re your William C,I know off will topic but do you have his birth ? does 1910 fit in with his age at death as there is a Bedwelty birth on Free BMD site.I know its transcribed as William G but on looking at the original scan it could also be a C.
Just a thought and good luck with your...
Would very much like to have details of Margaret Murray born Stoke Newington circa 1832. She would be unmarried at this time and possibly with her parents James and Mary Ann and maybe a sister Esther /Hester.Her fathers occupation merchant clerk.
I have used this site and as previously stated,any avenue might help.
Their email advise of new messages to the user subscribed counties etc is interesting and has been of use to me in the past.

There should be a son Edward John age about 3, born in 1888.
Thank you Julie,
This family is indeed a difficult one to unravel. Although the given birthplace for James Snr was Suffolk,family are sure he was actually Irish as stated later. I think there was an error with the Suffolk bit but thought I would ask anyway.
I am sure I have the correct family...
If at all possible I am seeking information about James Donovan born circa 1851-1856. I know very litttle about him at present except that on the 1891 and 1911 census his birthplace states he was born Hadleigh Suffolk. I would like to know if there is any entry for any possible match.
