John and Elizabeth Ann Short of South Molton
« on: Wednesday 23 August 17 00:31 BST (UK) »
Hello , I wondered if anyone remembers a family living in South Molton called Short ? I am particularly interested in a John and Elizabeth Ann Short whose last address was 8 Artizan Dwellings , South Molton , they may have lived at 11 New Rd South Molton in 1911 .Any help would be much appreciated . I think they had 3 children Olive May born 1897 , Eliza Maud and Percy John { twins } born 1899 .
Regards
Alan

This looks like the couple's marriage:-

Marriages Dec 1894

Prout    Elizabeth Ann        S. Molton    5b   884    
Short    John Henry        S. Molton    5b   884

Births

SHORT, OLIVE  MAY     PROUT     
GRO Reference: 1896  S Quarter in SOUTHMOLTON  Volume 05B  Page 407

SHORT, ELIZA  MAUD     PROUT     
GRO Reference: 1899  M Quarter in SOUTH MOLTON  Volume 05B  Page 388

SHORT, PERCY  JOHN     PROUT     Order

They are in South Molton at the address you mentioned in the 1911 plus a kept child.
