Catherine Foy said to be born 1895 and from latest postings showing her brothers/parents on 1901 census - Thomas Foy, wife Mary Ann (nee Loftus) plus Thomas 3 and Alfred 1.

Immediate question is where was Catherine herself?

The children of Thomas Foy and Mary Ann Loftus were baptised at St. Chad Cathedral, Birmingham.

Family were Catholic and baptism records in Latin:

Thomas Martin b.3/12/1897, bp.16/12/1897
William Patrick bp.26/1/1899, d.1899
Alfredus Joseph bp.11/2/1900
Joannes (John) bp.26/4/1902.

Now, if Thomas and Mary Ann married in Dec.qtr.1896 if they had a daughter born 1895 then said child would have been illegitimate and registered in her mothers maiden name.   I cannot find a birth for Catherine under either surname.

However, I did find this baptism also at St. Chad, Birmingham:

Anna Catherina Loftus b.7/5/1895, bp.3/12/1896, dau. of Thomas and Mariae A. Loftus - is this Catherine I wonder?   Catholic baptisms usually took place pretty soon after birth and yet the child here is aged 18 months and although baptism entry states parents as Thomas and Mariae A. Loftus his name has a line through it.   December 1896 is clearly immediately after the marriage of Thomas and Mary Ann which is when their daughter finally baptised - correctly shown with surname Loftus as born before the marriage but parents were not Thomas and Mariae A. Loftus hence his name crossed through.   I have no doubt that Thomas Foy was indeed her father but even though her parents were married by December 1896 at the time of her birth they weren't hence being baptised with her birth name of Loftus.

This still doesn't answer the question of where she was in 1901.

Death certificate and census concur that he was bc.1780 - the latter clearly states he was born in Clunie, Perthshire (his children born Perthshire too).  This ties in with the baptism OP has now found.

James bp.1779 appears to be one of 8 children born to James Mustard and Elizabeth Ogilvy between 1775 and 1795 (only the latter baptism gives her name).

James senior probably the one bp.1737 Clunie, son of another James - this would appear to be the James Mustard who married Katharine Grymman 4/10/1728 Clunie. (James b.l1779 named a daughter Katharine).

One of the trees states marriage was 7/12/1872 Coleraine, Londonderry, N.I. to Mary Jane Freeman.   Since she was Irish and children born Ireland seems correct.

Marriage index on Ancestry and they are 2 of the 6 people shown.

Trevor1955 - OP hasn't come back to us yet so are you connected to the same family since you seem to have knowledge?

Richard David Roberts birth Mar.1890 was presumably a late registration as 1939 register index shows he was born 24 Nov.1889 - he died Mar.1968 in Hounslow.

England / Re: Percy/Peter Herbert Scotter (b 30 June 1904)

Percy Herbert Scotter married a Kathleen McGeehan 1928 St. Rollox, Glasgow - 2 sons, one born 1930 (won't name as could still be living) married twice (1957 and 1968) and the other a Charles B F M Scotter born 1933, died 2007 Glasgow married 1958.

Kathleen Scotter died 1966 Glasgow aged 64.

All these events are shown on Scotlands People.

Can't see a death for Percy/Peter Herbert Scotter in England or Scotland.

Glamorganshire / Re: Richard D Roberts b1890 Glamorgan

I agree with avm228 - census shows he was one of 9 children born to Richard Roberts bc.1855 and wife Mary Ann bc.1861 (all shown as born Pyle) - all childrens births shown mmn as Davies.

However, cannot find a death for a Richard D. or Richard David bc.1890 actually in Glamorgan.   Did he and Amelia move to another part of the country?   What children did they have?

The Common Room / Re: Joseph Manners Martha Carter Bitton
« on: Sunday 21 October 18 13:56 BST (UK)  »

Martha Carter and joseph Manners were married about Nov 1879 in Bitton, St Mary, Bristol, Gloucestershire, England.
church records,
However records office was unable to locate a certificate,

Was that the Bristol records office or the GRO

From GRO index
Marriage Dec qtr 1879 
CARTER    Martha       
MANNERS    Joseph       
Keynsham   reg district 5c   1045

ADDED
FindMyPast have a record from the Bristol Marriage Index  - Archive Bristol for that marriage

Which record office was it that could not locate the marriage record.

Hi, sorry for late reply, 
A copy of the original unavailable from GRO and  Church registries

With regard to your last comment here - I don't understand why the marriage would be unavailable from GRO when it is clearly shown in their index and also why it isn't in 'Church registries'.

FindMyPast have transcriptions of marriages at Bitton (titled 'Gloucester, Bristol Marriage Index') and that, as I stated before, took place 6/10/1879 Bitton.

GRO index shows one other couple's marriage with the same reference details i.e. George Lewton and Matilda Hunt.   FindMyPast have the transcription of this marriage too (except George's surname has been transcribed as 'Leuton') - they also married in Bitton but on 12/10/1879 (6 days after Joseph and Martha), he son of a George, Matilda dau. of a Thomas.

Glad you are pleased with the results you've received on this thread but can I suggest that when you are asked specific questions, as some of the replies have done, that you answer these directly.  It all helps us to help you.
