    Compton/Poynter Marriage

    Feeling quite frustrated as I cannot find the marriage of Richard Garibaldi Compton to Ada Florence Poynter. The 1901 census shows Ada as single. By the 1911 census she and Richard had evidently been married 10 years. Blowed if I can track the information down. Any helpwould be appreciated. Cheers

    The Buffs

    Thanks for the offer. The name is Richard Garibaldi Compton & the date of birth is 19th January 1861; it is likely that he added a couple of years to his age to get into the army. Lynda
