Hi all

As you might well know by now- LDS and Ancestry both have the family as Hall and baby Mary as 7 weeks. But there IS no birth of a Mary Hall in March 1/4 of 1881,nor is there a marriage of a Maey E Hooper to a John Hall in the appropriate timescale.

If the 1876 Launceston one was correct(although her middle name is Elizabeth-her younger sister is Mary Ann  ::)) hubby John would only have been 16/17.

Can't see it myself.

Very odd.

Keep at it folks,the more suggestions the better.  ;D

The birth was probably registered in the June quarter.  Have you tried that

At first blush I thought the name was Paull but after looking awhile it really looks like Hall. I would say 7 weeks as the age of the baby.

There is no guarantee that Johns age is correct..

Is this the family in 1871?  RG10/2038/F93/p22 - in which case it seems Sarah is the only Hooper in 1881 with the correct age.

1861 - RG9/1376/F17/p27
Don't worry too much about their being two Mary's - The first Mary E was born c1851 so would have been 17 when Mary A was born. The first Mary may not even have been at home, probably already away working.

BINGO!!!

Marriage - Mary Hooper - Kensington RD - June Qtr 1878 - Vol 1a page 223

There are only two names on the page, there should be 4 ie 2 couples, looks as though John Hall has not yet been transcribed

Birth - Mary Ann Hall - Kensington RD - SEPT Qtr 1880 - Vol 1a page 44

Suey,

You are an absolute star  :-* :-* :-* Thank you thank you thank you.

So everyone that 7 must say MONTHS - not weeks  ::)

If John really was only 22 in 1881- I think we can imagine why Mary fibbed a bit about her age...and her mum also told a little white lie didn't she  ;D

Will go looking for John Hall in a minute or two..

Brilliant work Sherlock

Can you imagine poor old John's dilema in that household  :P

When he calls for Mary,he could get his wife,his mother in law,his sister in law or his daughter.

Just a thought  ;D
