I am looking for descendents of my grandfathers first marriage. Two of his daughters Eliza and Mary Hiett married two brothers Richard and Henry Knighton around the 1920s. Any help would be welcome. Cliff Hiett :-)

Children:- 4, 3 living and 1 died!

States married for 7 years (abt.1904) but he may not have actually married Annie. He was stlll with Eliza in 1901 and that time divorce was very expensive so they may just have said they were married??

Any idea what Annie Louise's maiden name was?

His first wife was Eliza Harper with whom he had five children, two who died in infancy.
His second wife was Annie Louise Goodwin who had eleven children the first William born 1905, the same year as his last child with Eliza but he died the same year.
Strangely his tenth child with Annie was registered as Eliza's child in 1921.
