I did wonder that , although Hance does'nt seem to fit in with her parents being Green ?

jax

jax Report 15 Aug 2012 21:24

Michael Report 15 Aug 2012 21:55

Po ssibly that is what may happened . If i get the marraige cert from .1935.it should give me an accurate age for her .

Michael

Michael Report 11 Sep 2012 20:43

I have obtained the marraige cert for Edith Green and George Atkins in 1935 , it shows her age as 25 in1935 . This ties in with her being born app 1910 , she could be Edith Hance ? . Is there any record of children being born to this couple ?Can anyone assist ?

Who do she name as her father on the cert? Augustas?

Edith Hance's birth appears to be registered twice, which is interesting

Edith's birth is registered once. The other entry is a transcription error.


Michael, how do you know her mother was Henrietta? Did you also order the birth cert?
