Hi there....no both now deceased.

I have no information at all about them. Joan is my grandfathers youngest sister....he was William Francis Jakeman but  she was born after 1911 because he was the youngest in the family then based on the 1911 Census. The family history seems to be around Staffordshire...mainly Stoke on Trent. So Southampton wont be the place Id say. Ron Hughes's mother was a DeHavilland (or so the family think). My mum thinks they were divorced around the time of WW2.

Thank you so much for the help

How about? It’s the only female Jakeman/Robinson birth 1911-1918:

JAKEMAN, DOROTHY  JOAN mmn ROBINSON 
GRO Reference: 1913  S Quarter in WOLVERHAMPTON  Volume 06B  Page 1249

The name and initial would fit with the Southampton marriage, found earlier.

So Southampton wont be the place Id say.

it was war time. Thinking of some of my own single women relatives,  People were moving about all over the place, especially that age group.
I don't think you can rule it out just because of location.
