What is the source for her birthplace & age?
Give us a reference if it is a census.

I've had a quick look at Kensington Geohegan (& fairly close names) but do not get a match.

I am still looking for my great grandmother who was born on Guernsey the births department on Guernsey said that there is no trace and maybe she was born into a milatary family stationed on Guernsey in 1854 and was baptised by an army chaplin I have tried going down this path without success can anyone offer any advice on which way to go as everything comes back to her being born on Guernsey

What was the information on the 1877 birth certificate? (for the child which appears with her in 1881 and 1891). Pauline

Hello again,

sorry you haven't got any further. What does it say on Marie Frances' birth certificate (see Pauline's post 1st May). Are there any clues there?
