There are births for James Mann with mmn Mann


James Report 25 Aug 2013 21:01

There was definitely a Charles, maybe that was a middle name


patchem Report 25 Aug 2013 22:19

Was the birth in Norfolk - as there is no birth for Stewart/Mann showing there at all.?

Birth Date: abt 1898
Date of Registration: Sep 1962
Age at Death: 64

Inferred County: Norfolk
Volume: 4b

Have you bought the marriage certificate please? Is it possible that John had been married before and the children were from his first marriage?


James Report 26 Aug 2013 17:34

John was born in Plockton, on the West Coast of Scotland.
He joined the Army in 1914,Firstly the SeaforthHighlanders and then another Battalion. Their son was definitely called Charles. He might well have been born when John was in the Army. I am going to get a marriage cert to see if he was still in the forces in 1938.
