Lancashire / Re: Grandmothers birth certificate required.

When Elizabeth married James Mackness in 1898 she gave her father’s name as John Hamilton

I would think from that she knew that John Nuttall was not her father.  It was quite common for an illegitimate child to make up a father when they married.

Sorry, we are not allowed to do 1939 lookups.

It is possible for you to do a free search (F M P)  It is generally easier to locate people with full dates of birth

From freereg
Shorncote, Wilts
Baptism    13 Jul 1820

Father surname   JONCEY

Father occupation Labourer

He does seem a bit of a rogue  ;D

There are quite a few articles on online newspapers that could fit him.  It looks as though he may have a brother Job Johnsey according to some articles. 

In 1841 there is a Job Johnsey - 20 -living in Shorncote wit a possible mother Sarah -60 not bn in County - of independent means

Perhaps you could give us a bit more information on Mary Phillips

Where/when was she born, who were her parents

Where do you last have her on census

Have you considered posting the details from the certificate as a 'postem' on freebmd

Normally if a child was illegitimate then there would be no mothers maiden surname on the index. 

Do you have him on census prior to his marriage.  What information does his marriage give
