Was she married?
« on: Thursday 03 April 14 17:25 BST (UK) »
Hi,
In the GRO indexes I find a Robert Whitaker Sinnerton PICKLES,registered 1914.
Sub District Bacup Reg at Preston. Reg District Haslingden.
His mother was Rebecca Sinnerton born Glasgow 1892.
I cannot find any entry for a marriage, or even the Bap.

She is shown in the 1911 Census in Burnley as adopted living with the Cook family.
Rebecca emigrated to Canada in 1925 stated no relationship.
Can anyone see Rebecca's marriage or indeed the Bap for her son Robert?

Thanks
bswinno.

I presume that there was no father mentioned on the birth certificate  :-\

Hi Swino,
If you don't have the birth certificate why are you assuming the sub-district is Bacup? HASLINGDEN REGISTRATION DISTRICT has 7 sub-districts: Accrington, Bacup, Edenfield, Haslingden, Newchurch, Rawtenstall, Rossendale which cover quite a lot of parishes. It could be any one of these unless you have other information which you didn't post.
I think You need to order the birth cert to get the fathers name.

Caesar, Dicker, Lamden, West - Hampshire
Hicks, Martin, Masters - Kent, Middlesex
Hancox/Hancock/Hancocke - Warwickshire
Gardner - Devon
Traylen - Essex & Jersey

The birth registration is also on the Lancashire BMD index - which shows the sub-district.

As it is indexed under PICKLES with Mmn SINNERTON, but is not also indexed under SINNERTON, I would take it that the details were given to the registrar as though the parents were married; and the father's name is shown on the certificate.

Apparently Rebecca did marry again over in Canada to a person named Phipps.
On her application form for the crossing into America. It does state age of first marriage.
It was given as age 20 so this would have been about 1912.

On the 1925 Canadian Passenger list it gives her as widowed and her mother's name as Mrs Milligan, 10 Forest Street, Mile End, GLasgow.

Curious. I don't think Rebecca is the mother of Sonia and George.
Archibald Phipps married Alfreda Ada Condy in Plymouth in 1919, and the births of the two children plus one other show Mmn as Condy.  Alfreda Ada Condy was born in Plymouth.

Alfreda A Phipps died in Halifax, Yorkshire in 1952.  There doesn't seem to be a divorce record listed on the National Archives site:
http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/records/looking-for-person/divorce.htm

although there could have been one later than 1937, of course.
