I can't see him I'm afraid. There are a few others with the same name but their children aren't those you gave.
I'm sure someone will be able to help soon though.

Hello Aimee, welcome to GR.

There will be loads of people able to help you, but they will need more information, if you have it.

Do you have any idea when Frederick or any of his children were born? When did he die, do you know roughly? Who was the eldest child? If you know that, you might be able to work back to a year before and look for Frederick's marriage... The more information you can provide the more likely you are to find... also try googling *free BMD* and you can look up much of the information yourself, free of charge.

Also, you might be better putting all this on the *trying to find* message board... people who are able to help you are more likely to look on there.

Good luck.... this will become obsessive!

Edit...... as you have access to the 1901 census, that will give you the ages of the children... try looking on free bmd from roughly a year before the eldest was born.... but Williams is a hard one... I know, I have Williams and Jones galore in my hubbie's tree! xxx
