Tracing a family member
« on: Thursday 30 November 17 14:29 GMT (UK) »
Hi there , Can anybody help Im trying to trace a William Rowland Hale B 1886. all the info I have is that in 1920 in Camberwell he marries  Mary Frances Burns. I have found them in the 1939 census & he is down as a road sweeper, but I cant seem to trace him in 1911 or before that.

Also stuck on Mary Frances Burns as well all the info I have on her is her 1st marriage to William G Ware in 1911 then her 2nd marriage to William Rowland Hale & all the children she had from both marriages so would also love to go bk on her.

Thanks for any help at all

If you have the 1920 Marriage Cert, please quote from it:-

His Age would seem to be [1920-1886] - his Birth is registered in the St Olave District ...

His Father's name & Occupation ...

His abode and that of the Bride ...

She can be seen in earlier (and later) censuses easily enough - I think she was born before the marriage and mum was maiden name Ludlow.

As for William Rowland HAle -

Christening
St MAry Southwark
2 Feb 1886
William Rowland Hale parents William and Sarah of 22 Fendall Street, labourer
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex
