You got there before me!

Off to rest my eyes and get dressed now.

Its at times like this that I thank my ancestors for having unusual names. Nothing as common as Wilson in my lot!

Wilson 1953 AMJ Janet M mmn Lavender - Surrey N W

Could we have two Wilson/Lavender marriages or did they move. It certainly looks like Dad only came home every 3 years (lol).

Update:
Marriage
1953 AMJ Edith Lavender - Eric C Willson (note ll) - Thanet. Could birth be a typo?

Update
The postman arrived laden with certificates – so here’s the first a three updates

Confirmation of William Armstrong’s birth

Born 30th May 1910 at 3 Turner Street Amble
Father: Rendel Armstrong – Fireman on a Boat

This now confirms William’s birth details and that to join the army he increased his age by one year – not unusual.

The tree has been updated with all this information - so please take a look. Our efforts are now concentrating on identifying the (numerous) children of Theresa Silmon and her two husbands: for details see the tree.

A not so easy task as four, possibly five, children were born prior to mothers maiden name appearing in the registers. Some names have been eliminated due to closeness of confirmed births or certificates purchased that have confirmed that assumptions were just that – assumptions!!

We have more certificates on order to confirm links – which are due later this week.

Thanks to everyone for your support, encouragement and research help – this has been invaluable in helping identify new lines of investigation.

If you'd like to see the tree please PM me.

Many thanks

With regards the Barrow marriage/link... if there's anything you need looking up, I'm there... It would be good to be able to contribute something to the project. Just let me know, but allow at least 10 days as I'm away.
