Help with Darke/Dyar please
« on: Monday 02 April 18 22:04 BST (UK) »
Hey everyone,first time posting about ancestry but here goes
I am at a brick wall with my grandfather Charles E Darke,born 1920 in Newton Abbot. I can find his birth certificate online but mothers maiden name is Dyar and i can find nothing matching this name as in marrying a Darke/other children etc
If anyone could give me advice as to how to go about finding out who is mum was,id be most grateful

Jules, there are plenty of births showing for DARKE and mother DYER (rather than DYAR) from this marriage in Newton Abbot.

Yes could possibly be a simple change of letter somewhere along the way

I was wondering why I couldn't find your Charles' entry for 1920. It is showing as DURKE/DYAR on FreeBMD.

See www.ancestry.co.uk/genealogy/records/marwood-darke_172701511
