Help finding a Birth before 1837
« on: Saturday 17 October 20 17:31 BST (UK) »
Hello all, hope you are well and staying safe. I am looking for a birth record and marriage record for a Sarah Newton born in 1836 in Ealing. Sadly I have no info for her parents. Her marriage was to William Gough of Nottinghill/Ealing before their childs birth in 1860. I can't find them on the census in 1861, their son was born at 14 St Jame's street Kennsington 1860, the mother and son William appeared living with someone else as their wife and son in 1871 sandiacre under the name Thurston, but Robert Thurston couldn't be the farther as he was living in suffolk with his parents when William was born. Sorry for all the onfo, but trying to narrow this down to make it easier. any help or advice would really be appreciated.

The only 1871 entry shows a Sarah Thurston b 1836 Ealing living with a Francis Robinson Thurston (not Robert) in Derbyshire?  Son William Edward b 1860 Notting Hill

Francis Robinson Thurston married in 1879 - but not to Sarah

I can't readily see a marriage between William Gough and Sarah Newton.  FreeBMD - using William Gough and surname Newton - shows no results.

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!

Thank you, that's something to look at, but I think she would have still had her maiden name Newton, it's so confusing,  thank you

Newton may not be her maiden name, she would not have had to give any proof of her name when the birth was registered.  Did she register the birth or was it her supposed husband

Hi, thank you, I found that problem, there is only one for these and that's in 1769 but they would be to old to have had William in 1860, its strange how there is no record of a marriage

This is where its confusing for me. The father is William on the birth certificate, on William's marriage certificate there is no father listed. There is a baptism record for William with the parents William Thomas Gough and Sarah gough in 1861 in Ealing which fits, but on his birth cert he is William Edward, this one is William Thomas, although his full name was William Edward Thomas Gough
