Hi, thanks for response. I feel sure this is George. I knew George's second wife Ellen (nee Mills) who had also been married before but I did not know her previous married name.

Have you tried to find the second marriage?

It would give some time-scale...............

Were there any children from the second marriage?

If the census is the right George, he was born between 1st April 1907 and 31st March 1908.

I have just realised a mistake on my part, very sorry!
My apologies . My mother's brother Wilfred was married to an Iris - Iris Fleet.
This now leaves me puzzled as to the name of George's first wife. :-0

Hi, the list above shows my mother's brothers and sisters, but her name is not listed. My mother Elsie Mary White wasnt born until 7/03/1915
George may have married elsewhere, I recall when I was very young he was in the army and probably in the army when he married. i just assumed he was married in Plymouth. I also recall he died at Christmas, this would match the record above
It would seem likely my mother had his birth year wrong and it was 1908 not 1907, unfortunately I have no exact date, only the possible year.
My grandparents were Henry Albert White (although he used his first two names in reverse, I.e. Albert Henry. Born 10/06/1871 died 24/05/1953 My grandmother was Emily Ellen nee Witheridge, born 23/1011878 died 16/02/1953
Some of the dates above differ, my Uncle Arthur's birthday was 16/94/1910.
My mother has Ivy's birthdate as 24/08/1903. And her brother Alberts birthdate as 5/6/1897.
I do appreciate your assistance.

There are marriages of White's to Iris's in Plymouth.
In 1941 of Albert C G White and also of Francis J White (to different Iris's).

Could the marriage have been elsewhere?

I cannot see a death in 1979 to confirm that birthdate.
I will post the two most obvious;

Frederick George White
Birth Date: 1 Mar 1907
Date of Registration: Oct-Nov-Dec 1980
Age at Death: 73
Registration district: Plymouth
Inferred County: Devon

George White
Birth Date: 28 Jan 1908
Date of Registration: Oct-Nov-Dec 1978
Age at Death: 70
Registration district: Plymouth
Inferred County: Devon
Volume: 21
Page: 1839

Is there a possibility that your Mother mixed up his birth and/or death dates with those of another brother?
Thanks

The two other people with George's name in their tree are related to me. They copied the information from my tree. :-)

I have a feeling George's first wife could have been called Iris.

George white was my mother's brother. According to my late mother he was born 1907. He died 25 December 1979 at Plymouth. His second wife was called Ellen. I do not know what her maiden name was. My mother said she believed he had a daughter by his first wife.

Have you contacted all the people who have him in their trees on here?
They may be living relatives.

Added:
One of them is you under a different name, so there are 2 people who you could try to contact.

George was married and divorced. Would like to find any living relatives from George's first marriage in Plymouth, Devon.
