Starkey Family Leicestershire
« on: Sunday 24 March 19 14:36 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I hope you can help me.  I'm looking for information on the Starkey family (Leicestershire).  I'm looking for the parents of Bernard Leslie Starkey (b. 1920?), he married Emily Jones (b. 1917?).  I found a record showing his mother's maiden name was possibly Cooper.  I then found a marriage between Percy B Starkey and Jane A Cooper - but I'm not sure I'm on the right track.  I'd really appreciate any help you can give me with this please.

Thanks

Hi

Thanks for getting back to me.  This is about all the info I was able to find.  Its going further back thats a bit of a problem.  I think that Percy Starkey and Jane A Cooper might be the parents but I'm not sure.  I've got Ancestry at the moment and I was hoping other people might have the information on their trees, but I've had no luck so far.

Do you think it is very likely that Percy Bates Starkey is Bernard's father?

He looks a good candidate, having married Jane A. Cooper in Leicestershire in 1912, but you wonít know for sure without documentary evidence.  Have you considered getting Bernardís 1938 marriage certificate (or indeed his 1920 birth certificate)?
