Julie Report 3 Dec 2012 19:24

I have been difficulties in tracing my mother's side of the family. I only know that my grandmother Rhoda Gill gave birth to my mother Madeline in Richmond Surrey in 1928, I'm not even sure how old my grandmother was then, although she may have been around 38ish. I have got my grandmothers death cert from old documents we found, but I cannot trace a birth register for her. It stated on the cert that she was the widow of Sam Rayne and I have now got the marriage cert dated 1931. It states that Sam's father was James Rayne and Rhoda's father was Frederick Gill. However, after searching all records I cannot find anything else. I have no idea where Frederick or James originated from.

Can anyone point me in the right direction. I really don't know where to start. The marriage cert states that James was a retired sea captain but I cannot read what it says for Frederick. I have looked on census but nothing.

Kind regards
Julie

If this is her death then she was born c1890. Does this tie in with her age at marriage?

Marriages Jun 1887

NB...
Probably NOT this couple, as this Frederick and Rhoda are still in Devon in 1901, without a daughter Rhoda.

Will leave for elimination purposes.

Thank you all so very much, however I am a little confused now. If I am reading all these right.... it is saying there are three different Rhoda Gills, I think!!!

How do I find out the right one to me. My mother had no father named on her birth certificate so I have no link there. It seems very easy to get the wrong one, which I have done before.

You are all great

Julie :-)

This is the only Sam Rayne/Raine I can find for time.

His twin brother (??) is still around years later.

The witness names on the marriage certificate are really hard to read but they look like J I cannot decipher the whole forename but the surname looks like Tattershall and M Anne Strakell. But it is really hard to read, so this may be incorrect.

The Sam and James Rayne are really becoming a mystery. The marriage cert and Rhoda's death cert spell it Rayne.

Meant to say. The other odd thing is that on the 1911 census with Dora Gill it states her as a widow, yet on the marriage cert it state Frederick Gill's occupation as Foreman at ...........????? which I cannot read

The age of Sam on the marriage cert looks like either 47 or 41 years. Rhoda is definately 41
