It would help to know her age on the marriage cert and also who she named as her father.

Someone has this in their tree

George Newman Pulman
Birth: Sep 1889 - Devon, England
Death: 1972 - Exeter, Devon, England
Marriage: 1924 - Merthyr Tydfil, Wales
Henry James Russell Pulman,
Elizabeth Enticott
Spouse: Ellen E Fisher

If Ellen was same age as George then it may well have been a second marriage so Fisher may not be her maiden name.

Details from the marriage cert is a must


MarieCeleste Report 20 Jun 2013 00:28

The mmn on the daughter's birth is Fisher .....

Could Ellen have been quite a bit younger than George?

as one of the replies to my thread states george pulman & elien fisher is on someones tree
if they are members of G R and see this thread please pm me
of course it could be that they are on ancestry which im not a member of

David, if someone has them in their tree they're highly unlikely to see your message on here. Go to the Search menu above and then select Search All Trees to see if you can find any other tree owners and, if so, make contact with them. There's only a very very small minority of GR members who actually use these boards so you have to be pro-active.

It doesn't matter if you're not a member of Ancestry - you can search and view public trees (and contact tree owners) on the spin-off site Mundia
You have to register but it's completely free.
