Laurence Laurenson b. Shetlnd in 1877 d. South Africa 1948
« on: Tuesday 28 February 17 01:01 GMT (UK) »
Have considerable info on this man, but running into some problems finding his marriage to his first wife.  I believe it was in S, Africa and her name Sarah Thomson or Thompson.  I cannot find their marriage certificate tho I have found the 3 following marriage certificates for his later wives.  I think Laurence married her about 1908 to 1910.

With Sarah they had four girls Ettie or Henrietta b. 1910, Laurine b.1911, Violet b. 1912 and Iris b. 1914.  All these girls were born in South Africa.  There is a lot of information on"Family Search Org." for South Africa, but no idea what religion they were.  So far have not found birth or death records for any of them.  Can anyone help me out with this?
