The 1932 child might be - you'd have to buy a copy of the birth cert to find out.

This couple may be the parents of the two later children. Again, only the birth certs will tell you.

Always keeping us on our toes throwing curveballs in these ancestors!

Hi All

I have now got the marriage cert for Leonard Charles Wood and Florence Knott in 1931.

Leonard was 23 (fits with 1908 birth year)

Father is Edward Wood retired Carman (matches all my research), it doesnt say deceased on it (does it always?) I havent been able to identify his death yet either so may narrow down my search time period

Witnesses: Edward Wood and M Wood which indicates his brother and sister in law Edward and Maud Wood present. Who he appeared to be living with at the time of marriage as address is 97 Myrtle Rd

This looks like the right couple I have been looking at.

Thank you for the help :-)

No, on a marriage cert it doesn't always say if a father is deceased.


ErikaH Report 24 Sep 2022 14:58

The info on any cert is ‘as given’ and can depend entirely on how the questions are worded

Thanks. I did see that one which gave his birth approx 1856 which is near enough. Another cert to buy :-)

What I havnt found is where Florence Wood is in the 1939 census as she isnt listed with Leonard.

I wonder if she is somewhere with this child (I have purchased the birth cert to see)

ErikaH Report 25 Sep 2022 09:44

Unless the daughter has died and her death has been picked up, her record won’t be open in 1939.
Ditto Florence’s death

Do you know Florence’s DoB?


Delboy1978 Report 25 Sep 2022 11:33

No, I only have her baptism information, where she was named as Florrie!

You say you have purchased the birth cert for Jean P Wood - what was her DoB?


Delboy1978 Report 25 Sep 2022 12:54

its not arrived yet. Will confirm when it does

ArgyllGran Report 28 Sep 2022 11:32

I'm wondering about this death as a possibility for Florence.

It's in an unexpected place, but the DOB would fit with her birth registration in the Apr/May/Jun quarter of 1909, and also with her baptism in April 1909.

It's a pity there are so many Florence Woods.

Florence Wood

Certainly cant rule them out until proven otherwise.

as she was a widow in the 90s and their house sold in 2003 she may have moved in or near with a relative until she passed away.

Hi All
Me again.....

So I have the birth certificate for Jean Pamela Wood.

Born 1st March 1932, 30 Twickenham Road, Isleworth.

Father: Leonard Charles Wood (Charles again!) was a Motor Car Driver
Mother: Florence Wood formerly Knott

Be great to find out more about her as she would be my dads cousin.

I have ruled out the Wood/Ansell marriage as the records suggest the middle name is Primrose


ArgyllGran Report 4 Oct 2022 13:34

Jean Pamela may well still be alive.

If she hasn't married or died in the UK, and if she has opted out of the public Electoral Roll (assuming she is living in the UK) there will be no online records for us to find.

Unfortunately for us, there are lots of women named Jean Wood.


Delboy1978 Report 4 Oct 2022 13:42

I know, there is a tonne of records for Jean Wood's out there. I many never find out but I will keep working on it


ArgyllGran Report 4 Oct 2022 13:45

30 Twickenham Road, Isleworth was the West Middlesex University Hospital.
