In trying to trace my nan's parents. My nan's name is Audrey may Railton. She was born in December 1921 in Milton Regis, kent. Her maiden name was tummon. Her mothers maiden name is Mann. I'm not sure about my nan's fathers first name.

Hello Richard, the way to be 100% sure about Audrey May's parents is to order her birth certificate.

England & Wales, Birth Index, 1916-2005
Name: Audrey M Tummon
Mother's Maiden Surname: Mann
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1925
Registration District: Milton
Inferred County: Surrey
Volume Number: 2a
Page Number: 1601

You say she was born Dec 1921 but it looks more likely she was born late 1924 going by this registration.

It will cost £9.25 to order the certificate from General Register Office (GRO)

It looks like Harold and Esther separated before he died as there is a daughter born in 1928 registered in the name of both Tummon and Bassant

There is also another child born 1929 from the 2nd marriage

So Harold's last name is tummon and Esther's last name is bassant. So where does my nan's mums maiden name (Mann) fit in

Richard John

Richard John Report 20 Jul 2013 02:41

So bassant is the second married name of esther

jax Report 20 Jul 2013 02:52

Yes Esther and Harold Married in 1908...They separated at some point and Harold moved back to Sheffield and died in 1929

Esther then married Cyril Bassant in 1929
