Hello

Well I have the marriage cert.

Annie Louisa Smith married Edward Bonner July 1920. Both residing at 15 Osborne Road Petersfield. Confirmed as my Grandmother although she has been a creative with her age of 35. She was 80 when she died in 1959 ???.

Annie's father Edwin Brown customs house officer. This is correct although sometimes he was called Edward

Edward Bonner age 34, Father Daniel Bonner dockyard laborer.

Witnessed by Edwin Brown and what looks like Charles Bonner.

I'm still left with some mystery though.

Why Edward Bonner is not named as the father on my fathers and some of his siblings birth certs?
Why on Annie's death cert registered by my father she is widow of Edward Smith?
Why my family name is Smith and not Bonner?
Kent: Brown and Smith
Petersfield Hants: Bonner & Smith also Bonner-Smith

Think I found the Bonners in the 1901 Census living in Portmouth. Edward was 13 Charles his brother was 3.

I have a bit of French and Scottish blood in me...... ;D
