You might want to check out this website - really useful for B-u-S - has Frederick's christening 2/101864, along with Elizabeth (age 4) and William (2) being christened the same day.

Added: there's also a marriage for John George, 2/5/1907, which states his father Frederick is deceased - must have come back to life as he is clearly on the 1911 census ;-)

in my tree my great grandmother was Mary Elizabeth and her sister was Mary Ann. Both appear on census together. At first I thought it was a mistake but I was wrong. They just liked the name Mary

No births registered as given.

Perhaps they just liked the name

GlitterBaby

GlitterBaby Report 23 May 2013 22:03

Probably stating the obvious but have you found birth records as they both might have John as a middle name rather than a first name
