My grandfather's sister Florence Ellen Foot married George Scott of Stalbridge. There might be a link to Parsons through marriage and if you want any Scott info then just please ask. A big thank you for all your help.

Have you any information on William' wife. Did she normally go under the name of Ellen or Jane. I know she died in 1914, but I don't know when and where she was born and married or her maiden name? Many thanks for any help.

Looks like I've boobed! Mistook Olive for Lily. Apologies
This is probably totally irrelevant but I have "family tree" outlining my Dorset links  in the Stalbridge area. It is very much a  tree done from memory and family reminisence by an aged cousin of my father and who is no longer contactable. In this there is a marriage of an Olive Coombes to Arthur Higgins in 1918. Olive was the daughter of a Jenny and Harry Coombes but I cannot make the precise link to her parents, whether it was via George Parsons or her mother's West side. I have no details of Arthur Higginns other than a birth date of perhaps Dec 1880 and and a death in 1970.
Apologies in advance if this a complete red herring, but the names and dates seem to fit.
I will try and contact my brother who may have a bit more detail.

I cant find a marriage for Arthur Higgins to a Lily/lillian in 1918 but I have found this marriage
Mar qtr 1918 Sturminster district
Arthur G Higgins
Isabel O Coombs
5a 457

is it possible Isabel's middle name was Olive???
and this is the marriage you are looking for??
