Percy James Pringle. Did he ever marry??
« on: Sunday 19 May 19 21:24 BST (UK) »
After my mother died a few years ago we discovered she was born illegitimate, a secret she kept to the grave. Her mother was Frances Pullen, and her father Percy James Pringle who, I have found, was born in Slade Green, Erith, Kent, on 30dec1907. I have discovered  he died 4 jul 1972 in Wimborne, Dorset.

Does anyone know any more about this guy, especially whether he married, and whether he had other children after my mother...  FreeBMD has two Percy J Pringle marriages, one to Coote in Hastings Q3 1935 and another to Marshall in Brighton in Q4 1936. How do I find more about these marriages short of purchasing the cetificates...?

Have you looked for a will for him?

Added:
Yes, he does have a will, however it will cost money to access it.

Have you looked for him in 1939, to see who he has married?

Added:
Yes, that sorts out the marriage.

The 1935 marriage to Dorothy G Coote is a red herring - different couple.
