Rose

I think you'll find that COXHEAD is a guess, based on some 'info' from Epping Council

You are quite right about the birth.............don't know what I was thinking of.

Or not thinking, more like!

I got hooked up on the second forename.............

Thanks for putting me straight!

Reggie,

The Sudbury birth is 10 years too late. Either way, there's no Wheeler/Coxhead marriage.

This could be the birth:

I've been trying to research this...........so far without much success.

Daphne's mother's maiden name was Woodcroft, assuming I have the right birth, which I'm pretty sure I have.

There are no recorded siblings, and no Hobbs/Woodcroft marriage

BUT..................

Marriages Sep 1937 (>99%)

Your father was a Hobbs and your maternal grandmother was also? Do you mean paternal? What was Rose's maiden name and when was she born?

Please list maiden names for all the females you mention.

Rose

Am I correct in thinking that you actually have no accurate idea of the surname of the man you are trying to trace?

Please tell us...........

Your mother's full name before marriage

Your father's and mother's birth years

Or, indeed, anything which will actually be helpful...............

And read the bit in the box below my post

Hi,you have posted the name and address of the nurseries,so do you have any information at all. The address in the 50s was in Essex and came under Epping Council,which is how I obtained the name "Coxhead". No other information on names,as I was a cild then and only knew them as Auntie and Uncle, parents of Bill. Rose was sister to my maternal grandmother [ Maud Hobbs],and my parents were Maud and Albert Hobbs, all now deceased
Be great if you do have a connection as I have found other family on this site

Broxbourne is in Hertfordshire...............NOT in Essex

Do some research....get some factual info

Joyce's surname would be useful........or even that of your parents.

And who links you to this man.

Daphne,

The odds of him seeing this message are extremely slim.

Your best option is to search for births and marriages. Can you add some dates and surnames?

Daphne, it might help you to find him if you can find his birth - both for 1st name and any middle initials.
When and where was he born, do you know?
