Her son John was born 1920 or 1921

Have you checked freebmd for Walker birth with mmn Rooney?

The above info appears to relate to James

You can use www.lancashirebmd.org.uk to look for Walker births with mmn Rooney and will find as follows:

Catherine 1900 is the Kate shown in 1901  Elizabeth 1902  Francis 1905 Henry 1908 (possible death 1910)

Then another Henry & twin Michael in 1915

Have you looked them up on the 1911 census to get details of children at that time?

The marriage is on Lancashire BMD but cannot be looked up as it was a civil marriage or in a catholic church

Hi everyone,
John himself wrote many times to St Catherines House even visiting there in person trying to obtain some kind of record of his birth.
His son has done a DNA test and I am in the process of helping the family upload the data to different websites.

I can understand trying to find information out about grandparents etc but imagine not being able to find your own birth info? It's heartbreaking :(
Sadly John passed away without finding the information he desperately wanted.

Henricum Walker -
Aliciam Rooney -
    Groom's Father: Henrici Walker

ADVICE needed
looking at that record of the marriage - am I right in thinking that both Henry and Alice are FULL AGE ??
There is no mention of parents consent
if Alice was full age it means she is born at least 1879 or earlier ??
or do I have that wrong ?
