Really glad you seem to have found the right family and also her first marriage - even though it wasn't to a Hughes.

I think the only safe way forward is to buy the marriage cert of Ernest J Poole and see what it says as to her father's name and occupation.

Nicola

Nicola Report 7 Apr 2013 16:37

The informant was her daughter Stella Smith

Nicola

Nicola Report 7 Apr 2013 16:34

I do think Hughes must be a mistake I found Houlding marriage yesterday and the children's names fit :)

KathleenBell

KathleenBell Report 7 Apr 2013 16:33

The date of birth on a death certificate can't be taken as definitely correct as the informant might not be certain.

There is no birth of anyone called Hose that would fit with that date of birth.

The Stella and Patrick you mention would certainly seem to have the surname Houlding as the marriage of Stella and death with the surname Smith seems to confirm what you already knew of them.

MarieCeleste Report 7 Apr 2013 16:31

That birth date on the baptism is just too close to the date on the death cert.

Did she lop a few years off her age? Of course the info on the death record is only as good as the informant's knowledge at the time.

It could well be!!

Between the wars a lot of marriages broke up and the people involved just went on to either live with or marry (bigamously) another partner because divorce was almost impossible to get.

Snap Kath. :-)


I wonder if this is her first husband's death? 14 years after she married her second!! Could that be the reason she called herself Hughes?
