Sorry, just remembered I had not given you this info.  Fathers name on the cert was also Andrew Whitty (Labourer) he was recorded as deceased when he wed Eliza Marsh in 1905.

Hi Halfsheep,

As far as i'm aware my great greandfather was called Andrew (from marraige and death certificate I have).  Est DOB is 1880 on death cert, and 1901 England & Wales census is 1879.  I have a private family tree already on Ancestry if you have access.  The only other thing my mother told me was that she thinks he was from Wexford.  There is a an Andrew Whitty in 1901 Irish census working a farm labourer in Wexford, Ballymitty with the same YOB with what looks like his brother (not a v whitty either), but as far as i'm aware its pretty impossibly for him to be recorded twice in two different counties, although Maura didn't know where this Andrew went either!  And thats all I have, which seems to be the problem.  I have however wondered where the name Walter had come from as I know it does not appear in any other part of my tree so I figured perhaps someone in Andrews family might have been called this. 

Not sure if this is any use to you but there was an A V Whitty living in St bride's in the 1930-50's according to some info I have researched but im not sure where he came from.  I think his DOB was around 1890 and he appears to have run garage called A V Whitty Garages in Southerndown.

Hi I am new to rootschat, and just saw your post regarding Whitty's in Cardiff.  I have previously been in contact with Maura from the Whitty Clan but have been unable to find anything substantial to tie my family with.  My Great Grandfather Andrew Whitty worked as a farm labourer between 1901 and 1910 in Llancarfan.  1901 census states he is from Southern Ireland so we have had no luck tracing him till his death certificate stated his brother was with him when he died in Llancarfan in 1910.  I have had no luck tracing his brother a 'V' Whitty either.   Andrew had two daughters Sally (Sarah Jane) 1905 and Maude (Alice Maud)1907 and son Walter John born 1910.  I think we may be out a generation but wondered if there is any connection  Of course V may not be his brothers frist name as some of my irish relatives are called by their middle name and not thier first name.
