Armed Forces / Soldier in Dover 1903 to 1904
« on: Thursday 21 June 18 11:50 BST (UK)  »
Can someone advise how I find out about a particular soldier who was in Dover in 1903 to 1904 His name was William Audley.

I know very little about him other than he had a daughter Gladys Winifred Audley.

Gladys Winifred Audley: her birth was registered in Q1 1904 in Dover her mothers maiden name is recorded as French.
She was baptised at St Bartholomew's Church Dover on the 7th February 1904 and her parents were recorded as William Audley, a soldier & Emily Elizabeth Audley (although I doubt that they were married)

The mother of Gladys Winifred Audley married as Emily Elizabeth French in Q4 1907 to Leonard William Sage. in Watford

In the 1911 census Gladys Winifred Audley was living in Hertfordshire described as step daughter with Leonard W Sage and Emily E Sage.

Can someone please advise how I find our something about Gladys Winifred Audley's father William Audley who was a soldier.

Thanks in anticipation of your help

Hi All,

I have just obtained some more information and Annette7 is correct William Audley was a soldier.

The commplete information I have is as follows:

Gladys Winifred Audley was baptised 7th February 1904 at St Bartholomew's Church, Charlton in Dover.
Her Father was William Audley occupation soldier
Mother Emily Elizabeth Audley formerly French (although I doubt that they were married)
The address recorded is 82 Wyndham Road

Can anybody advise how I find out information about Soldiers who were in Dover in 1903/04 and who was living at 82 Wyndham Road Dover in the 1901 census

Regards
Brian

Hi Daisypetal,

Thanks for your message.

The Canterbury archives did not give me a full transcript of the baptism they just confirmed that it took place at St Bartholomews. To get a copy will cost me 10.50. As you say the other alternative is to buy her birth certificate.

I suspect that Gladys Winifred Audley was Illigitimate, but the bit that concerns me is that I understand that when illigitimate children were born their birth registration and baptism record is normally in the surname of the mother.  However in this case her birth was registered and she  was baptised with her fathers surname suggesting her parents were married. Before purchasing either her birth  or baptism record I want to do a double check to try and find a marriage record possibly with a miss transcribed surname as if it exists it should also give me the name of Williams father.

Regards
Brian

Thanks to all for your help

Hi All,
Please accept my  apologies for not responding sooner. I have been looking after my two year old Grandson today, great fun but this is the first  time today I have managed to switch on the PC.

Top-of-the-hill,
Sorry I  cannot answer your question I have been looking on Findmypast not FamilySearch, but please see my answer to Panda40

I appreciate that there are two churches in the same parish (Charlton in Dover) and that they both have separate parish registers.  Family search has that on 7th February 1904 a Gladys Winifred Audley was baptised in Chorlton in Dover, but does not say which of the two churches in the Parish. Looking on findmypast one can browse through the parish registers on both churches. These are described as the Archdeconry parish records. In the records for St Peter & Paul there is no baptism recorded as having taken place on the 7th February 1904 and the list of Parish Registers for St Bartholomews does not contain any baptisms, hence my confusion.

I originally believed that Gladys Winifred Audley was the older sibling of Benjamin Edward Audley and Elsie Florence Audley but the 1911 census and the baptism record found by daisypetal proves that she is not. I am aware of the unmarried William (Bill) in the 1901 & 1911 censuses in Essex but I have no evidence to make him the father of Gladys Winifred Audley. He was aged 52 whereas Gladys mother was aged 27 in 1911.

Thanks for the source of the information.  You have done on Findmypast exactly what I did and  came to the same conclusion as me the baptism does not appear to in the St Peter and Paul Register and there appears to be no baptisms at St Bartholomew.

Thanks to all for your replies

Hi Philipsearching,

Thanks for your reply.

I have managed to find some Kent Parish Registers on line at FindMyPast. However they are not indexed, one can browse through them.

The baptism does not appear in the baptism registers of St Peter and Paul in 1904 and
there appear to be no baptism records for St Bartholowmew.

Regards
Brian
