Interesting article
A Tiller girl!  Do you dance?
Yes Dolly is a diminutive for both Doris & Dorothy

See reply #26 for the first marriage of Robert Barker junior and link to 1911.  Thatís two children
1 more (John George) and his wife is on that grave stone of the older Robert, Frances Wrightson and Alice Ada preciously linked and that you have seen.

If you look on freeBMD and put Barker in the surname, Wright in mother surname, select district to Darlington and the year range from 1911 (John George) to 1917 when Alice died, you will get the other 3.
Side tracked to a friendís very interesting Norfolk families. MORGAN, PRATT, HORNOR, SUCKLING, GLEANE etc. And in London DOWNES, du CROZ, MORGAN (same MORGANs as the Norwich lot)

I donít think anyone has yet explicitly warned you.

Do not assume the trees on Ancestry are correct. ALWAYS check each step. 
Some steps can only be confirmed by buying certificates.
Do check the galleries on other trees, sometimes you strike it lucky and find they have posted the relevant documents (sometimes the document proves the tree owner has it wrong but havenít noticed!j.

Eg. I have no idea who Doris M Hughes is. Even though we know her actual birth date from the 1939 register.  There are no Doris M Hughes in the births for that quarter, and no Doris, no M, Hughes in Darlington.

So...you will have to buy her marriage certificate, and hopefully she had a father (ie wasnít illegitimate) who she named, so then you have a chance of finding her on the 1911 census with parents.

Thanks for this.

I have found a few trees on others profiles who have similar names from other parts of the country. So haven't included them. I have added a few that have matched the people found through what you guys have helped me with on here though.

Somehow I added a Doris as my Grandma's mother. Robert Barker juniors wife. Not exactly sure where I got that from though, maybe off here, I'm not sure. I'll scroll back and have a look.

It was probably a suggestion via Ancestry.

Doris is his wife.
By ďno idea who she isĒ I meant which birth is hers, and who her family is.

Thankyou
That's still more than I knew before joining here.
I'm learning more each day.

Thankyou very much for your help so far
