Hi

Bearing in mind how much detail that you do have, filling in a gap . . . . .

Marriage 1881 Sept Bodmin 5c 97
William John Gill / Lizzie Jane Phillips


Are you looking for anything specific?

Thanks Ray for the date. It was from a piece of paper saved from a fire, there are burn marks all over it & a nice big ashy smudge at the end of that date. The fire i believe was out at st breward.

I think my grandad mostly wants to just know more information about the people, where they are buried, what they did etc.

I do have a possible mystery though. Searching ancestry I've found a Thomas gill as a possible parent instead of one of the William/William John's.

After my morning coffee I'm off to my parents where the big paper is & going through & checking against any birth certificate I can find as the rest of the family is correct, dates included!, which is what has me confused.

It sounds as if you're planning a visit over to England to visit places with family connections. May it be an idea to try posting some request(s) on the appropriate county board? Just a thought, I looked at this because I've got a few Gills ( that sounds funny, but you know what I mean)- but the only Gills I've got are Cumberland, and yours sound West Country. Good luck with your search.
Threlfall (Southport), Isherwood (lancs & Canada), Newbould + Topliss(Derby), Keating & Cummins (Ireland + lancs), Fisher, Strong& Casson (all Cumberland) & Downie & Bowie, Linlithgow area Scotland . Also interested in Leigh& Burrows,(Lancashire) Griffiths (Shropshire & lancs), Leaver (Lancs/Yorks) & Anderson(Cumberland and very elusive)

I'm in Cornwall, visited many of their graves.

My conflicting info is the parents of William John gill
Born 9-5-1864 or October 1864
Died 29-5-1932 in bodmin, Cornwall

He married Lizzie Jane Phillips
Born 17-4-1963 or 1965
Died 13-5-1927 in bodmin, Cornwall

They married 29-9-1881 or July 1881 in bodmin, Cornwall.

I'm struggling to find a birth record for William to find his parents & solve this confusion.

They were mariners & travelled,  there are living relatives in USA that we know of.

Hi

This marriage record on FreeReg on the following link, gives the name of William John Gill's father as William.

And this marriage record on FreeReg looks like the one for William John Gill's mum and dad and gives his mum's name as Jane Moorman

You're good, any ideas why when I click the link it just takes me to the search page rather than the record you've found.
