Ada May Davis b Q2 1906 Brighton
« on: Monday 15 January 18 12:42 GMT (UK) »
The above was the daughter of Frederick Davis 1861-1928 and Philadelphia nee Attrell 1870-1922.
I think she married Frank Richard Beard Q4 1926 Brighton and possibly had 4 children with him 1927-1941 in Brighton.
However, I can find no records of their passings or emigration?

Could this be her - slight change in second name and birth out by a couple of years, but right quarter?

Ada Mary Beard
Death Age:   68
Birth :   2 May 1908
Registration Date:   Sep 1976
Brighton East Sussex
Volume:   18
Page:   0390

ADDED: Cross checking with the 1939 I'm fairly sure that this is her and a mistake has been made with the year of birth. Remember that was only as good as the person registering it.

No sign yet of her husband, although I think he was born 1901 Brighton, so can't still be alive.

1929 electoral register has Frank Richard Beard and Ada May Beard at 10 Nelson Row, Brighton. Also Harriett Beard, who I think is his mother (and the householder).
In 1930 Harriet is still listed at number 10, but Ada May Beard is at number 16 Nelson Row (with a Harding family). Frank not listed with her.

In 1931 Ada May Beard is at 4 Claremont Place, along with Bertie Butcher and Nora Minnie Butcher.
A free address search of the 1939 Register seems to shows that the situation was unchanged.

If Frank was the son of Frank and Harriett, then there are a few mentions those two in the Brighton newspapers.

There's a death in Chelsea in 1971 of a Frank Beard born 1 July 1901.
Put that d-o-b into the 1939 search and it brings up a Frank R Beard in Porstmouth. No idea if this is Ada's husband.

Likely had one in 1927. Not sure about any others. They may have separated?

Ah, another Beard-Davis registered in 1929, then one in 1933.
A bit of a gap to the last one in 1941.

Which I think confirms the death I found is her.  ;)

I think you've sorted out Ada but her husband seems to be a mystery, the one in Portsmouth is recorded as single and doesn't seem to fit the bill?
btw jon where did you find the 1929 rolls and the newspapers-I can't locate them?
