How do you know he was born in Northampton?

I have looked and there does not appear to be any Reynolds baptised there at that date

What I don't understand is why when you go to Fold3 and you ask to download a record to Ancestry it says you have to have a tree on Fold3  ??? Surely this is just trying to het you to duplicate your Ancestry tree on Fold3

There are two further Collinson children born in South Shields with mmn Thompson in the 1940s - I can see marriages for both of them in South Shields. This would suggest their parents would still be in the area but I haven;t identified anyone as yet (certainly no marriage)

The parents marriage appears to be the 1933 one in Islington (the groom has a fuller name on the marriage than given in the link by barryd from Ancestry)

Do you mean to go back into the ancestry of the Buckinghams?

Yes. e.g for a start where is his birth registration?

I think you are muck-stirring for the sake of it.
If you genuinely feel that the moderator(s) do a poor job, then don't use the site.

Hey I was the one that got an abusive PM etc from a moderator not you so please don't be so offensive as to accuse me of muck stirring

Maybe they tried and it was difficult. Perhaps it was more about the man rather than the child.
I enjoyed Jamaica  :)

Oh yes I enjoyed Jamaica but its not as if the programme has not been there several times before and they didn't unearth any scenarios that haven't been discovered before. Meanwhile I feel there is more to the story of Frederick than we were told, and yes it is difficult to search.

I am getting rather concerned now ..

This whole thread is rather concerning in my opinion and I am surprised it has been allowed to stand given the behaviour of one particular moderator recently. Seems its one rule for them and another for the rest of us. Wonder how long this message lasts ..

Instead of giving Marvin a jolly to Jamaica they could have tried to sort out Frederick's true parentage - not as easy as it first seems, give it a try.

Also I was a bit confused by those medals Marvin was given at the end of the programme. Were they meant to be Frederick's actual medals (from a descendant of Frederick's) or just copies of medals he would have been awarded?
