Just to say I have looked on IGI site for marriage
of John Paul to Louisa Webber (widow)
also FreeBMD,
dates from 1883 onwards.
I wouldn't like to waste anyones time.
Would still appreciate some help on this one please.
Many thanks.

Hi Bennett,
Do you have a marriage for Louisa?  I've found a Louisa STRONG living at Watchet in the 1871 census, she's the only one of 19 Louisas in Watchet who is born around the right time.  Might be worth looking for STRONG and WEBBER marriage.

...also, you'll need to check the full BMD indexes for the marriage/s - as you probably know the IGI and FreeBMD are incomplete.  You can do a pay-per-view search at www.1837online.com if you're not near an LDS family history centre, or library with microfiche versions of the indexes.

Cheers

Hi Prue,
Thanks for reply,
yes Louisa in Watchet is the one I am looking for.
She was Louisa STRONG m William WEBBER,
she then became a widow in 1883.
However I know she then went on to be living in PLYMOUTH,DEVON,
on the 1901 census,she is then known to be LOUISA PAUL,living with
JOHN PAUL, and 4 children all with the surname PAUL,
plus her  2 of her children,surname WEBBER.
I am trying to find a marriage between her and John.
Hope Im making sense here.

regards
Bennett

Hi Bennett,
Yes, you're making sense!  ;D
I think it would be best to look in the BMD indexes either online or in person.  That way you will find the second marriage.
I've looked in 1891 but I can't seem to find a match for Louisa under either surname.  Could be mistranscribed, though.

Hi Prue,
Thanks again for reply,
got a feeling about this one!!!!!!!
My grandmother Elizabeth  who was born in 1883,to Louisa,
never mentioned she had half brothers/sisters,only ever spoke about her mother,perhaps they were John Paul's children,and not Louisa's.
But that could be another story.
Seems as if I might have to actually go to records office,or pay to view.
I will post on here if I get any info.
Thanks for your help anyway.

regards

If the last post has been made as you are still looking for the marriage (some 14 years later) the simple answer is there wasn't one.   They appear to have been together from 1884/1885 but there was no legal union between them I'm afraid.
