Ada Louisa Skinner completely missing after her marriage in 1892
« on: Thursday 06 December 18 13:56 GMT (UK) »
Hello

I am on the hunt for what happened to Ada Louisa Skinner born in Poole, Dorset in 1868, daughter of Abel Skinner (merchant seaman) and Mary Ann Skinner.

I have her marriage certificate (copy) from 1892 to Francesco Bancone (he is the relative I am interested in) but she completely disappears after this and I cannot find any record of her.  He goes on to have a relationship and children with Sarah Sophia Lanham but still lists himself as 'married' and has 19 complete years of marriage on 1911 Census.

There are many mysteries to do with this man (a musician from Naples) and I am keen to find out what became of his wife.

Any assistance is most welcome.

Thank you

It looks as if the children are in the names of Lanham Bancone on 1901, first child with this name looks a if born 1895, have you any of these birth certs to clarify if he is the father of these children

Is it possible that Ada  Louisa Bancone/Skinner emigrated, her father was born in Newfoundland, just a thought

I can't find her so far but it seems as if Mr Bancone  very quickly was cohabiting with Mrs Lanham, she is shown as housekeeper on census, at least 1 child registered as Bancone , only checked 1 so far

Abel Skinner married Mary Ann Hescroff Poole , Dorset 1Q 1856
They are  Ada's parents ( GRO lookup confirms mother's surname ).

Ada Pent died 14 May 1919 Bronx, NY , parents Able Skinner & Mary Escoff

Vincent and Louisa Pent in 1910. The 1900 US census implies the couple married in England but the 1910 US census implies they married in the US. I guess the next thing is to look for them on immigration records.

In 1915 they had a daughter age 5 with them Viola Rose Mary Pent. She married Philip G Becker in June 1934
The 1900 census says they immigrated in 1895. I haven't found a marriage for them on FreeBMD.

Amazing results - thank you, everyone  :D

Just wondering though, could the US records be wrong as her father was born in Newfoundland rather than England? Perhaps she herself didn't know this fact?

I can't find Vincent Pent in the UK BMD - Pent is not a common English name so it should show up.  1930 US Census has a Vincent Pent born in Illinois with parents from Italy so perhaps his name has been anglicised.  Daughter living with him born c.1911 - was this the daughter he had with Ada Louisa?  He is now married to a younger woman and has more children with her.

I also need to work out how to discover what happened regarding her marriage to Francesco Bancone.  Was it annulled?  Did they divorce?  Nothing showing up on the UK records I can see via Ancestry....yet  :)
