There is a birth registration in Norton reg dist in 1939 Clarke - mmn Rogers who is probably the person
still blacked out in 1939. I won't give more details as probably still living.

If you use freebmd   http://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl
Select births
District Norton Radstock
Start date March qtr 1939
Surname Clarke
mmn Rogers
It should bring up your fathers siblings that were born there. We are not allowed to post details of possible living people

ADDED It looks as though there was an earlier son called Colin who died in infancy  :'(

Norton registration district covers these places

Marriages Dec 1912   
Berrett    Florence L   
Rogers    Henry

She could also be known by her middle name

You will obviously need to get certificates to confirm what I have assumed.  ;)

Thanks for the information. It looks right. with the L for Lilian (and then being known as Lilian), but I have never heard of anyone being called Berrett in the family?
I am a bit stuck now, as the information looks right, but I'm not sure- think there is a story behind all of this somewhere.

Not sure where to go with this now?
wondering if i should persue the berrett bit of it to see if i can find other links to the family? they definetly were in ross/mitchedean at some point so maybe look more into that?

You really need certificates to track back and check what has been posted, it is the only way to be sure. Just follow your direct line.

I think that we are all faced with things we have never heard of when doing family history, we are also often told things by family members which turn out to be wrong.

Born oct. 1916, died 1968
As far as i can see mothers maiden name perry.
Clutton district

But really cant go back any more. Any help or ideas would be great?
Tia

Oh wow. Thank you for that. The Franks connection does ring a bell now.
And the south wales connection links.

Is john major the son of the john franks and caroline perry marriage? Do you think.

Two marriages for caroline. Will have a look on ancestory and see if i can find this .
Thank you.
