On the marriage certificate of Frederick John RIDGWELL and Emily WRIGHT,  the witness surname is MASON :o

Well Minnie Violet MAson is Frederick and Beatrice RIDGWAYs sister 😀

I think.  Having trouble find the marriage, but their sister is definitely Minnie Violet Ridgway.

Oh good Sparrett has found it.

I just got a message on Ancestry from the person I am a DNA match with who said his grandfather was named Douglas Arthur Wright. He said Douglas Arthur Wright married Lenora Joan Ellis in England and had a daughter Patricia.

(all of whom are now passed)

Migrated to Canada from England after World War II

Has he given you all the details of Douglas from the marriage certificate?

No, he didn't have a copy of the certificate but did have this information:

"He and Lenora were married in Worthing Sx. England Dec. 17 th 1936 and before coming to Canada they lived in Worthing and Fontwell."

Lenora J. / Wright / Worthing / 2 b 929 (Married Douglas A R Wright)

If I request this marriage cert it should hopefully have the details I need to solifidy the connection.

(My date of birth prediction of Douglas / Arthur only came from the 1911 census, which may have had his date incorrect?)
