Beatrice name change to Watts dated 20.4.44 - probably date of update to record rather than the date she married.

(Married Edward J Watts Q2 1944 Dartford RD 2A 2168)

there are closed records at numbers 3 and 5

Rosina's dob is badly obscured and may read 1924

For an idea of time frame and possible areas to look

Surname First name(s) Spouse District Vol Page
Marriages Mar 1917 (>99%)
Burrows William Pearce Lambeth 1d 520 <<<<<<
Dennis Mabel M Taylor Lambeth 1d 520
Pearce Beatrice A E Burrows Lambeth 1d 520 <<<<<
Taylor Percy W Dennis Lambeth 1d 520

Was Albert the only Burrows child - looks like it from dates on freebmd - there were other Burrows/Pearce marriages around the time.

Not finding a Burrows/Harvey marriage. Do you know when William died or maybe Beatrice wasn't free to remarry, but said so on the Register for propriety's sake

Have you actually found the 6 children's birth registrations to know what was given as the mmn?


greyghost Report 24 Mar 2017 19:24

I know a lot of your research is based in Nottingham so is this Kathleen's birth ?????

(what are details regarding Father on above Cert.?)

The Ashford Tree has the following:

Beatrice Alice Elizabeth Pearce born 2 April 1899, Brixton, London, died 2 April 1976, Southend on Sea, Essex. (Nice photo of her) daughter of Frederick William Pearce & Rosina Sarah Cox.

Married William Edward Burrows born Tasmania, Australia. (1894-1918), married 1917, Lambeth, Surrey. One child Albert W.F. Burrows (1919-)

No marriage date for marriage to Sidney Harvey (1894-1940)
Kathleen Lillian Harvey (1923-1998) nice photo of her.
Rosina Beatrice Harvey (1924-2006)
Eva May Harvey (1928-)
3 others, 2 male, 1 female Private.

Beatrice then married Edward James Watts, no date given.


MargaretM Report 25 Mar 2017 12:02

She married Edward Watts as Beatrice A.E.Harvey making it appear that she was legally married to Sidney Harvey.

To me it doesn't make sence
Re Beatrice a e Pearce
We know Beatrice A E Pearce married William Burrows
Also Edward Watts

But on the 1939 Register Beatrice is Single

But how can Beatrice A E be a Harvey on her marriage to
Edward James Watts

Thankyou for the look up on the Ashford Tree
Would I Be able to print the photos if I went to the local Library

Bye for now and Thankyou
