World War Two / Re: Private FREDERICK LEONARD DAY #5381031

Thanks CaroleW
That's a great help. Going to have to get Frederick's birth cert though. I am pretty sure I now have the correct family thanks to you and Sandra, but Frederick is *never* with them in any census. Going to examine all brothers now to see is one of those married a White or something else is amiss with this relationship with Fred's father anyhow.

Very many thanks Carole W and Sandra. I think I was getting 'brain-dead' and although I had looked at many possibilities I did not see these.  I will investigate these further now.  I did think I would have to get a cert for Frederick to confirm his parents.

I had in fact settled on a Frederick Day who married in Brighton and now have a family tree for that family.

Hi there,
Looking for information and next of kin of a soldier Private FREDERICK LEONARD DAY #5381031 Oxford and Bucks Light Infantry 2nd (Airborne)Bn who died aged 30 on 24 March 1945.

No kin shown on CWGC certificate. His name is on our village plaque but he is not from this village that I can see.
I believe his mother's surname is White and presume father is DAY. I think this is his birth cert:
GRO gov.uk
DAY, FREDERICK  LEONARD     WHITE     Order
GRO Reference: 1914  J Quarter in WOKINGHAM  Volume 02C  Page 741 though cannot find any census without a given name and with only a surname.

Hi Ayashi,
I have a William but born abt 1839 in Trelech. If we have taken these place names from census then with my families they change birthplaces often.

My William's parents are John Jones b 1809 and Esther Thomas b 1804. They married 7th March 1873 St Peter, Carmarthenshire, Wales. Do you connect. Yours are earlier aren't they?

My John's parents were John Jones and Ann James.

My mistake. Sorry there is no David. I looked at my family tree and there is David shown, but this is an error. On the 1851 census are shown:

John Jones   43
Esther Jones   48
William Jones   12
Francis Jones   9
Henry Jones   2

Yes there is a David. Born ca 1845.  And yes to your earlier message I believe that may well be the Esther I need.

Thanks for that. I should have given that census, as that is the last I can see of John Jones [in 1871] the 1881 may show his wife. She is a widow, from Trelech and has a grand-daughter named Susaneny which I assume is Susannah or a pet form of this. John James Jones who is either Esther's son or grandson, has a daughter named Susannah  so the Esther in 1881 may well be my
