Can't find James(Jim) Gladwell using Ancestry
« on: Sunday 31 December 17 20:37 GMT (UK) »
Father - Walter Gladwell, mother - Bessie Ellen. They married in 1903 and Walter was in the army. James was one of the 'early' children.
(Walter) Edward(Ted) about 1903, George Edgar in 1907, John William born in 1913 in India, Wilfred Kenrick in 1916, Douglas Geoffrey in 1918, Patricia M in 1921, Peggy Ellen in 1922
But I can't find James's details! Anyone?

Hi

When you say James was one of the 'early' children do you mean he was born prior to the marriage?

If so, try looking for the birth under the mother's maiden name.

Walter was born the year they married and then there is a birth for a Harry Albert Gladwell mmn Field in Portsmouth 1905 followed by the 1907 for George

Perhaps James was born in India?  Family don't seem to be in England in 1911

Giggs, Carole - I just can't find any 'James' details at all. Maybe I'm going blind! All the family names came from my cousin who said that 'Uncle Jim' was older than his father - John W. - who had been born in India...... I hadn't seen 'Harry' ...need to look again for him... :o

John William was born in India 1912 as per your post.  There is a 5yr gap between George 1907 and John so it's very likely James was born in India which is why you can't find a birth reg on freebmd

If you can tell us where and when James died we can hopefully find his full D o B from his death reg providing he died 1969 onwards

Did your cousin confirm that "Uncle Jim" was his fathers brother and not his mothers?

Carole - 'Uncle Jim' - don't know when he died, but was in living memory, so 1950's plus... I'll keep looking!
