Born exactly 20 years before me

Yes, it is him, Frederick Horatio Murray Barley the 1911 census living with father Percy etc. He did marry Rosa Warren and produced my father (Ernest Murray Barley) and a daughter (Lorna Alice). Fdrk and Rosa divorced in 1926 and then in 1928 he married ElsieYoung in Guildford. Looks like I have wrongly attributed the children, Doris, Jean and Ray to this Barley/Young marriage but that in fact they belong to the Robert Barley/Doris Young marriage, which makes sense of the firstborn daughter's name. If Frdk and Elsie had no issue, then I have no reason for further search for living relatives!!

PS 'born exactly 20 years before me' makes you 112???


Gillian Report 5 Feb 2013 18:23

Sorry, 72!!!

Not until March 20th!!!!!

You may have to consider that Elsie had also been married before, in which case, the MMN on any birth reg'n would not have been Young.

What does MMN stand for? I'm not really interested in Elsie's background, only whether she and Frederick, who is in my direct line, had children which they don't seem to have done.

Mother's maiden name

If you buy their marriage cert, you'll find out if she'd been married before.

If she had, your search for possible children will be made using her maiden name

Oh, I see, of course, that makes perfect sense!
Thank you for the time you have taken to bother with all my queries. I have learnt a lot!

Best wishes
