Dorothy Elizabeth Carroll
« on: Thursday 05 November 09 14:47 GMT (UK) »
Hi
I am trying to trace my husbands mothers family

She married James Brett 29 march 1937 aged 24, in Nottingham, her father was William Carroll a soldier who died in 1914-1918 war.

She went on to have several children.

Moderator Comment:   Names of living people removed.  Please do not post any details of people who are still alive.

She told my husband several porkie pies, he was told that she was in an orphanage perhaps in Bristol, that she had a twin sister who was killed in a road accident whilst they were young, also she said she came from Ireland ( we don't know what is true).

Any guidance would be appreciated

Hi Judy,

I know we should never assume anything, but I'm assuming that she is no longer here. So, do you know when and where she died? We might be able to work backwards from there!!

Hi

I have tried to trace her birth without success, she died around 1988-89 in Ireland possibly the Cavan area.

Hi

I am still trying to trace my husband mother and have purchased a couple of birth certs Dorothy Lilian Carroll has the correct date of birth 1st March 1913 but has no father on the certificate just mother Norah Carroll who was a domestic servant in Nottingham, Dorothy Enid Carroll has the wrong birthday.

I have also look at Irish/ Northern Irish births without success, this seem a bit of an enigma

Any further suggestion would be appreciated.

Hi Maria

Yes I do remember you, it seems a long time ago.

Any information you have on your granny I would be grateful to receive. I must say that the Brett side of the family has proved rather difficult. although I have confirmation of her DOB on 1939 register I haven’t been able to find her birth registered in UK.

I also have never been able to find the marriage between your grandfathers parents, William Brett and Ethel Beddowes although have grandfathers James birth certificate

The other mystery is that your grandfather James Brett on probate register says” James Brett otherwise James Albari of 52 Gedling Gro Arnold Nottingham. Where has the other surname come from?

Hope you can fill in some gaps for me
