Hi Sharon, didn't you have a previous thread about this family?

Here it is

I'll copy your request to that one. Reason being that it helps us enormously if we have all the background info in one place - then we can see what's already been found so we don't go over old ground. :-)

Hi - I've been researching my grandfather Leslie Norman Wells, born in Wymondham, Norfolk in 1899 (I have his birth certificate). His mother was Harriet Laura Wells also born in Wymondham, Norfolk in 1878 (parents George and Hannah Wells). My grandfather was illegitimate. At some point Harriet married an Alexander Morrison and they started calling themselves Mr and Mrs Morrison-Wells. I understand that they went to live in South Africa but I'm interested in finding details about their marriage as this will tell me whether my grandfather was education in England or abroad. Any help would be much appreciated.
