She is the only one born in Swansea. There is another born in Cardiff. Is that the one you want? Her father is William.

hI Tracy-Yes please I have a mystery dissapearance-I have a Watson Diston born 1836 in The Gateshead area married to a Isabella Tindale, their third son was born 1865-and Isabella remarried a George Roberts in 1869-but where has Watson gone? Can find no trace of a death for him-or indeed anything? Can find Isabella with George Roberts and her children at the New Debtford Hotel in Gateshead but no Watson. Can you help solve this mystery? Thanks regards Jennifer.

Hi, looking for a marriage between 1914 and 1920 (or slightly later). My Great Grandmother, Eleanor Gillett, married again after her husband George died in 1914. Her maiden name was McMahon. Not sure who she married but would have been in the Liverpool (surrounding area). I don't know if she used Gillett or McMahon when she remarried. Any help appreciated. Carl

Steve, I can't find a Thomas and Elizabeth marrying in Stratton or a James W born there. Stratton is the reg district for Morwenstow. There are too many 'maybe's for me to be certain of who is yours.

Hi Tracy Thanks for your kind offer and if you find this i will eat my hat LOL I'm looking for a CHARLES MARKS born 1818 Newington London and died 20th March 1871 aged 53 at 7, Berkley Street, Lambeth. He Married Isadora Noble at Bethnal Green on 2nd Sept 1866 and was listed as a 'Carver' (calver & Gilder) as a profession. I'm positive he was married before, but i can't find him on any of the census from 41 - 61 I have come across MARKS as being mis-transcribed as Markes/Mankes/Manks/Alarks/Martha !! Annie
