Hi,

It would appear that Alfred and Mary have a son with the name Melton Arthur Law b.1885 (a per 1891). His birth record shows mother's maiden name as Jackson. Have you tried looking for a Law/Jackson marriage?

Bolton upon Dearne is in the Doncaster registration district.

A quick look at the GRO index showed:
Albert LAW b Mar qtr 1875 Doncaster vol 9c p683 mmn SMITH
Albert Walter LAW b Sep qtr 1878 Doncaster vol 9c p708 mmn FARMERY

We may be able to rule out the 1878 birth because there is a marriage Jun qtr 1862 Doncaster Henry LAW on the same page as Sarah FARMERY.

If you could let us know the names and birth years of any siblings you have found for Albert this would help clarify the mother's maiden name.

All the best
Philip

This would appear to be the 1881 for the Law family -

Alfred Law   31
Mary Law   24
Albert Law   4
Annis Law   3
Alfred Law   2
Lilly Law    6m
RG11 Piece 4687 Folio 33 Page 12, Bolton On Dearne, Yorkshire

Having checked all the children's births for the above, they all have MMN as Jackson all but for Albert, where I cannot find a matching birth with the same MMN. Perhaps he was born Albert Jackson.

Alternatively, perhaps Albert's mother was Smith, but (if married!) she died and widow Alfred subsequently married Mary JACKSON.  Or maybe neither were married  :(

I can't find a matching marriage for Alfred in the Doncaster registration district, but I haven't looked further afield yet.

Given the age discrepancy it would be a gamble to buy the certificate for the  1875 birth to see if that Albert's father was Alfred.  I do like JJen's idea that Albert could have been Mary's son before meeting Alfred.

There's a marriage of an Alfred Law to a Mary Jackson -
q3 1876, Sheffield
Vol 9c Page 379

A possibility?

Beat me to it!  I had just spotted that.  It's definitely a possibility as Sheffield is near Doncaster.

I'll have another trawl through the GRO for Albert!

Just a bit concerned about the above marriage as the age for Alfred on the cert is 21 and Mary's 20.
The age of Alfred does not fit in with the census.  ???

His father is recorded as Charles Law, Mason
