Shannette, I don't have Birkenhead, but he's not in Warwickshire. I won't be able to find a death before 1866.

Hi Tracey Sorry to bother you yet again but could you help me with another mystery I have. My great grandfather is called Robert W Fitt married to Jane Fitt nee French he was born c1845 in Birmingham and profession was a compositor according to the 1891 census for Kensington London. His children were Lucy, Emily and Nelson. His father's name was Thomas Fitt on his marriage certificate to Jane, (married in Swansea Wales) Now all I can find is a Robert Fitt married to Sarah I on the 1881 census with children Amy & Lily same birth place and profession. Do you think you could possibly find a birth for him or any other census detail prior to 1881 I am beginning to wonder if he is a bigamist as my grandfather Nelson was a bit of a gay blade. I hope you can help me with this one too. Cheers Sheila

Sorry Helen, you will have to search the GRO registers for this one. They did have a son, according to the 1861 census, in 1844 in North Bovey. You should start there. 1851 Richard Townsend Ide, Devonshire, England Male 40 Mary Townsend Chagford, Devonshire, England Female 30 Henry Townsend North Bovey, Devonshire, England Male 8 William Townsend North Bovey, Devonshire, England Male 5 John Townsend Kingstenton, Devonshire, England Male 3 Ide St. Thomas, Devonshire

Hi Tracy. I wonder if you can solve a problem that has been taxing me for years? I have been trying to trace the marriage of my Gt. G.father John or Jno COOK who was born in Whitehaven in 1852. and Mary Ann BROOKS born in Rockbeer Devon in 1849. John moved with his family to Barnes in Surrey between 1852 and 1857 they lived at Green Farm. I can find them on all of the Census records but can find no record of his marriage. In 1881 John and his wife lived in Battersea with their two sons Frank aged 6 ( my Grandfather) and George aged 5. I suppose that there is a chance that they were married in Devon but I have searched all of the records I can without any luck. Please let me know if you need any further info. Many thanks Brian, living in Sussex England.

Brian, I've been through every John Cook and Mary (Ann) Brooks marriage between 1870 and 1881 and can't find a match. There are some with the same page numbers, but wrong year or right year but wrong quarter or page. This was the closest I got... Marriage Mar 1872 Brooks Mary Ann Portsea Island.2b 532 Cook John Portsea Island.2b 533
