What is your connection to him?  I noticed that Vera was 33 when they married and presume he was of similar age.  Was he previously married perhaps?

Vera would be a very distant relative of mine....anyone with the Ayto surname is connected.....

I know - but I don't want Del80 to think he's been found hence posting the other possible marriage. ;D

Until the 1946 marriage cert is purchased he remains a man of mystery

Thanks for the replies.....I can find three, maybe four John Jay's that married a Vera, but none of them fit exactly with this John (Jack) Jay.....as has been stated, perhaps the marriage certificate is the only way to find him....

this is his probate
