Hi Nicola,

There are two children with the name Jarvis, but mother's name Otty:

Madeline A Jarvis 1911 Oct-Nov-Dec Otty Erpingham Norfolk

Stella S Jarvis 1915 Oct-Nov-Dec Otty Erpingham Norfolk

I couldn't find a marriage between a Jarvis and a Otty, so maybe they were not married. If I where you I would order one of the above certs to find out their parents names,

Hi Vicky,

Thank you for doing the look up for me. It's much appreciated. I think it may be her as i couldn't find her on the census.

Thanks again


Kat Report 3 Feb 2008 18:57

Hello! Anyone able to check the marriage of one Edith Heald to George Horwell. Possible place would be Yorkshire. I am only sure of Edith's year of birth ie 1902 and date of death 24 June 1957. She had one son Kenneth Horwell and I gather a couple of step sons too.

Help me please? This lady is my great grandmother.

Thanks, Kat.

hi Victoria
Just wondering if you could help as i got brain freeze
tryin to find grandfather and siblings Gene or Jean Stewart, James Charlie, Robert or William (Grandfather)23 nov 1923 and sandy but don't think sandy was her real name. Been on scottishpeople found nothing on there any help or point me in the right direction cheers

Hi John,

If you go onto the below website:

You can order the marriage certificate. If you put in the below Volume number and page number it will cost £7.

Volume: 1d
Page: 1883

It will be harder to find children as mother's maiden name didn't appear on the record until 1912. It may be worth searching for people on genes reunited who have Martha or her husband in their tree to see if they have more info.

Also you could get somebody to look for baptisms for any children of Martha and husband in the area that she lived.

Alternatively you could wait until the 1912 census is available online, which won't be for a couple of years yet.

Hope this helps,

Kind regards audrey

Hi Audrey,

Here is the birth of Annie Mason,

Annie Sophia Mason 1907 Jul-Aug-Sep Lambeth Greater London, London, Surrey

So you could order her birth cert to see who her parents were,then I could have a look for a marriage for them,

Hope this helps,



faerykingdom Report 3 Feb 2008 20:57

Hi Kat,

I have looked for a marriage between 1920 - 1940 for a Edith Healds and a George Horwell with no success.

If George was married before with children, maybe Edith was as well. If she married again, itwould be under her marriage name and not her maiden name,

Sorry I couldn't help more,

Avril Report 3 Feb 2008 21:08

Hi Vicky,
if you get a spare couple of minutes I am trying to locate my 3xgreat grandmother Ann Hardman. And any info you can give me for the 1841 census would be great.
Ann was born in Bitterley, Shropshire in 1814. She married my 3X great grandfather John Watkins in 1849 in Ludlow Shropshire. I believe she may have had a son named James Hardman(b1840) before she married John Watkins. I am trying to establish if James was illigitimate or Ann was previously married.
I hope this is enough info?

Many Thanks
