
Year of registration: 1913
Quarter of registration: Jan-Feb-Mar
Mother's maiden name: Manning
Volume no: 2B

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):-

Name: FIPPARD, Benjamin
Registration district: St. George in the East
County: London
Year of registration: 1900
Quarter of registration: Jul-Aug-Sep
Spouse's last name: Not available before 1912
Volume no: 1C

MarriageFinder: Benjamin Fippard married one of the following people:

NOAKES, Elizabeth Jane<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
TIEDGEN, Magdalena

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

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


patchem Report 13 Apr 2013 23:04

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.


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.

Births Mar 1913 (>99%)

Fippard Nora I Manning Portsmouth

Mary Report 14 Apr 2013 10:06

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.
