Belated Happy New Year :-)
I am trying to find any relations from the marriage of Edward V DAVIES and Winifred B MURRAY 1950 Merthyr T.
I think they may have had two children, David 1959 and Lynda 1957, born Cardigan.????
Edward's Mother was Ruth Winifred BAVERSTOCK, and that is the surname i am trying to find info about through husbands family - (in a round about way) :-D
Any help would be great.

Ruth Winifred Baverstock was born 1903 regd. Cardiff. However there is not a Ruth Baverstock or a Winifred Baverstock (in case she used her second name) on 1911 census for Wales. There is this on 1911 census for England:

21 Temple Street, Landport, Portsmouth

William Baverstock 50
Alice Baverstock 41
Sophia Baverstock 15
Frederick Baverstock 8
Flora Baverstock 7
Emily Baverstock 1.

This looked promising except for the fact that Ruth was born 1903 which would have made her 7 or 8 in 1911 plus this Ruth was born Portsmouth according to the census.

There is also this one:

54 Bedford Road, West Ealing, London
William Baverstock 36
Ada Baverstock 32
William Baverstock 10
Marjorie Baverstock 2.

This looks good for age except the birth place is down as Ealing and your Ruth Winifred was regd. Cardiff

She seems to have disappeared !! Sorry couldn't be more helpful

Just to add, occ. for father more likely to be fitter maybe - but I am not sure! And Sillie is Lillie (shame!).

Hi Margaret, many thanks for looking, afraid they were not correct.

Thanks BJan, yes that is correct family,and all info correct too !!!!! i am trying to find info after the children have married and left home.


Sally Report 16 Jan 2013 16:49

Not sure why we can't find them on Ancestry 1911 Census, they are on 1911 Census.


brummiejan Report 16 Jan 2013 19:10

The 1911 above is from Ancestry. Make sure you put 'Bavestock' - I have sent a correction to Baverstock.
