Hi keyboard86 and CaroleW

Just a quick update to let you know the marriage and birth certificates arrived today and it is definitely the correct family - William Cook & Mary Ann were Ellen's parents.

Thank you both so much for all your help and to you keyboard86 for sending me all the further information as it is all stop on.  I have been stuck for 2 years on this line of tree so wished I'd posted sooner!

What website do you use for searches?

Once again many thanks.
Kind regards

Dear Keyboard86 and CaroleW

Thank you both for your help.  Keyboard I think you may have finally cracked it for me, I've been stuck with this line of my family forever!

I have applied for John & Ellen's marriage certificate so will let you know who Ellen's father was and fingers crossed this will all tie in.

Once again, many thanks for all your help.

Kind regards


Berkshire Lookup Requests / John Musselwhite born 1876 Cookham

Dear All

I wonder if anyone can help me at all - I am wondering if anyone has access to the marriage records of John Musselwhite to Ellen Cook - I know it was on the 17th October 1896 at Stubbings Church, Near Maidenhead, Berkshire but cannot find the marriage Banns for this.

I am trying to establish where/details of Ellen Cook.  She was born around 1876 and according to the 1911 census was from Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire.  I cannot find a birth, previous census records or anything for her - can't find either John or Ellen in the 1891, 1901 or 1939 census records.  They were both still alive until the 1950's so should be somewhere.

My dad thinks her father was a William Cook - but trying to do a standard search for Ellen or William brings up 100's of names but cannot find any for Hertfordshire.  My dad thought that they were from Maidenhead, Berkshire but again I cannot find anything. (My dad said Ellen's father was a builder in Maidenhead).

Can anyone help at all please.

Many thanks if you can help in anyway.

Kind regards

The death in Merton in 1965 and the 1911 census does add up to be the right person.  On the birth certificate of my mother in law it states that he was an electrician.

Harold was married (Hampstead 1929) and my mother in law was from that marriage but he cleared off and she never knew her dad.  It took the mum 12 years to get a divorce as she never knew his whereabouts to get a divorce so had to wait that long back then.  My mother in laws middle name is Gertrude so it all fits in with the Dentons that everyone has previously mentioned (unless Gertrude was his mother and he was born out of wedlock so had the name Denton?? or could have had his dad's name but they weren't married and that is why I cannot find the birth??

Hi dawnsh

No, I couldn't find his birth or baptism and nothing for the 1939 census either!  he's a real mystery.  There is a death in Merton in 1965 and that is it.

He is listed on my mother in laws birth certificate as the father but she never knew him - perhaps that is why he never wanted to be found?

Thank you - I've looked on there before but couldn't find it - looks like they added the record on 12th August this year!

Thanks for your help though - that was something I've been missing for a long time.

Hi robo196

Ah - thank you so so much - I've been looking for a long time for that!  How do you access that register as I am obviously not looking in the right place!

I presume it was at St Michael's church as that is the only church in Up Marden.

Once again, many thanks for your help - you have made my day

Best wishes

Thank you all for your help on this one - I am still no further forwards with Harold's birth or baptism.  He may well have been Reginald Harold W Denton but just not sure.

Seems this family disappeared off the face of the earth.

Best wishes

Sussex Lookup Requests / Cyril John Bolton - Up Marden
« on: Tuesday 06 September 16 21:22 BST (UK)  »

Can anyone help me find the baptism of my grandfather please?  Cyril John Bolton born 9th March 1899 and was born in Up Marden, Sussex.

I've been looking for parish records for Up Marden but without success.  The church there is called St Michael's Church.

His parents were Alfred & Anne.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.
Julie :)
