Possible Marriage in Spain...........
« on: Thursday 20 December 07 22:15 GMT (UK) »
Hi all

I have an ancestor that may have married a Spanish lady...possibly in Spain....although not exactly sure...
I have added it on here as he was in the Royal Navy.....so it could really have been anywhere.....I have had a look at the British marriages and he's nowhere to be found ....

Any suggestions as to where to look

Hi

If you post a name and approximate date I can look in the overseas marriages

Hi Ken

He was called Robert Shard the marriage would have been after 1901 as he was in the Scottish census aboard a taining ship.....aged 16
Birth year on his navy records is 1884....but some older family members think this may have been wrong, as he ran away from home to join....and may have lied to get in....they seem to think more around the 1887.....so marriage would have been perhaps after 1904....but you'll probably know that because of his age....
He re-married in 1912 in England....we think his first wife may have died.....

His surname Shard has been mispelt many times....Sherd, Shand, Chard etc..
Thanks for your time

Sorry, I found nothing. I checked the different spellings.

If it was in Spain it could only have been a consular wedding as the army was not there, if you discount Gibraltar.
