Doulton & Co became Royal Doulton in 1902, when a royal warrant was given.
Queen Victoria died in 1901.

That George canít be him as George Arthur is still at home in 1891 when the subject is in Canada in 1891.

Yes, this is exactly who I believe his is..  George C Wood is the Inn Keeper at the New Inn during that cencus.

Unfortunately there must be a mistake, as the marriage record for George Arthur WOOD, with father George Christmas WOOD (grocer) is clearly in 1893 to Elizabeth BREEDS. see reply #2

I think you have the wrong George Arthur.

Your George was already in Hamilton, Ontario by 1891.

Debra  :)

Is this not your George in Hamilton in 1891?

Does George give his parents on his marriage certificate or are they shown onn his death certificate?

Okay there is obviously some confusion here.  Family history unfortunately abounds with tales which later research proves to be incorrect.

What facts are you positive about regarding the Wood family?  At what point are you quite sure about the Wood family?  Is this your mother's side or father's side?

Can you name someone who is already deceased and you are quite certain about?  When and where was he/she born?

Added: Or are we talking about your MIL's family? Father's or mother's side?
