Parents of William F Biddle, b. 5 Jul 1916 (Aston, Warwickshire)
« on: Sunday 17 May 09 10:13 BST (UK) »
I've hit a brick wall with one of my grandparents, and I'd really appreciate some tips on how to find his parents.

All I know is that his mother's maiden name is Brigden (from birth data), but I cannot find any information on a Biddle-Brigden marriage. I currently use Ancestry and FreeBMD.
I had a look through the Marriage Index on Ancestry, but found no mention of a Biddle-Brigden marriage between when the spouses name is mentioned and the end of 1916.

As I don't know their given names I am finding it very hard to find any information.
I'd really appreciate some help as I've only been researching since Easter 2009. I have over 400 people in my tree and this part is becoming rather annoying.

Thanks very much for your help,
Tekiegirl

cant see owt, nor likely mis-trans - FreeBMD is virtually complete up to that period too.

Did see a May Brigden marrying 4Q1910 - Page 732 Aston - with a missing male name on the transcription, but trying various combos didnt flush anybody out ....

Think you are going to have to splash out to see the parents full names on the actual Cert .....

Hi:  like everyone else I can't see anything, but I may have an explanation!!

In my tree I was looking for a marriage, and I too knew the maiden name of the bride, but couldn't find it.  The explanation was that this was her second marriage, therefore she married in her former married name.  The subsequent birth registration of their daughter gave her original maiden name!!

Looks like you may to purchase the certificate to solve the mystery.

Good luck

Possibly:

Births Jun quarter 1880
BRIGDEN    Lizzie        Aston    6d   378    


Marriages Sep quarter 1906
BRIGDEN    Lizzie                        Aston    6d   629   
STOKES    George Stringer         Aston    6d   629   


Deaths Sep quarter 1910
STOKES    George S    age 33    Aston    6d   177

Marriages Dec quarter 1914
BIDDLE    Charles H    Stokes    Aston    6d   1068   
STOKES    Lizzie    Biddle    Aston    6d   1068

But you would still need the birth cert to confirm  :)

Thanks for your help everyone. I really appreciate it. Will ask some relatives about the second marriage thing as it may jog some memories.

May have to go the certificate route. I know they are 7 to order, but is there any possible way of just viewing a certificate rather than having to buy a copy?

Only if you can track down the church to find the baptism, then go to the Archives to see the parish registers.  Possibly not going to be easy in Aston, unless you have a good idea of where to look, and even then the entry won't give you the mother's maiden name.  Otherwise it's 7.00, sorry.
