Francis Weston
« on: Friday 09 June 17 18:31 BST (UK) »
I am researching the McVitie Family -founders of McVities Biscuits and am anxious to find out when Francis Weston died. He was the husband of Catherine Mary McVitie who died in 1943 at Houndwood in Pitton and Farley, Salisbury. He was alive in 1910 but I have no further details

No guesstimate at his age?

No indication of the age at death in 1943?

How do you know he was around in 1910?

Hi Hannahville

Is this the Catherine you refer to? If so, her death wasn't registered in Wiltshire?
