Broom - back to the GRO. ( :) Thanks again for the info, found several Maiden names I hadn't got).

However, had one or two I tried with no Mother's maiden name. I "suspect" they may be illegitimate. Do you know if GRO has a rule: "Illegitimate No Maiden Name Given"?

"Emma" is a bit complicated and probably another string.

I think she may be Ellen Mary Mildred and leave it at that  ;)

Thanks Groom - news to me!!

Back to the original string. My money's on Dorothy Griffiths, born 1889 as the mother of Herbert.
But maybe I'll have to get the BCert  :'( :'( :'(

I have a Herbert William Griffiths born Shrewsbury 1906; registered Atchem.
In 1911 he was with his Griffiths grandparents.

I have no idea who his parents are. Can anybody be of any help?
(My list of to-get Certificates is a bit loooong as it is  ::))

Thanks people.

Eliza was christened in 1872, a few months before she was Married.
Binns is one of the siblings of Sarah Ann and went to Canada. (Never thought SA might have gone with him  :-X).
I've looked for a Sarah, born Yeadon 1832-1835 in 1861-1891 censuses. No candidates  :(

Happy New Year
Mike  ;)

Well, the SA I'm interested in certainly has a brother Alfred born c 1825, Yeadon.

The last I definitely have of her is in 1851 when she was at home in Yeadon. There appears to be a daughter born 1852 Margaret Eliza or just Eliza. Her birthplace could be Yeadon or Bramley.

From Free BMD, the Death of SARAH ANN CAWTHRAY. aged 65, was registered in Wharfedale in 1896.

Please can anyone find her in the 1881 or 1891 Censuses?
