Could you post the 1855 Webster/Broxton marriage, please?

What country, please?

Do you mean Randolph married in 1895, or was born in 1895?

Randolph was born in 1895, married in 1918.
So presumably the rest are birth years?

reggie the last post u put was wrong the one before it was right and considering my dad has passed n so av most of my relatives it is guess work all geneolagy is nothing is 100 percent certen


lee Report 23 Mar 2013 19:11

and patchem ty for ur help


ErikaH Report 23 Mar 2013 22:17

The marriage I posted was the CORRECT one for Randolph's parents..........look at the data on the 1911 census

If you don't believe me, spend £9.25 on his birth cert

The man who married Broxton - in Shropshire - was Samuel George..........NOT Sam


patchem Report 23 Mar 2013 22:36

Have you got Randolph's marriage certificate for the name of his Father?
This one?
Marriages Mar 1918
Webster Randolph Cowling Ecclesall B 9c 644

and also his birth certificate for the names of both parents, just to make sure you have the correct family?
Births Sep 1895
Webster Randolph Ecclesall B. 9c 360

I totally agree that nothing is 100% certain, that is why we have to work back using the birth, marriage and death certificates, and then also the censuses.

The certificates also give other information - ages, occupations, informants, witnesses, addresses, to bring meaning to what you have found elsewhere.
