William George West's Parents
« on: Tuesday 04 June 19 14:21 BST (UK) »
I've come to a halt in my family tree as I've been struggling to find parents for William George West. As far as I know, he was born roughly in 1797 possibly in Middlesex.
He had a son called Mark Henry West on March 10th, 1848, in Islington, Middlesex.
 Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!🙂

Yes, I believe so! I think his mother was called Sarah Taylor.

Mark’s birthdate was 10 March 1849 rather than 1848.  An image of his birth certificate has been attached to an online tree.
