Just curious, but am I reading/understanding Free BMD wrong. Looking at the marriage reference, it seems to indicate Elizabeth Ann Smith, going on by how the individual record colouring is.

Regards

Malky

Its given as Elizabeth A Jones on Lancashire BMD.

I agree with Malky on his understanding of the free BDM.    In passing it was in the Sept quarter of 1895 not 1894.     The question is - what is on the certificate?

In both the 1901 and 1911 census there was a niece Amy Evans born 1894 Wrexham  (Doris Amelia Evans), the same place as Elizabeth.    There was a marriage (1893) in Wrexham between an Evans  (this is where the same problem arises) and Mary E Jones or Emily Smith.   There was a subsequent death of a Mary E Evans in 1901.

Purchase of the marriage Dunlop certificate is called for.

If you mean the fact that some of the entries are in bold and others are not, this has nothing at all to do with who married whom. In FreeBMD, every entry is keyed by two volunteers. If the two entries match exactly, the entry appears in bold. If it has only been keyed in once, or twice and the two readings don't match, it appears in normal type, not bold.

I see I'm a bit late with this, but if you look at it now, four years on, both grooms' names are in bold and one of the brides, but the other bride is still in normal type.

Ive just joined this site and i'm hoping its not too late in joining the discussion.
Its been a bit of a family secret that my great grandmother Aimee Evans Jones was born into the Dunlop household and was brought up as one of they're own. Her mother was a servant apparently in the household in Hoylake.We have no birth certificate for her and no parental names except her father was stated somewhere to be a Thomas Jones?

Thanks,though it is the Elizabeth Ann Jones who he married that is of interest to me.The trouble is of course that it appears that the marriage was a non church one in 1894?I'm pretty confident that another Jones relative is with the couple in 1901 in Hoylake Cheshire given as a Servant.

Of course the object of this is to find someone that may have him in their Tree and have some info.
