I am looking for marriage of William Doubleday to Joanna Bordoli lived in Leicester but not sure where William came from. It could have been have been Nottinghamshire


Adeline Report 12 Jun 2013 15:42

A search would be easier if you are able to say roughly when the marriage would have taken place


I can see a tree on Ancestry that gives Johanna's birth year as 1827

Are you sure they did marry?

The 1861 census shows Joanna Doubleday, status married, and her daughters - but no William in the household. The 1871 census shows William, born Nottingham, as a lodger in Leicester described as unmarried.

Two of the daughters, Alice and Pamela, are in the Leicester workhouse in 1871 surname Bardoli even though they were registered at birth as Doubleday.

Hello Carol, what info does it give about William on the girls birth certificate? e.g. occupation, address.
