Edward WILLIAMS 1806
« on: Saturday 11 April 09 19:01 BST (UK) »
Osprey and Gadget helped trace this family to 1841 census for me.  One question asked was whether on, Richard Williams Marriage certificate in 1864,(he married in Penge, Kent) Was his father shown as deceased? as wife Elizabeth was found in 1951 census as a widow.  I now have the certificate and he was not shown as deceased on the cert.  Just wondering whether they would necessarily put deceased for father on marriage certificate.

Also can you tell me where the baptisms of the children took place I have the dates but not where, if not how can I find out?

Thanks for help.

France, Williams, O'Brien

I'm not sure about all certificates, but I have two where the father is listed as Deceased.

not having the father marked as deceased is no sign of whether or not he is still alive at the time. Whoever took the details may not have asked if he had died. I have certs for 3 brothers marrying mid 1840s - 1850s. Not one of the certs says deceased for the father. He had died in 1835. Caused a cousin no end of bother as she assumed he was still alive until I found his parish burial.

Thank you, I feel I have the correct family that has cleared up doubts. Marie
