Browns of Berkshire
« on: Wednesday 07 February 24 19:18 GMT (UK) »
Good Evening one and all.

This is about Reginald Brown b1898 in West Woodhay Berkshire Uk.
I am told that he married a lady with a surname of Prebble.
I am furthered informed that they had a daughter Frances Helen Brown.
I can find no reference to to the wife or daughter.
Iím wondering if Iíve been given information about another Brown.
There are few around.
Any help would be gratefully received.

Many thanks in anticipation

Chalkeydave

It looks as if you were given the wrong maiden name for his wife.

A Reginald Brown married Mabel A.F. Lester in Newbury in 1925.

In 1927 Frances Helen Beryl was born Newbury motherís maiden name Lester.

That all I can find and looks most likely to be the couple you want.

See www.freebmd.org.uk

No Reginald Brown b 1898 in Berkshire.  There is a March 1899 birth which could indicate a birth at the very end of 1898 & only registered 1899 but he was Reginald Arthur

West Woodhay came under Hungerford RD at that time so could he be the 1895 birth on freebmd - mothers maiden White??

There was only one PREBBLE BROWN marriage in Berkshire between 1918 and 1960 but that was between a Leonard BROWN and Ellen PREBBLE  in 1937.
There were none anywhere else during that period.

You need to look at the 1939 register entry for Reginald & Mabel then check freebmd.  Publication of 1939 info that can only be obtained via subscription is not allowed on RC. 

Reginald was not born 1895 or 1898 nor was he born in Berkshire - see freebmd.  You may need to check your info & buy a copy of the marriage cert to get his fathers name

This looks to be the family in Hampshire, Reginald born in East Woodhay, not West Woodhay,  East Woodhay came under Kingsclere in Hampshire, his birth is registered there along with his younger sister Ellen age 7 months in 1901 and older siblings, their motherís maiden name was RICHARSDON.

That is the only family  I can find that fits in both 1901 and 1911.

Yes, that certainly looks like Mabel in the census, but we are still stuck with the marriage to a Leonard not Reginald.

Hopefully we will get a response from Chalkeydave tomorrow.
