Previous post addressing this marriage

If they married in 1921 and Dorothy was born around 1905 - she was barely 16 - so did they "elope to Gretna" as there is nothing in England & Wales in the September qtr 1921.

Previous post shows a match in 1930

Hi Carole  ;D, I hadn't heard of couples eloping to Gretna, but considering her age it is certainly a possibility.

Regarding the previous post, with the new information gained from Samuels attestation papers, we now know that the marriage in 1930 is not them.

I've just checked SP and nothing in 1921

Are his WW2 papers annotated that the marriage cert has been seen ?

Samuel William Davies never married Dorothy Phillips. He married Harriet Luke in 1921 and had one son with her. Dorothy appears to have been his second partner. By 1934, he has another son with his third partner Frances Bertha Beckley. They are still living together in 1939 (she is mistakenly identified as Dorothy). Samuel marries his second wife (fourth partner) Selina cartwright Perry in 1961. So, there are officially only two marriages. To my knowledge, divorce was expensive at that time, which could be why he didn't marry Dorothy or Frances. I'm related through Samuel's mother Esther Sanderson, so I know more about that branch of the family.
