Hi I'm trying to follow a Dorothea Millicent Wyatt born 1915 Plymouth MMN Hodge
I,ve got she married 1939 to a Robert J Brown and is in the 1939 register with him,
I think her parents are George Henry Wyatt and Marion Georgina Hodge both b abt 1870
1939 George is a widow living with a Pearce family a Stonemason Marion died 1922

So I'm hoping 1921 census will have them together so I know I've got the right family

I know it puts Marion at 45 when Dorothea was born and 18 yrs after her other children
may be one of her sons married a Hodge??

Ok Thank you for looking I've got those names so it could be right it's awkward with out seeing the remarks on the register

Yes I have the marriages it's just proof I need that Dorothea Millicent is their daughter as it puts her mother at 45

You need the birth certificate if you want proof of parentage!

The mother would have been 41/42 when conceiving

A number of earlier children had been born, so no issue as far as I can see with the mother giving birth at 42. My mother was 41 when I was born...........and I'm an only child!

TBH, even the birth cert doesn't give absolute proof. All that tells you is what was given as info to the Registrar

To find other possible BMD info.................look for it on freebmd

Yes I realise that but the census tells me they are together it's not a close member of the family just trying to fit them in??

Yes I know 41 is Ok but having stopped?? then starting again you just feel as though it needs checking I went 10 yrs wouldn't recommend it

Thank you for the census
