Thanks Emma. I am sure I will get there. This one is an important one for me and I won't give up on her. Maybe leaving her for now is the best way forward, unless something else appears. Thanks again. xx

Hi Kathleen For which cert? Assuming we are on the wrong cert ordered it was for birth Annie Mowbray St James Clerkenwell Oct 1848 For the Herbert connection it was birth of Florence Eliza Herbert Lambeth Church 2nd (think just Lambeth on index) April 1876 xx

Sorry Marie, I must have got confused. I thought the wrong certificate you had received was for Florence Eliza Herbert. Kath. x

Hi Kathleen Florence Eliza Herberts birth cert may still be the wrong one but I have just hit a mental brick wall where she is concerned!!! She is the mother of a deeply loved grandfather and his family is the reason why I started this to begin with!!!!! However, much as I try I just can't seem to make the ultimate connection with her to her father pre marriage. If it is her birth cert if only he had used his middle name. Hey ho.

Don't know if it helps or confuses more, but there is this birth registration:- Annie Maude Mowbray Sept. qtr. 1848, Kensington III, 347 Kath. x

Thanks Kathleen I will look into that. I kind of took an educated guess on the Mowbray one that had always paid off in the past but I suppose the deeper you go into this the harder it is to make assumptions. Do appreciate your help will def follow it through xx

Hi Marie Sorry, I posted the first reply to your query and then promptly disappeared. Can I just clarify - - You know the Florence Eliza Smith in 1901 is your one. - You have a marriage certificate for Florence and George Charles Smith which you know is correct, because the name Keylock is on it. - You have a birth certificate for a Florence Eliza Herbert which you are not sure is the correct one. - You have found a family on the 1891, but are not sure if they are correct. - You have found Florence's Dad on the 1851, with the name Keylock in evidence. Am I right so far? Now - questions - - Do you know any of Florence's siblings' names for sure? - Do you know Florence's Mother's name for sure? - Do you have a marriage certificate for Florence's parents? - in 1891, the Mother's name is Eliza. Is that the Mother's name on the birth certificate you have for Florence? - Do you have any idea where the name Keylock comes from? Sorry to lay it all out like that, but I am trying to get it sorted in my head, so I can try to help. Suzy

Hi Suzy Thanks for replying. All your clarifications are spot on! Ok now for the questions!!!; I don't know any of Florences' siblings names for sure, family say they think there were at least three sisters Kate, Fanny and Lizzie. That matches what is on the census's which is part of reason I linked Florence to them. Incidentally one of Florences' witnesses to her wedding was a K Herbert who I just assume is Kate. Florences mother I suppose not sure 100%. I have couple of possible marriages written down (the major one being to Eliza Long even before I received the birth cert) but John wasn't using the Keylock in the indexes so it's in my to do box but wanted to try and flesh things out a bit before taking that route. Think I was under the impression that Florences' certificate would solve the mystery!!!!! Yes the birth cert for Florence says her mother is Eliza Herbert nee Long. My belief is that the name Keylock comes from Johns' mother who I think was Ann Keylock before she married Johns' dad Daniel Herbert. I hope I've made sense!!!!

Yep I'm on the same trail did say Keylock Ok this must be the 1881 you looked at Head a Cab Driver John street Catherine Herbert abt 1880 Lambeth, Surrey, England Daughter 6 John St, Lambeth, London, England Eliza Herbert abt 1850 Southwalk, Surrey, England Wife 6 John St, Lambeth, London, England Florance Herbert abt 1877 Lambeth, Surrey, England Daughter 6 John St, Lambeth, London, England George Herbert abt 1875 Lambeth, Surrey, England Son 6 John St, Lambeth, London, England Heaty Herbert abt 1879 Lambeth, Surrey, England Daughter 6 John St, Lambeth, London, England John Herbert abt 1851 Southwalk, Surrey, England Head 6 John St, Lambeth, London, England Now there are only a couple of John Herberts born Lambeth 1849-1852 so you could eliminate by tracing both Zoe
