Hi Mick

       Thank you for your help and the information. Please can i ask you another question which no one can answer. My grandmother was Mary Alexandra Dix born 25/02/1902 at Streatley Farm, Streatley, Berkshire England, in registration district Bradfield, birth in the sub-district of Bucklebury. Father is William Dix and mother is Ann Lowe.When Mary married William Brown on the 20 of May 1923 at Aston Tirrold Berkshire her father is William Dix. Mary is not on the 1911 census with her family  There is a family story that Mary was giver away to a family member by the name of Painton. On the marriage cert  for Mary and William the witness are Gladys May Dix and Thomas Henry Painton .My question is how do i find out what the family link with the Painton are and why give her away. No one in the family when i was a child was called Painton ,and i have not found a link. It has taken me about 18 months to get this far with Mary and her family so thank you for your help
Thanks Sandy
 Ps Mary and William lived all there married lives in Aston Tirrold Berkshire England
