I presume this is the marrriage.

Marriages Sep 1912 (>99%)

King Walter Waller Camberwell 1d 1711
Waller Esther E King Camberwell 1d 1711

So are you trying to find an Edgar Walter?

He may just have used the name Walter.

Pm from Kelly.

From Kelly no this is not right i just went back and the 1901 census for walter king 1893 for 26 daniels rd peckham, camberwell, london, it says he was born in peckham, but i cannot find his birth records

That one doesn't seem to be showing on Ancestry, did you find it on GR? What are his parents names?

Birth certs do NOT give the birth years of the parents.................

What is the name of the child whose cert you have?

When was he born?

Where did you see the address in Peckham?

Reply on here.....use the purple REPLY button just below the thread title


Kelly Report 7 Mar 2009 22:14

hi thank you for your reply, the name of the certificate is Thomas Henry King, or Thomas H King, born 13.2.1915, at 26 Daniels Rd, Peckham,camberwell,london. mother Esther King(waller) esther was born 1891 and died aged 28 years, they also had William in 1913 and Rose in 1918 just befor she died, my gt grandfather remarried to a Lydia in 1920 when they had Frederick in 1920 in camberwell,london, i am sorry for not replying sooner but this old computer is really up the wall


Ricochet Report 7 Mar 2009 22:19

Thanks, Kelly, now we have a bit more to work on............

The address in 1915 is probably irrelevant.

The parents would almost certainly have established their own home when they married.

Have you got the cert for either of Thomas's father's marriages?

If not, it would be advisable to get one of them, to establish a birth year for him, and to find out the name and occupation of his father.


Kelly Report 7 Mar 2009 22:22

this was the address on his brother cert to in 1913 so i took it to be there family home


Ricochet Report 7 Mar 2009 22:26

Yes, it was their family home, but they were a 'new' family................the previous generation would have had their own home.

When I married, I set up my own home - I didn't live with my parents...............


Ricochet Report 7 Mar 2009 22:30

This is the second marriage...............

Marriages Mar 1920 (>99%)

Faulkner Lydia C King Camberwell 1d 1268
King Walter E Faulkner Camberwell 1d 1268


Ricochet Report 8 Mar 2009 10:52

At the moment, Kelly, as far as I can tell, you have no real idea of when and where Walter was born.

You need to establish that before looking for census info..............


Kelly Report 8 Mar 2009 11:16

ok thank you i have now ordered a marr cert for him and will wait till i receive it before trying anymore, but thank you so much for your help


Ricochet Report 8 Mar 2009 11:26

When you get the cert, let us know the details, and we'll try to help you as much as we can......................


Ricochet Report 27 Mar 2009 22:03

What happened about the marriage cert? Did you get it?

If so, what did it say?


Kelly Report 27 Mar 2009 22:38

regards kelly

its now 11 45 hope to hear from you in the morning


Kelly Report 28 Mar 2009 08:40

hi please dont forget me ???


Ricochet Report 28 Mar 2009 10:29

So, Walter was born on, or after, 5th August 1892...................which would fit the census info posted for 1901, although, as yet, you don't actually know, 100%, where he was born.............

I've had a look at 1911 census.

It's odd...........

There is a Thomas King, aged 18, Greengrocer, living in Camberwell, but no record of a Walter fitting the info you have..............

Unfortunately, there is no way of finding where he was born, or who else is in the household without purchasing units...............


Kelly Report 28 Mar 2009 10:53

i have loads of credits would i be able to do this ?
