Maureen, I do know details of his marriage .  He married isobel elizabeth hickson in 1904 in Chatham
I realise this may be my only way to clarify details of who at least his father was, especially after your suggestion of a possible 'adoption' !!Regards donut 2

The marriage may not show his birth father, he wouldn't be the first person to invent one.

As Rosie says,when the CityArk site is up and running again (fingers crossed) we can look for the parish reg image of the marriage and see what that says.

Any idea of when he died?

It looks as if Mary Ann Jane Moses died in St Martin between 1873 and 1884. It's on page 48 of the death register so probaly about the time George was born.

Thank you both for all your help.  Can you tell if there was a family called Johnstone, living in Gorey in 1881? Donut 2
