I am trying to find the parents of Cornelius J Lynch b1920 Stepney, London, England. I have found his birth and his mothers maiden name was Rhein but unfortunately have not found anything else. Was wondering if anyone can throw any light on this, I have been told that there were possible links to Lancashire and Yorkshire.
Regards
Carolyn

If the mmn was Rhein then this would look to be a possible sibling:-

Thanks Maddie this looks like the marriage I was looking for. I was told that Cornelius was born in east London and being as the marriage took place there it seems likely that this is the one.
Kind regards
Carolyn

Than you Catherine for looking for me,

Catherine

Catherine Report 23 Jul 2013 15:19

As I said earlier the Cornelius born Stepney with mmn Rhein does not have a middle name so are you absolutely sure that this is the correct one????

If he had a middle name beginning with J then he wasn't born in Stepney and mmn would not be Rhein but Bray????

....................we need to know which is the correct one first.
