William & Eliza Perrin

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Nadine Report 1 Oct 2012 18:04

Eliza Perrin married George Felton in 1899.

William Perrin (Eliza's brother) married Laura Felton in 1903.

George Felton had a sister called Laura who was born in 1877 and from what i can see in the 1911 census Laura Perrin (nee Felton) was born around 1878.

From what i can see brother and sister married brother and sister.. can anyone confirm this??

It's looking possible, but it would be best to purchase the MC's to confirm. If the occupation and name of the father is the same, then you're probably correct.
for certificates at £9.25.

And welcome to GR and the Boards :-D

Thank you Detective!! :-D


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 1 Oct 2012 18:56

Just looked at one of the MC which Helen found – well done, didn’t come up earlier

George Felton m Eliza Perrin in 1899

George Felton’s father Edward was a labourer
Eliza Perrin’s father James was a Butcher

The witnesses where George Perrin and Laura Felton

Exactly the same details for the William Perrin and Laura Felton marriage, except that the witnesses were George and Eliza Felton

That seems conclusive to me

Detective thats fantastic! How did you find out these details? Just come across another situation like the above.

Many Thanks

Those particular images are part of the London Metropolitan Archive collection on Ancestry.

Once found, as Helen did on this occassion, its a case of looking at the image itself after having looked at the transcription. ;-)
