Ireland / Mary Boyle - DOB: 02.09.1927
« on: Sunday 04 August 19 23:16 BST (UK)  »

Can anyone help me find a birth for Mary Boyle - DOB: 02.09.1927.

At some point she went to live in Manchester and gave birth to a daughter (Catherine Boyle) in February 1957, who was then baptised on the 13.03.1957 at St Thomas of Canterbury in Manchester.

Apart from this I don't have any other details.

It would be amazing if I could find any other details regarding her.

Thank you for any help that anyone may be able to give.

Best wishes


London and Middlesex / Ada Brooks born 1902 Sturminster

I wonder if anyone could help me please.

The above was my great aunt.

She lived in Trent Park in the 1911 census with my great grandparents and family.  She was born in Stalbridge in Dorset in 1902 and had a son called Leonard in 1934 in Hampstead, London.

All of my family said that Ada married and one day a lady knocked the door to say that she couldn't be married to the man she married as she was already married to him and he was a bigamist.  My grandmother said this broke her heart and so when Leonard was born she registered him under her maiden name Brooks.  The man went to prison and at the time this was reported in the News of the World and other papers.  She never saw him again.

Ada died in Berkshire in 1989, never married or met another man again.

I cannot find a marriage for Ada, my mum and aunt thinks she married in London somewhere.

If the marriage was not valid as he was a bigamist would the marriage still be registered or not?  Just wondered if that is why I can't find the marriage, but it is more difficult as Leonard did not have his father listed on his birth certificate.

Can anyone help me in finding this please?

Thank you.

Yes it was Emily Northover, on the marriage Banns father is blank!

It may be he didn't know his dad?

Hi Carole

Yes, there is one in Yeovil but there is also a George born the same year who married a Jane, so I don't think it is the right one, not too sure.

Can't find anything else to validate it.

Thanks for replying.

Merry Christmas.

Can anyone help me with finding the birth for George, I believe his mother was Ann but cannot find a father for him.

Many thanks and Happy Christmas.

Hi Carole

Yes I found that one too and discarded her as details didn't tally up.  It is very odd.

Thanks for looking though Carole

Can anyone help me please - I am looking for the death of the above - born 12.03.1933 (nee Wallis).

She died on 13.11.2007 in Reading in Berkshire (surname Smith at the time of death).

I cannot find this registered.

Any ideas where I can find it please?

Many thanks

Hi all

I wonder if anyone can help me find this person in my tree, I am completely stumped by this one.

She was apparently born in Kent ??  her mum was called Margery/Majorie Wallis (nee Scuthum) but when she was very young moved to Lincolnshire somewhere.  Had 2 siblings called Roger and Janet not sure of their birth years.

I cannot find a birth for her at all.

She married a Jack Smith at some point (which I also cannot find).

She died in Reading on 13.11.2007 (name was Elizabeth Jean Smith) - I cannot find a death either.

I cannot find a marriage for her mother to a Wallis.

I cannot find her siblings either.

It is all a mystery - I have never been not able to find a whole family.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks.

I've spent hours looking for poor Edith and cannot find a birth at all!

I expect she will remain another mystery in my tree!
