Blackwell/Marchant
« on: Thursday 14 April 16 09:10 BST (UK) »
Hi, I have a conundrum. Have been doing some follow-up research on my wife's tree and have discovered a 'step' aunt who is not recognised in the family memory.
Harriett Mary Marchant was born in Bromley by Bow 1911 to my wife's G/Dad, Henry Wm Marchant,  and his first wife, Betsy Wilson.
My wife's mother (Rose Marchant) never mentioned her in her lifetime but there is a record of a marriage in BMD to Reg Blackwell in 1933 and 2 possible death dates of 1940 & 1961.
Are there any Blackwells out there who have any family knowledge who could shed some light?

Thanks in anticipation.

Try searching for them on the 1939 Register, I suggest.

Thanks scouseboy, i am really trying to find a 'blackwell' who may know some detail.
PS: used to work in liverpool & loved it. Used to stay in the centre and had much fun. Cockneys and scousers have an understanding.
