Anyone checked out the Leanita Goninon March qtr 1910 Redruth 5c 166?


This might be her

Leanita born 1910 may have a connection to this Goninon family living in Cambone 1901

Ruled her out just because of different surname?

There is no birth of a Passmore child around 1910, so that is why we are exploring the possibility of her not being their child by birth, as they say they have 6 living children of the marriage but list 7. It is only one possibility.

As you say, another explanation could be that the child Lea is actually one of the ones that have died. Thus the age given , of 1, might be the age she was when she died, not her age in 1911, and would explain why she is listed with a 3 year old after her.  But, even widening the years for a search for a birth, I cant see any suitably named Pas(s)more child registered in Redruth!

Suitable?

Birth   Jun 1897 Redruth 5c 193 Leo Maud Passmore
Death Jun 1898 Redruth 5c 147 Leo Maud Passmore ( 1yr )

To me,
it is an innocent answer to "children born alive to present marriage" but did not read "alive at midnight" from col 1.

After all, the person completing the form was not highly educated ( or dyslexic? ) by spelling Marina as Merina, Maud as Mude, Irene as Irena, and maybe Leo should have been Lea on the BMD regs.

Sorted.

(I hadn't looked early enough for the birth, and somehow hadn't registered in my thick brain the Leo one that had been found already)

Deaths Jun 1898 
PASSMORE    Leo Maud    1

And I thought it couldn't be right as I was looking at the wrong date  ;D   ;D   ::)   ::)

The person completing the form had quite nice handwriting and I think that maybe it was spelt the way it was pronounced.
I agree with you that it could have been an innocent answer to the question about children born alive to present marriage. That will explain why there isn't any other Passmore born in that time frame.

Even in the last 30 years I have seen a friends child, who was a Leo, in the birth indexes as Les.  Somewhere along the line a letter has been misread.
So Lea could well have been misindexed as Leo - not beyond the realms of possibility.

Lea Mude born 1910 was the daughter of Marina and William H Passmore and they lived in Camborne.
I haven't been able to find out what happened to Lea after 1911. Did she emigrate at any time?
Lea Mude had a sister called Mude who was also known as Sophia born 1905 in Camborne and Sophia is on Ellis Island as going to the US in 1923 arriving 4th October 1923. Sophia was to  meet her intended husband Mr F G Jones who lived at 4036?, Brooklyn Avenue,Detroit ,Michigan and she called herself Sophia Maud and her father was William H Passmore who was living in Camborne was her nearest relative.
Sophia didn't stay in the US because she married in Cornwall but not Mr Jones! There is  a line through her details and I wonder if she actually went to the US and if she did will anyone be able to find her return passage and what happened to Mr F G Jones? Where did they meet in the first place?
