Bether Hunt - what happened to her?
« on: Wednesday 10 June 20 22:22 BST (UK) »
My x3 great grandma had quite a few children, firstly with her husband and then with another man who she lived with for over 20 years until her death. I have quite a lot of info on all the family but her past child is a mystery. She appears on the 1911 census and that is it. I can't find a BMD or baptism either and she's never mentioned again.

Her name was Bether (as spelt on the census) Hunt and she was born in 1906 in Leeds and is living in Hunslet in 1911 with her parents Annie Hunt and a lodger (the partner of Annie and father of half a dozen of her children) Frank/Francis Bennett.

Could anyone find anything at all about Bether (I'm assuming Bertha) Hunt please?

All the kids are registered as Hunt (although the last 6 of the 15 were Frank Bennett's children) and all with mmn of Wrath which is what Annie was known as although she was registered as Tinsley which is her mum's maiden name. Annie always used and died as Hunt too other than on the ER where she used Bennett - she was even on it for a couple of years after her death!

Birth registered as Bertha Hunt 1906 Hunslet
Where is that at? I've looked on Ancestry, FindMyPast and, previously the GRO site and there's nothing on the first two. The GRO site seems to be down for me at the moment.

That's fine. Yes, I've seen her before too.

No record of her at all.  Using GRO online shows no Hunt births with mmn Wrath after Wilfred 1904.  Nothing under Bennett either

Long shot - I notice that there was an older daughter on the 1901 - Louisa b 1888.  Could she have married & Bertha was her daughter but incorrectly shown on the 1911 as Hunt
