May E Bowles
« on: Thursday 06 August 15 21:07 BST (UK) »
Hi there,

Can anyone help me nail down who MAY E BOWLES was? All the information I have is she married Charles J Turner in 1931, Pancras, Middlesex. She had a sister called Florence and at least 4 children, *. Her mother was left on the steps of a Jewish orphanage when she was an infant. This information came from her Granddaughter.
Any help in uncovering her parents/siblings would be greatly appreciated, I know its a long shot with the info given
Thanks

What age was she when she married?

What is her fathers name on the 1931 marriage cert?

Are any of the witnesses surname Bowles

Copy of her marriage certificate should show the name and occupation of her father;  also the witnesses might be family members.

Details needed to order a copy from GRO:

May E Bowles   JunQ 1931  Pancras 1b  132    (groom Charles J Turner)

Certificates cost 9.25 and can be ordered from GRO:

Hello
have you spotted them on the Electoral registers?
There is a May Elizabeth turner and a Charles James turner in St Pancras 1956-1964.Other members of the family match with the names of their children.
1956-196118  Priestley House Wilkin st St Pancras
1964 91 Clarence Gardens.

Possible death for Charles James  Mar 1972 St Pancras age 69 or Dec 1976 age 70 and May E Turner age 63 Dec 1964 but no matching birth for that date.
Other possible death Newham age 71 Aug 1986, born May 14 1915.

Will see what else I can find

Hi there,
No I hadnt seen them on there. I have since spoken to Mays daughter in law and she says she was born on May 15th but she cant remember the year so the second death record you found could be the one.
Thank you

Hi
That's really interesting.I've had a look at the births index and cut it down to only May Bowles born or registered June and Sep qtrs 1895-1917.It's possible to eliminate all but two.

May Bowles Sep 1905 Aston d of William Frederick Bowles born 1858 Oxfordshire and his wife
                                  MaryElizabeth Dipper wheelwright.Sister Florence M born June 1913  Aston
May E Bowles born Sep 1914 Wycombe mother Edwards. Looks to be the daughter of William George Bowles and Ellen Edwards married Wycombe Sep 1898 .William was born 1875at Marlow  a steam engine driver.

The last one fits the death better but there is no sign of a sister Florence.

It does look as though you'll have to buy that marriage certificate.
Sorry

Hi all, Thanks again for your hard work! Marriage Cert is on order. Ive since been told May had other siblings, As well as Florence, there was Nellie, Stanley, Bert and Don (Not in that order)
Dont think that will help much
