Armed Forces / Re: William Winstanley circa 1922
« on: Friday 15 May 20 09:31 BST (UK)  »
Thank you for that it has been very very helpful.  There is an anomaly, however, on which I would welcome your advice.  I have looked at the 1939 census for Frog Lane and it all checks out with the exception of Thomas Winstanley where the birth is given as 16 October 1890 and this is where the anomaly occurs as when I looked at the October 1911 marriage registration for Thomas and Mary Ellen her age is given as 21 which ties in but Thomas's age is given as 24 and when I looked at the census returns 1887/1888 seems to be his birth.  Any advice would be most welcome
Thanks

London and Middlesex / Georgina Agnes Giles born cica 1872
« on: Thursday 26 December 19 11:52 GMT (UK)  »
I am seeking help with additional information regarding Georgina Agnes Giles.  The information I have is as follows:
She married James Bateman  on 05/03/1893 St Mary Magdalene, Peckham England her age being given as 21 and her father being given as Henry Giles (Deceased).
The 1901 census for James Bateman and Georgina has Georgina's birthplace as 'Westminster, Middlesex England' and the schedule includes James mother in law as Mary Rogers born about 1853 on the Isle of White.  I found a birth for Mary Giles in 1852 as '3rd qtr Isle of White, Hampshire, England 2B 455' and I found a potential marriage in the 2nd qtr 1876 between Mary Giles and George Rogers in St. Saviour Southwark.
The subsequent census for 1881 and 1891 has the now Mary Rogers (Listed as married bu no husband listed)  and her daughter who is now listed as Georgina Rogers.  The schedule for Mary Rogers of 1881 includes the entry 'Agnes Giles - Mother - Widow - 1817 - Plymouth Devon England'.
I am having great difficulty piecing it all together and I would welcome any help and assistance in trying to make sense of it all as I have failed to make any real connection with the several parts.

Durham / Re: Marion Agnes Philipson circa 1854

Yes William was a musician and did serve in the army:
 2nd battalion, 1st Regiment of Foot from 1859 to 1874 number 2949
1861 - 2nd battalion, 1st Regiment of Foot Returned from Hong Kong - Ref British Army Worldwide Index
Chinese Wars Military Campaign Medal - 2nd battalion, 1st Regiment of Foot
1871 Shahjehanpur, India - Corporal 2nd battalion, 1st Regiment of Foot
1874 Discharge
The burial in 1938 ties in with the dates given in the census and the place is right.
If the Thomas Phillips master mariner is correct he married either Ann Marlee or Ann Errington in 1st qtr 1851 in Sunderland but the only Mary Ann I can find is to Ann Marlee but the date is wrong.
The details of Mary Agnes are correct.
Still can't find a credible birth.
