The 1916 one doesn't seem to be in the 1939 (was hoping for an RAF connection!), but his father Thomas M (Millard) V Sheldon is there in Wembley, a carpenter and joiner.

Yes, my grandmother, Jean Sweet was born in Holborn, as was my mother L (H's daughter). I was told he was welsh, but again, not sure if that's true. I imagine if he was alive he could be anything from mid 80's to mid 90's in age.

Whilst we still can't confirm that the H Leonard F S born in 1910'sis the correct man, he appears on a Public Ancestry Family tree, with photographs.

This man appears to have married twice, once in 1930's to Mary Ellen Fitzpatrick (with some children from whom the tree owner appears to be descended) and then in 1954 to (Vera) Eileen (McCoskery/Goll) Sheldon, which matches previous indications.

I cannot currently see a Sheldon birth to a McCoskery/Goll/Usherwood MMN immediately before or after the second wedding to suggest we may be on the right lines.

Thank you very much!! Perhaps he either lied to my grandmother for the reasons of marrying the other woman or perhaps the other woman said she was pregnant and wasn't? Who knows! But his birth year and the year he was married seems to be closer in line to what I was looking for, so thank you.

H must have been divorced from Mary Ellen Fitzpatrick; she remarried as Mary E Sheldon in Ealing in 1954 and died as Mary Ellen Thatcher in Ealing in 1979.

You could certainly look at the Ancestry Tree photos to see if there is any family likeness.  They are of him at a relatively young age, when comparisons are sometimes easier.

Good luck!

Hi
If you have Ancestry it might be worth looking at the London Electoral Rolls, Jean Iris? Sweet appears to be there and also Harold L F and Vera, also possibly other Harolds.
Afraid it does nt really prove anything , only that they look to be in London around the same time.
Did find a Harold G Shelton connected to the RAF, born early 20 s Nottingham I think but I don t think it could be him.
