Courtenay wilson
« on: Tuesday 07 July 20 17:57 BST (UK) »
Hi

Wonder if anyone can help. Iíve hit a brick wall on this one. Iíve got Courtenay Wilson born in Plymouth in 1903. Iíve been told he grew up partly in a childrenís home and partly with his father whose name we do not know. His motherís surname was a Wilson. I donít know her Christian name so nothing to go on to try to trace her. I know he married Mary Tapsell in London in 1928 but thatís all Iíve got.

Any help would be much appreciated

Many thanks

Where was he in 1911?

Try familysearch.  You will find the baptism there, where he has two parents named.

Using the "No. of years married" on the 1911 Census and head of household's first name, spotted this possible marriage
