Does anyone know if there is a way I can find my grandmother's birth certificate, I have her date of birth, but not sure where she was born.

Thank you for replying. Her name as I know it was Jessie Tedstone, she was born 28 September 1894, her father''s name was Thomas Frederick Tedstone, occupation groom/domestic. This information was all on her marriage certificate and perhaps was not entirely accurate. The only other information is that she was born and brought up in the Birmingham area, she told me Halesowen. She told me her mother died in childbirth and father was kicked in the face by a horse and subsequently died shortly after. She was brought up by and Aunt and Uncle the names I do not know.

Theres this one....... year is 2 years out to your information but you could order it stating Thomas as father, if it isn`t the correct one you will only be charged £4.00

1911 census.
Jessie Tedstone 1898 living Birmingham

Others living in Birmingham.
Rebecca Tedstone 1860
Reginald 1891
Alfred 1893
Dora 1896

You have to pay to see relationships places of birth etc.

This is probably the birth for the Jessie Tedstone that Quinsgran found in the 1911 census.........

Births Sep 1897 (>99%)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tedstone Jessie Elizabeth Birmingham 6d 4







there is then a marriage for Jessie E Tedstone in 1922 to Thomas Coley......

Presuming your grandmother is the 1921 marriage William Conroy?...that makes the birth registry I gave you earlier in 1892 more likely......


Nicky

EDIT...... I can find no birth, marriage or death registry for a Thomas Frederick Tedstone in the relevant time scale....

Marian

It is very unusual for a date of birth to be given on a marriage certificate. Are you sure it is there? It usually only gives an age in years, and sometimes just "of full age" or "full".

It looks as if the John Hadley marriage to Annie Bradford is the correct one.

Hi all you wonderful people who have spent your time trying to help me to solve the mystery about my Grandmother Jessie Tedstone. The information your have given me is invaluable. I don't know how to contact you individually so that I can discuss your findings. However one message I received was from 'Rose'. As a child my grandmother told me of her awful childhood being brought up by an Aunt Annie, her daughter Beryl who used to wait for her after school and beat her up and her brother Denis who was cruel to her as well. This Hadley family seems to be the jackpot I have been looking for and at long last. Also the connection with the Bradford famiy makes sense. A Jennie Hall (nee Bradford) rescued my grandmother from the Hadley family as she was being so mistreated and took her from them in her early teens to live with her in Accrington

You need to order that birth certificate. Let us know when you receive it.

Hi Marian,

Most people who have helped will look at the thread again for any updates so if you want to discuss anything you can add it on here, a few sets of eyes are always better than one.

It sounds as if she had a terrible childhood.

This must be the marriage of Jenny Bradford who rescued your grandmother.
