I have a copy of the baptism entry of all three children. It has Lois Lydia as the mother of the son and Emily Grace for the girls. I also have my great grandads birth and marriage certs. His mother is recorded as Lois Lydia Francis ( deceased) formerly Clarke. He is down as F J Francis, Compositor and on my grandfather’s marriage cert as Francis Francis, compositor.

Hello
I am looking for any record of the marriage of
Francis Joseph Francis b 1850 Marylebone
Occupation Compositor
Father Francis Joseph Francis Shipping Agent
To
Lois Lydia Clark b Buckden Huntingdon July 1851
Died July 1885 Lambeth

Francis Joseph subsequently married
Emily Grace Freeman in 1887 and
Georgina Skeet in 1890

Unfortunately I cannot find Francis Joseph on any census to give me an idea of location.
On the 1881 census, Lois Lydia was still unmarried and working as a servant  in Camberwell.
 
The only child of Lois Lydia and Francis Joseph was Francis George, who was born July 1885, Lambeth.
My supposition is that she died in or shortly after childbirth.

I have searched high and low with no success. There is a Francis Joseph Francis marrying a Louisa Norman in Brighton, and on first look on census it appears he is a printer, but that seems to be an error in transcribing, as I think it actually reads as painter. This particular chap, born 1851, Soho, turns up in quite a lot of census returns for Brighton as a painter. My Francis Joseph was definitely a compositor.

Here’s hoping that one of you lovely folk can help shed some light!

Thanks Biggles50.
I have done just that.
We have a facebook group and WhatsApp group too.
I am a very determined person and have even joined workplace, school, town and village groups all over the world in my hunt for firmer colleagues!  ;D
It’s this not being able to simply put in a double barrelled name in the surname search. I just wondered if I was missing a trick.
Obviously if that persons parents weren’t married it might not show up at all. The firmer name of the surname being recorded as a middle name. I have tried that. I am sure I will find her...I never give up...it wouldn’t be a challenge then would it! ;) :D

Thank you Rosie

I am hunting down former nursing colleagues from when I was a student nurse. So far I have found 80 of them and this one is proving very elusive!  ::) ;) :D

I have edited this to remove the names as I  inadvertently broke group rules  by posting her name!

Looking for folk with double barrelled surnames on Ancestry.
I have tried using the first part of the surname as a middle name, or the initial to no avail.
any ideas?

Thanks for the help Comberton and Jamjar. With the correct spelling of his surname, I have managed to track down the niece of this gentleman and can now reunite two long lost cousins!
