He didn't mess around.

There's always a chance that C A A Hankins was female but Cyril fits and is in the correct area, so I think he's the one.

from the other thread so that things are together

how about this one - dob's notoriously inaccurate on death certs. How old was she on her marriage (even then she could have been telling porkies)

I hope when the cert arrives it gives fathers name and occ. !


that one fits with a dec qtr 1904 birth


looking back at your original thread that is Jessie's address at Joan's birth


MrsBucketBouquet Report 3 Apr 2011 18:02

Oh my word! LancashireAnn....I never thought to look at the 1911 census address!
You clever girl you lol Thankyou!

It's a bit odd thats she's down as Domestic servant though at her parents address...

Maybe Mr Cyril Arthur Andrew Hankins (who reg Joans birth) diddnt know that was her parents house?
The mind boggles to think what poor ol Jessie was thinking and feeling at that time.bless her.

I'm chewing mr. Posties hand off every day waiting for the birth and Marriage certs to arrive lol

Watch this space....

...and yes we have the right ones.
Roy has no Fathers name and Jessie is his Mother.

Jessie DID marry William Edward Sadler in 1944 her age was 39.

Her Father was John Greenall a boot and shoe warehouseman(deseased)
So everything fits.

What a journey that was! From knowing nothing to what we have now...phew!

I have Jessie Sadler dying in 1978 so will tell Joan.

We have talked to Joan about her half Brother Roy and she would like us to try and find him.
Whats the next step for that?

BTW I would like to thank everyone on here that has helped me sort this out. Without all of you i couldnt have done it....THANKYOU x

ps...Mr Postie survived lol

BatMansDaughter Report 7 Apr 2011 18:13

BatMansDaughter Report 7 Apr 2011 18:23

PM'ing possible children of Roy.


MrsBucketBouquet Report 7 Apr 2011 18:37

Got all that thanks Dee....

That looks very promising!..Roy sadler!

Gerri x


BatMansDaughter Report 7 Apr 2011 18:41

Makes sense that he changed his surname, Mum married when he was 2 so Mr Sadler became his father.

If Roy is going to be difficult to find I think the daughter will be the best avenue....... I wouldn't think there would be too many people of the same name.

MrsBucketBouquet Report 7 Apr 2011 18:49

The last set of twins in my Family were my Grandad had twin Sisters.Rose and Violet b1889.

These twins are Mia and Cara.
They are in thier own sacks but share the one placenta. Mia hasnt much fluid in her sack at the moment and they are concerned....
On Tuesday docs will decide what to do....either...laser the placenta into two (maybe not cos theres not much room) or...deliver them by c section...or keep her in and try to keep them where they are for one more week.
Due date is 4th July.
They wiegh abt 3pound each at the moment.
