Mary WILLOX to George ROTCHEL Marriage   27 Aug 1827 Staffordshire   Wolverhampton : St Peter :

Witnesses Ann FLETCHER & John BIDDULPH, no other detail.


Just wanted to mention that JOHN BIDDULPH was a minister who witnessed many marriages at St. Peter's Wolverhampton, therefore not a relative of the bride or groom.

From advertisements in old newspapers 10 High Street was The Bamboo Toilet Rooms, the manager was Thomas Tripp, who was a chiropodist and masseur, his wife noted as Madame Tripp was a hairdresser.  Newspaper ads from 1914 to mid 1920's as Bamboo Toilet Rooms, then became known as Maison Central into early 1930's.

I had a look in the newspapers and this is the only article I could find about Mr. Fudge.

There is an old Rootschat thread regarding Frederick George Steggles. It includes a post from Frederick's grandchild, although the grandchild has not been on Rootschat since 2015.

There is an intriguing article in the Bury Free Press 09 February 1895 regarding an amateur dramatics group performing at Shepton Mallet.

The lead role was played by MR. F.G. STEGGLES, another part was played by MISS FLORENCE BANKS.
Mr. Steggles was said to have followed the stage profession before he settled in Shepton, he was born in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.   The rest of the cast were amateurs.

Look at the date of the article and the date of Frederick Banks' birth - 9 months  ;)

I haven't followed up on Mr. F.G Steggles yet but thought I should post this.

ADDED:  They also performed together at The Hall, Shepton Mallet in October 1894.

Just a few thoughts on what the newspaper reports have revealed...

I was thinking the same as ChrissieL, maybe she forgot her date of birth and on the 1939 Register chose Christmas day as her birthday so it was easier to remember.

Tweekymum, I realise your dad was very young, but does he have any recollection of celebrating Christmas day and his mum's birthday on the same day?  He did remember her black hair after all.

If she had an "eton crop" hairstyle,  it may have made her look younger.  The ages given appear to be estimated though and age 26 does fit.

I think Denesse rather than Denise was just how the person who took her details assumed it was spelt.

Strange that she remembered the name of the road in Newark where she was knocked down, could this mean she was familiar with Newark?

Did she really not remember her address or did she not want to tell anyone as she didn't want to go back.
