Annabel Report 14 Dec 2012 00:01

Hi again thank you for your input and views

William and Elizabeth were married August the 9th 1903 both aged 20,
witnesses Charles Thomas French who was Elizabeth's father and a Emily Jones
my friend as all the information on the French family but nothing on Williams family, with a surname like Jones it's like looking for needle in a hay stack. been going though most of the census looking for names George, Emily , William Jones in the London, Middlesex areas but nothing matches up

if he was 20 August in 1903, and 28 in the 1911 census what year was he born,

Elizabeth Maud French was born May 7th 1883

Thank you all Annabel

I think this is the William John that you found the christening for in 1891 and his parents in 1881. However his father was a boot seller in 1881 but he did die fairly young

If you wish to progress this enquiry, it would be worth investing in the birth cert.

You must take into account the location, and not just latch on to anyone with the name of roughly the right age.


Reggie Report 14 Dec 2012 09:49

I gave you info about the time-scale for his birth in an earlier post.

To reiterate, and elaborate..............he was born NO LATER than 31st March 1883.........and AFTER 31st March 1882

This assumes that he gave accurate age info on the census form
