I do not have proof they were not Wilson or poynton, but I never met them and that is strange as my mum was very family orientated.
She used to talk of Joseph who I think lived in London and Lizzy who lived in morcombe (near Blackpool)' could my grandma have just taken them in and brought them up. I just found it strange to see them on the headstone, but maybe I should have talked more to my mum before she died as I now find it very interesting :-)

So..................try to do some research.

Use freebmd

Buy a copy of the marriage cert - find out if Henry was widowed - and his age

And if you're looking for 'Lizzie'....the place name is Morecambe.

John Preston Wilson's military records show that he had children before he married Margaret.

Could this be him in 1911? Married under 1 year and no children from the marriage.

(His records do state that he had a son Joseph Preston Wilson b.23.02.1907 and son John Preston Wilson b. 16.07.1897 and daughter Alma b. 16.05. 13 and daughter Ellen Lawes Wilson b. 22.06.1915. They also state that he married Margaret in 1911))

But I thought we determined that Matthew's parents were James & Margaret from the censuses.

Also you're still saying that Matthew was born 1869 when all of the censuses say 1862. Are you not reading the replies?

Margaret,

Have you applied for any birth or marriage certificates to confirm the information from the censuses?

This one will give mother's maiden name if he were born in 1861.
