Another David Cockling
« on: Wednesday 04 March 20 09:52 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I wonder if the following could be explained to me as I have not come across this before. 2 of the parties involved in this Might still be alive so will call them A & B. Born as David Cockling 15.12.1935 and registered in MQ 1936. He marries as David A M Cockling person A ref mq 1962 Leicester 3a 1897. They have at least 2 children "B" in 1964 and Philip Sheldon in 1966. Both these chil;dren are registered twice, once with A's maiden name and then as Pyatt. David A M Cockling dies aged 51 in Leeds. Philip Sheldon dies 2000 with the surname Perkins?
I can find no trace of A or B after marriage and births. Wanting to learn more about double registrations and anything about A & B if it's ok to do so without breaking rules. If that's the case then please report to mod for editing or comments.

John

Added, David A M Cockling re-marries in 1968, his second wife died in 1999 Leeds.

My only thought is that there are 2 birth registrations because David and his first wife may have split up soon after the marriage and that the 2 children were not his.   Registered as Cockling as that was their mothers legal surname, and as Pyatt, that being the surname of the natural father (both parents registering the 2 births).  Only sight of the birth certificates could tell you this.

What happened next?  Who knows?

There are not two separate birth registrations for each child, it looks more like a simple case of children born to an unmarried couple - indexed twice, under both the mother and father's surnames.

It would suggest the 1962 marriage had broken down before 1964 and these were not the children of David Cockling.
