John Gadd 1873 Reigate, Surrey

DazedConfused Report 9 Apr 2014 16:24

I am almost tearing my hair out!!!!!

John married Louie Hill in 1895 and she died same year giving birth to their daughter Elsie.

On 1901 census has been found as a Widower with his daughter age 5.

1911 census - now this is my problem - he has written on his marriage deatials next to his name 16 years (which is how long he would have been married to Louie) and next to Emily his wife 7 years (which tallies with the birth of their son Jack.
I cannot find a marriage for him to an Emily.

On FreeBMD there are only 3 entries for the marriage and try as I might I cannot find the fourth name. I do not think he married Rose Emily Stanford as she is born in E. Grinstead and not Reigate.
On Ancestry Surrey Marriages no marriage in 1904 for a John with father WIlliam to any girl with the name Emily anywhere.

Can anyone help with the missing bride from this record. Will be back later, off to start dinner.

Thank you
Chris :-)

I found 3 marriages on GR for John Gadd to Emily between the 2 census records you mentioned.

1) Emily Stevenson in 1903 in Staffordshire
2) Emily Cooper in 1906 in Sussex
3) Emily Billington in 1909 in Islington, London

Nothing in Surrey

It would have helped if you'd given details of the marriage you referred to..............rather than my having to look for it

Marriages Mar 1904 (>99%)
Gadd John Reigate 2a 259
Moll Henry Edward Reigate 2a 259
Stanford Rose Reigate 2a 259

Who did Henry Moll marry?

Have you looked for him with a wife in 1911?

Yes it was Emily Wheatley - I had looked and Jacks middle name for some reason just did not register.

Rose Stanford married Edward Moll and there is an excellent tree on Ancestry complete with pictures of this couple who emigrated to Canada.

Thank you all for that, am sitting here slapping my forehead!!!

Update - have now submitted a correction to the records on FreeBMD. This should when amended filter through to all the other genealogical sites who use :-)
