Elizabeth Lucy Cartwright, née Gibson
« on: Sunday 04 October 20 13:25 BST (UK) »
Hello everyone. As you all have been so helpful with my previous post I thought I ask for some help on something I have been really stuck on!

I am looking for more information on Elizabeth Lucy Cartwright, née Gibson. I know that she was born on the 8th of January 1909. She died in the December quarter, 1984 in Oxfordshire. She married William A Cartwright in Ploughley, Oxfordshire in the first quarter of 1969.

I am really looking for information regarding her birth. Sadly I have been unable to find her birth record using any of the research sites.

In the 1939 England and Wales Register. Elizabeth is recorded as living at 15 Huntille Cottages, Stoke-On-Trent. She is living with Arthur Gibson, his son Arthur Frear Gibson (b 1915) his son’s wife Violet as well as his granddaughter Beryl (b 1939 – d 1941).

In the 1939 she is listed as married. I have to say that I cannot find any record of her marrying Arthur Gibson. If anyone can find any information on this please let me know.

I am therefore assuming that her birth name was indeed Elizabeth Lucy Gibson but I just cannot be sure. I believe Arthur was an only child, so she was not a niece for example.

This is something of a family mystery so please do not worry if you cannot help in this matter. As it stands we have no idea what her relationship was to Arthur.

Look forward to the replies.

Hi. I found the index entry on find my past in England & Wales Marriages 1837-2005.

I see what you mean though, perhaps I could order the marriage certificate from this index, it should give me more information.

Thanks everyone for all of the information, I am going to look into this today.

Rosie I cannot view your 'familysearch' link but I do have ancestry and Find My Past. Was the address 70 York Road, Gt Yarmouth in the census with Ernest George Heath as her father. Just so I can check this is what you were linking?

Thanks everyone. Will be back later.
