Re: How to find someone after 1911 and when is the 1921 census coming out

Thank you all, yes this is addition to my 2017 request for Beatrice Maud Field, 42 Oyster Street, Portsmouth.

I apologise if I am causing confusion but I haven't picked my genealogy up since then as I was going round in circles.

The reason for my last post is because I am visiting Southsea, Portsmouth in October and would very much like to confirm that Beatrice Maud Field wasnt at that address after 1911 but I cannot or do not know where to look.

I cannot find any electoral rolls for that house after the 1911 census.  Could you point me in the right direction on where to look?

Someone mentions if she could vote you can find her on something, is that the electoral roll.

Also, if she divorised John Field to marry again, where would I find her divorce records.

Is there anything I could look into when I go to visit Southsea, Portsmouth.  Any help you could give me to confirm that she was not at this address after 1911 or point me in the right direction.

Although I have confirmed that the person whom married my husbands grandad is Beatrice Maud Field from birth certificates mentioned in the 2017.  I would still like to confirm that she wasnt at that address after 1911.

All very complicated. Thank you for all your help in advance

The electoral registers can be consulted at the Portsmouth History Centre which is located at the Central Library:

https://www.portsmouth.gov.uk/ext/libraries/portsmouth-history-centre-and-records-office

It is recommended that you get in touch with them prior to your visit due to all the current restrictions/social distancing etc.  Advice is given on that page.

I know Sidney and Beatrice moved to Croston, Preston, Lancashire shortly after this and had six children.
In this instance 'this' refers to the 1912 marriage.

You said earlier that you wanted to confirm that she was not at that address (ie 42 Oyster Street) after 1911.  Surely if her children with Sidney were all born in Lancashire, then it stands to reason that she was not living at 42 Oyster Street.  Children had to be registered in the district in which they were born.  Why would she go to Lancashire from Portsmouth for every birth?  :-\

Personally I think that a trip to the library in Portsmouth to look at the electoral registers would be a fruitless exercise.  She wouldn't appear until the 1920s when women got the vote and I think that her eldest child with Sidney was born in Lancashire well before that date.

Hi Neil, sorry to have confused.  I am trying to confirm if Beatrice Maud Field was at 42 Oyster St, Portsmouth after 1911 because I think she married Sidney Davis in 1912 when she was still married to John Field.  She had two children with John Field but apparently left them.  I cannot find a death for Beatrice Maud Field in the Portsmouth area either.

Yes, people thats great but was she a bigamist.   Did she leave John Field in Southsea, Portsmouth and her two children to start a new life in Croston with Sydney.  Can anyone find her death before the one in Chorley?
