Ann Report 9 Nov 2017 14:25

I am looking into what happened to my Grandmother Mary Parsons (nee davies) born 1883 soho London. She left my Grandfather Thomas and 9 children around 1915.

We do not know where she went after this. According to the 1939 register there are 3 (listed below) Mary Parsons in London. Please could someone check these out for me. 2 of them look like they have possible names of the children she left.

Thank you
Ann Millington

Marriage of the Camberwell couple with son Charles - so not your Mary:

Williams Mary Ann Camberwell 1d 1531

PARSONS, CHARLES mms WILLIAMS
GRO Reference: 1905 J Quarter in CAMBERWELL Volume 01D Page 889

They married before your Mary left Thomas, so not a second marriage for her.

ArgyllGran Report 10 Nov 2017 23:05

Mary's DOB, which might help the search for her. There are so many marriages, deaths, and travel records for women named Mary Davis/Davies or Parsons after 1911, that she's hard to find:


Mary Davies
in the England & Wales, Christening Index, 1530-1980
Name: Mary Davies
Gender: Female
Christening Age: 0
Birth Date: 27 Mar 1883
Christening Date: 13 Jun 1883
Christening Place: Westminster, London, England
Father: Morcombe Davies
Mother: Mary Davies


EDIT:
Actually, the DOB doesn't help much! Internationally, a huge number of Marys were born on that day!
