Lancashire / James and Mary Kilcoyne
« on: Friday 07 January 22 14:44 GMT (UK)  »
The 1921 census has thrown up a mystery
My husbands father James Brett born 1915 Wrexham is found as a boarder with the above couple at 43 WestEnd st Oldham, the current family have never heard of this couple.

It states on the census that James mother is dead, no mention of father.

On his birth certificate it states mother Ethel Brett formerly Beddowes and father William Brett, as I have never been able to find a marriage between the pair had hoped that the census would have solved this.
I don’t know if I can find further information about how long James stayed with them or anything about them

Devon / Nankivel
« on: Thursday 12 March 20 11:20 GMT (UK)  »

I believe that John Nankivel married Mary Bowden they went on to have the following children:-
 Nancy 16/4/1826 born Mary Tavy Devon christened  Wesleyan Tavistock
Sampson 22/8/1823
Grace 26/5/1829
Thomas 27/2/1832

I cannot find date or place of marriage for John and Mary, this would help finding their age also.

Any help gratefully received
