Born in Germany C1871, but 1911 Census says British Subject. Married an Alice Huntly 1898 and then a Kate Bowman nee Huntly in 1911, Streatham London.

Two twin daughters by first wife, Emma Violet and Lilian Olive in 1906. Unable to pick up the trail.

Possibly a link to Depmold, Lippe Germany where Kate's son Roy died in 1952

Any assistant would be appreciated.

What are you actually hoping for?

His father (if known) will be named on either of the man's marriage certs

Reggie

Were his wives related to each other?

Where were the twin girls born?

It would help if you posted the 1911 census for reference

He used different forename info for his marriages, which probably explains how he was able to marry his sister-in-law.

Reggie

Reggie Report 14 Jun 2013 10:25

In 1911, he clearly states that his nationality is German.

Thank you everyone for the information, I knew a fresh pair of eyes would find the links, especially for the death of Charles Albert or Albert Charles and picking up on one of the twins.

Much appreciated.
