Marriage enquiry
« on: Thursday 22 June 17 15:28 BST (UK) »
My great uncle Charles Goodman Roberts was born 18th March 1887, Penmon, Anglesey. As far as the family know he never married. He sailed to America (New York) on the 6th May 1911 on The Arabic. However, his status on the Ship's record when registering is given as married.
Is anybody able to check any possible marriage details please?
His obituary notice does not mention a surviving nor late spouse. Perhaps it's just an error he made on the form.
Sorry if I've posted this on the incorrect forum. Could not locate 'Marriage Look Ups'.

Do you mean the passenger list or some other document?

Charles Roberts age 22 Welsh single occupation miner is what I can see but if you could post what you have we could have a look  :)

Charles was still single on the 3rd April 1911 so he would have had to marry by the 6th May before he sailed. Looking at possible marriages for that small window there is Charles G Roberts 1911 2Q in Kings Norton, Worcestershire to either Nellie Wilkes or Etta Wood.

I love the transcription address for the 1901 Census of Cae Merddyn, PUFFIN ISLAND, Anglesey, Bangor  ???

Thank you Ellenmai and Milliepede. Attached is a transcript  of the passenger list (?) document information.
Very unlikely to have married in that timescale as you suggest, Ellenmai - not in Kings Norton anyway. :) Cae Merddyn on Puffin Island - who would have thought eh?  ;D
Charles sadly committed suicide in June 1918, mental health problems.

How sad for that to happen after he had traveled so far to his new life  :'(

You're welcome. Always worth seeing the original if possible - in fact it's a guiding principle of genealogy... :)
