p.s. have not seen these threads before

Where were you?  You must have been too busy working, gardening, eating, sleeping or something, they started in November.  :D
I have no excuse as 1st Nov was first day of my retirement
However some of those things and family history have kept me busy

Daisy Gertrude Wilson, born 1902, in Plumstead, daughter of Arthur Edward and Amelia Sophia (nee Rainer).  Arthur was Amelia's second husband so Daisy was my half gt. aunt......or something!  She married Sidney James Nevill on Christmas Day 1929 in Hoxton.  I think Sidney died in 1939 but have not bought the cert to confirm; Daisy might have re-married but I've no confirmation.  There were no children.

George Wyman of Oundle, Northants,  and Mary Swain (originally) of Wellington, Somerset married at Oundle in 1812.

Not sure how they got together as no other Swains came to Oundle.
Mary did survive until the 1851 census so I know her birthplace.
p.s. they were my gt x 3 grandparents
