Yoxford PRs - 1915 and 1925
« on: Tuesday 22 January 19 12:35 GMT (UK) »
Hi
This is probably a long shot, but on the offchance someone has access to PRs for Yoxford (or surrounding parishes?) for the years 1915 and 1925, I would be very very grateful if they could have a quick squint and see if sisters Harriet Esther Flegg (1925)  and Emma Laura Flegg (1915) married there, and if so what are the full details, especially that of the bridegrooms and the bridegrooms fathers- who I am thinking are Ernest and William Alfred Gooding (and hoping they both have father Frederick James!)

Thanks!

Ernest was born 1890 and William A 1898 per info from later census

Births Mar 1891
Gooding    Ernest        Tendring    4a   565   mmn was Prior

Nothing for William A in 1898/99 so wondered whether this could be him - probably born Dec 1896

Births Mar 1897   
Gooding    William Alfred         Tendring    4a   645 mmn Prior

William A seems to have died Dec 1947 - birthyear about 1898??

No probate entry unfortunately

1901 entry I think you are working from ties in with this marriage

Dec qtr 1878
GOODING    Frederick James   Tendring    4a   533   
PRYOR    Emma Jane   

I think Ernest and William were brothers who married the Flegg sisters but with the uncertainty over William's birthyear I can understand you wanting confirmation from the marriage certs

Hi Carole

Thanks for your interest.  Yes, I have the Ernest and William Alfred, brothers, children of Frederick and Emma Jane nee Prior. 
Findings on 1939, plus marriage of Emma and Ernests daughter back in Great Oakley (her birth having mmn Flegg) led me to these marriages to the Flegg girls - they are indeed sisters as can be seen together in 1911 with family. 
As you say, uncertainty with William A's birth year - but there aren't really any other births that would tie up with a December birth.  (Ancestry "links" this William A(lfred) with a whole load of records for a William A(rthur) of the same age)
So I reached the point that the marriages are the way to go - and as the Flegg family seemed settled in Yoxford then that was where to start!
It is a bit of a sideline, so I wont be wanting to buy the certs, hence I thought Id try here on the offchance someone has access to the PRs without too much effort.  It is Frederick's aunt, Martha who is my direct ancestor.

Don't use your time looking for anything else.
Thanks again.
