Deciphering death certificate 1897.
« on: Sunday 25 August 13 14:43 BST (UK) »
Hi,

The 1891 census confirms family folklore that my gg grandfather was born in Malta although he lived in Greenock, Scotland. Until I uncovered his death certificate I had no further information. Sadly I can not read his mothers maiden name. On the same census his occupation is seaman, like his father and his partner Mary Doherty's father John Docherty - Seaman: Merchant services. (I say partner because I have not managed to uncover a marriage certificate) It is entirely possible that his parents just happened to be in Malta at the time of his birth so essentially his mothers could be from anywhere. There is however another little bit of lore in our family - seemingly we have an ancestor who was a paymaster at the Battle of Waterloo. I am not saying it was Francis or his father but it seems feasible that there could be a connection if they were all floating around the sea around that time. Although Francis was born in the 1850s so that is a little bit shy of 1815. I really appreciate any assistance offered. Lou

Carmyle Jettrit. I put Jettrit into the search engine and some people with that surname come up, so it does exist  :).

I agree with Jettrit.

The 'J' is quite similar to the way the 'J' in the Registrar's name - W. Johnston - is written. Although it doesn't look much like the 'J' in John Bennett.

But it also looks very much like the 'I' in Infarction  :-\

I thought Jettril or Jettrit when I first looked. Then I started trying to sub the J for something else. Thank you both for taking the time to look  :)

I finally found a marriage certificate for Francis and Mary. His mothers maiden name looks like it ends with a K on this one.... maybe :D

I think  you are seeing the first bracket prior to the word (deceased) when you imagine the name ends in "k".... :-\

I think I need to try and find some immigration records and records in Malta. I haven't come up with anything yet but I will keep you posted. Thanks for the help :)

I'd say Jettrit too.

Look at the end of Street & Bennet - it looks like this, and  not like end of Greenock
