Do you think that they has a child in Shropshire and then went back to Blackburn?

If so this could be Betty's birth:-

Betty Bradshaw, mother's maiden name Ball
Dec. qtr. 1928, Newport Sh, 6a, 985

Steph Report 30 Aug 2007 13:17

Was she registered as Betty?

Is Betty short for something else?

Hannah

Hannah Report 30 Aug 2007 13:18

Betty died in Shropshire. I dont know what her new surname was though because she did marry and have children.

That is probably betty's birth because i remember my nana saying that they went to blackburn for her birth. i dont know why they did that.

WayneTracey

WayneTracey Report 30 Aug 2007 13:19

do we know betty's married name when she died? and which recent year was it?

Steph

Steph Report 30 Aug 2007 13:24

I don't have access to the 1901 census.

anyone fancy doing an upadted timeline here so we know what we have?

Hannah

Hannah Report 30 Aug 2007 13:31

Well i think we have Joseph's death -mar qtr 1948 age 52 wellington area.
But that would mean that the birth in blackburn 1904 cant be right

Steph

Steph Report 30 Aug 2007 13:31

Can you also update as to what we need to find.
Thanks

Hannah

Hannah Report 30 Aug 2007 13:39

yes thats all right wayne except the birth of joseph because someone earlier posted his death in 1948 age 52 so that would mean he was born 1896.
