Isabella Annie Davies or Annie Isabel Davies
« on: Wednesday 04 February 09 22:49 GMT (UK) »
So Roderick Evans (1860) married Annie Isabella Davies on 20/11/1897- she is listed as 25 so 1872 birth.  In 1901 census she is Annie Isabel Evans aged 27 so 1874 birth -   when son appears in 1903 certificate says Isabella Evans formerly Davies. Their youngest daughter, still alive, claims she was Isabella but changed to Annie because husband could not say it and that surname was Davis. She was from Worcestershire..  How do I find her birth? Tried every combination of surnames and first names and dates of birth - and been stumped.   
Evans, Davies, Howells.

You presumably have her with her parents on the 1881 census so could consider the following option

Search by GRO

If you have done your own searching in the GRO indexes and have found more than one reference to the name you are researching, or are unsure which is the entry you require, the GRO offer reference checking online.

The charge is 7 for action on the first entry, which includes the cost of the certificate, and 3 for checking each subsequent reference against the information you have provided.   You have the option of asking them to either stop at the first reference which agrees with your information or to check all references

You must give them one piece of information that you are sure will appear on the certificate for example,  the exact date of the event or a parent(s) name(s). You must fill in the reference checking sheet which is accessed by pressing the reference checking button near the bottom of the page,  and fill in all the fields that you would like the entry to be checked against before
you press the 'Submit' button. A certificate will only be issued if the entry they check matches the checking point you give them.

Carol -  Thank you very much for your hints - I had those two births but they don't match her father's name on her marriage certificate and cannot find him or her on 1881 census.  Have tried 1871 too for him! hey ho .. will try again.

Who does she give as father on marriage?
Who are the fathers of these two girls that you have the birth certs for?
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

Hi - Her father on her marriage certificate is James Davies - do not have birth certificates for the other two just looked up variations of Isabel, Isabella and both Davies and Davis between 1872 and 1874 - and could not find one in Worcestershire.

Witnesses were Henry Evans and Mary Evans - from his side - marriage was at Tabernacle Chapel in Llandovery. In 1901 he was in Abergwili near Carmarthen as an insurance agent - on his own - she ( Annie Isabel now) was with his mum Elizabeth Evans and baby daughter in Trewaun Uchaf, Llansawel. Son (my grandad) was born in 1903 in Llandilofawr - as were rest of family.

Thanks!
