i have a marriage for a

Morris Fredrick H Burder Haverfordwest 11a 1901

as you see the wifes name is Burder, i did the look up via vol. and page
ladies name is Gwendoled, i not ever heard of a name like that and i think
it may be something else, so i tried Gwendolen, Gwendolyn and Gwedolin
as a birth look up with surname burder but, nothing

Marriages Mar 1934 (>99%)
Burder Gwendoled Morris Haverfordwest 11a 1901
Morris Fredrick H Burder Haverfordwest 11a 1901

Children of the marriage clearly registered with MMN BURDER

Perhaps the woman was born somewhere outside the UK

Maybe the Haverfordwest registrar / clerk was having a bad day when the names were transcribed to the GRO list, as there is a correction on freeBMD for the other lady on that page, who should be Winifred.

On the 1911 census household image Gwene BURDER is placed in age order after her sister Mary and before her younger brother Robert....all born Pembroke Dock, so could this be her known by her 3rd Christian name?

Births Mar 1908

Burder Eliza Winifred G ...Pembroke 11a 1418
