Maybe the correct Percy...?

Births Sep 1879
Whitehead Percy Alfred Thanet 2a 873

In 1901 Percy may be the one shown as Percy Whitehead b. Margate

If you follow that person back in census, it looks like he was a Percy A.

Any help would be wonderful,

NEAL(E) from Horsmonden

WHIBLEY from Brenchley

Your best bet would be to get your maternal grandmother Edith Mary Whitehead birth cert........... that would confirm her fathers name and mothers maiden name and help you to trace the correct line of your family.



Jennifer Report 20 Oct 2008 22:13

Thanks to Ellies Aunt I have lots of info from Brookland. Now stuck with maternal grandmother Edith Mary Whitehead b 6th Oct 1910 (registered 2a/959) Thanet d Nov 1975 (registered 16/1800)
Possibly her dad is called George Whitehead who I think died after 1941.
Brother called George Whitehead and sister called Elsie Whitehead not sure who is eldest but Elisie died this year (suffered with demetia so couldn't ask her anything before she died)
Edith Married Charles H Reynolds in 1932 East Ashford District.

Any help really appreciated ;)

I am looking for WELCH and GRAY/GREY especially the Maidstone area. I found a baptism for Charles WELCHGRAY Maidstone c1805 but I believe the parents to have been William Welch and Jane Gray. Have searched for a marriage for them but no luck so far.



BrianW Report 17 Oct 2008 08:10

Looking for the marriage of a Phobe (sic) to John Sherwood from Lympne near Hythe around 1806.

Any Phobe births around 1780 would be a lead, as the name (esp. with that spelling) seems uncommon.

This is the volume and page no. for Rebecca Colemans marriage in 1852......... if you order the cert. it will confirm her husbands fathers name. Unfortunatly the groom isn`t listed on freeBMD, but if you quote Charles Reynolds groom as ref. checking point you will only be charged £3.00 if it is the wrong one.

Marriages Mar 1852 (>99%)
