Marriage - county unknown
« on: Tuesday 12 July 16 17:25 BST (UK) »
I have been trying to find a marriage for Henry Clinton. It would seem that he adopted a middle name of Montague (his mother was born and lived in Shepton Montague which I think is where he got the name from). Below is what I have on him.

Born c1860 in either Cardiff, or Middlesex - all listed on different census as his birth place.
Died 1906 in Thirsk, Yorkshire.
In 1901 he and his wife are listed as Theatrical professionals and she is from Spennymore, Durham. There is a blob of ink over her first name which begins with J and her middle name is Anne.  They are living in Chester.
I can't find him in 81 or 91. His son Gilbert Montague Clinton was born in 1898 in Wales.
After his death I found a widow Jane Clinton (actress), Gilbert and a younger sibling at the Gateshead Union Workhouse in the 1911 census.

Any help much appreciated.
Thanks

He could have been I suppose but until I find out what his mother's name was, that's a bit of a guess :)

I just had a look at the Gilbert Montagues in Wales using a blank surname.  One died as a baby and the other is found later in 1901 census so it's not them.
