Birth dats
« on: Friday 16 August 19 17:01 BST (UK) »
Hi,
Iím looking for a birth date for
Louisa lydia turner.
she was married to Arthur Henry Watmore in 1876.
Her age on the certificate suggests she was born in 1848/9.
But all I can find is a birth date much earlier.
Her fathers name was Thomas Turner.
thanking you for any help you can give.

The 1881 suggests Louisa Lydia was born in c 1849 in Stratford Buckinghamshire, so quite a bit of adjustment going on.

Stony Stratford, Old Stratford and Potterspury all within 3 miles. This is the lady and she's not unique in adjusting her age  ;D ;D

Potterspury was very likely the nearest registration point.
