The Common Room / Current Birth Certificate Information
« on: Saturday 18 May 19 08:46 BST (UK)  »
Just a had look at the latest royal babes birth certificate in printed format, published in one of the main UK newspapers yesterday.
Notice that there is no mention of the childs mothers previous married name,just her maiden name.
Why is this.

Hallmark,I did not believe this one was the correct ex soldier either,wrong regiment.
Many thanks for unearthing the truth, it all helps to give an accurate picture.

Hopefully one of the these days,I will get across to the Cork Military Museum,just may be lucky to get more info on Thomas McPherson from any local records held there.When I first started my research in Cork it was many years ago,just as this museum was starting up,so have never visited it.
Many thanks again for your time on this everlasting post,Brionne.

Yes,now found the death of Lucy McPherson which I already have.

26 Jan 1885 age 35 wife of Thomas McPherson Royal Engineers.
U tero Peritonitis consequent of parturition
8 Victoria Street Barrackton.

She had just delivered her 6th child,must have been an awful death resulting in peritonitis.
The baby survived.
Husband was present at her death,but he remarried the following year.
This period of British history was a difficult overbearing time,and does us no favours. Would JUST like to find out exactly where one of this couple were buried.

Many thanks for your time Hallmark.
I obtained both death certificates many years ago.
Have had a lot of past help too regarding Presbyterian Churches in the Cork area c 1885/7.
Assume that Lucy may be be buried in the Military Cemetery,close to the Barracks,[as thats where she died,]now a recreation area.I actually visited this cemetery long ago,when it had a large hole blown in an outside wall,and a lot of the headstones were still insitu, the whole area badly hit by vandals.
Kew have always denied having any Thomas M PHERSON records or EVEN THAT HE WAS IN THE BRITISH ARMY, I have proved that he was a QMS ROYAL ENGINEERS,stationed at Fort Camden at the time of his drowning December 1887.There had been a court case earlier 1887 when he went Absent without leave.
Checked also for PM results when once at Cork Library,but none where ever kept for this period.

Well its six years since my last post and still no sign of the burial records for this couple,in the Cork area.
As there has been an ever increasing amount of information re Irish Records coming on line, just wonder if there are any new records which may include one or either of these two.
   Thomas McPherson/or Lucy Ann M Pherson.
Pretty sure these were lost in the Dublin fire,but would some kind person have yet another look,Many thanks in advance,Brionne.

Notice that this post dates back to 2013,but would just mention that the baptisms at Maddington are a long way from Broughton Gifford.  Maddington is close to the village of Shrewton on Salisbury Plain,a couple of miles or so from Stonehenge.

Have had yet another thorough search of listed British India records but found nothing..
Suggest the only answer is to approach the British Library for help.
