Link to marriage record NSW

The above relates to the 1934 marriage

The above relates to the 1942 marriage

They take you to the order page.  No idea how much it would cost nor how long it would take for them to arrive should you wish to order either or both.

I've found what appears to be a second marriage for her to an Edward M. CAROLIN in 1934 in Woollahra, NSW, registration number 19235.

Another marriage as Hidis Mary Carolin in 1942.  Again in Woollahra to Norman Anthony Wood, registration number 18720.

Hhmm not much comes up for her does it  ::)

I can see her marriage record:-

Marriages Sep 1925

Atherton    Hidis M    Simon    Marylebone    1a   1517
Simon    Frank L W    Atherton    Marylebone    1a   1517

Did you obtain the certificate to see what age she gave and who her father was?

When did she go to Australia?

I see that she went to the USA in 1932 on her own.  Future intended residence was given as England.

I think this is partly where the problem lies.  Was his name always Francis Henry but known as Frank or was he in fact Frank?

I see that he appears on the 1939 as Frank.

Hopefully the marriage certificate will shed some light on this with his father's name and occupation.

Yes if his surname is different it would be best otherwise it may get confusing separating the relevant information from each family.

So I assume your grandmother was Ivy?

You really need to order the 1899 marriage certificate as that will give you his father's name and occupation.  It should also give his age but sometimes this is not always accurate.

You can order it from the GRO website.

You will need to register before you can order.  Please note that it will be a certificate as there are no pdfs for marriages.

You may already know the GRO website if you have your grandmother's birth certificate.

Find My Past have British Armed Forces and Overseas Births and Baptisms and it covers the Philippines.

Would you like to give me the name and birth year of the person whose birth record you are seeking? I can then have a look and see if anything comes up.

This is assuming that your person was British.

Never mind Jon, it happens  ::)

I think we need to wait for Danison to tell us what her grandmother's name was and what the mother's maiden name was.

With that information we can see if the 1899 marriage you found is the correct one.  If it is then Danison can obtain the cert and see what it says for Francis' age and father's name.

If that Frank was 16 in 1881 that gives a birth year of 1865 +/-

Danison is giving us a birth date of 6.6.1874 for Francis
