For ref helpers who might work forward, there are several threads already on descendants

Bev which birth cert have you got there, because that does not tie in with info on other thread I don't think ?? will go and look though


Rambling Report 14 May 2019 11:39

Bev you did not return to the thread on general

So did you read the info re Edwin George? info on birth confirmed by later records, you do need to stick to one thread per family as otherwise it is all over the place :-)

"Bev Report 1 May 2019 19:01
I am trying to find out who were my fathers fathers parents. His name was Edwin Standen and married to Phoebe Sedley. Any info would be helpful "

For info only
GRO Reference: 1881 D Quarter in STEYNING Volume 02B Page 302

Marriages Dec 1869 (>99%)

LAMBORN Elizabeth Steyning 2b 439
Standen William Steyning 2b 439

Mother remarried Marriages Jun 1894 (>99%)
Adams Harry Steyning 2b 554
Standen Elizabeth Steyning 2b 554

She ( mother) is named on service record for Edwin. ( ON FMP some pages hard to read but discharged as "not likely to become an efficient soldier". Suffering from "melancholia" ) I note he does not answer the question on attestation form "are you married" ...
