Missing marriage
« on: Sunday 13 May 18 01:28 BST (UK) »
Hello I can't find a marriage for Leonard John Rolls b. 1879 Wantage, Berkshire and Charlotte Hunt b. 1862 according to the 1939 register.
 Leonard married Rosa Collins in Newbury, Berkshire in 1901. Rosa and Leonard had a son Leonard John in 1904 Wantage, then he has a daughter Ethel in Wandsworth 1912 (Charlotte's), a daughter Mabel 1913 Wandsworth, (Charlotte's).
Then Lottie b. 1916 Wandsworth mother's name Charlotte Rolls formerly Collins instead of Hunt and the same for the birth of Frederick 1917 Wandsworth.
Next in 1920 is Albert George in Lambeth (Rosa's) and finally Dorothy 1922 Lambeth (Rosa's)
He dies in 1939 in Bournemouth and Charlotte is a widow living there with Frederick, George, Mabel and one other.  If anyone can make any sense of this it would be very helpful. Thanks.

So, I hope I havenít got he wrong end of the stick here but... are you saying Charlotte b 1862 is the mother of children the first of whom is born in 1916 when she would have been 54?
How about the woman in the 1939 being a mother in law?

Good point about the age. I had another look and I thought it said her age was 77 but it's her birth year...  Thanks.  I don't know why two of the birth certificates have Charlotte's first name and Rosa's surname...   ???

I see Leonard John in 1911, married but  boarding, where is Leonard junior and presumably Rosa? (Or Charlotte?)

Who is the informant on each birth cert?
