    Dave I think you could be a genious! We've been trying to solve this family mystery for years and you do it in a day lol ..... It certainly looks like it could be the Margaret & Mary we've been searching as when I've checked Mary's marriage certificate is has her fathers name as being John...

    Thanks Dave, I had came to the same conclusion, but after going through some old emails from a family member it seems the Margaret Potts I should be looking for was born 1883 and she married someone called Pickering. I have found a marriage for a Margaret Ann Metcalf who married George Pickering...

    After digging through some old stuff I had on my pc it seems this could be the wrong family altogether :rolleyes:. The Margaret (Ann) Metcalf I should be searching for was born abt 1883 and married a George Pickering in 1903. If she appears in any census' with her parents in Sunderland it would...

    Sorry for late reply Dave I went to bed to think about this (it's a puzzle I'd like to solve once and for all) and was thinking the same as you that maybe Mary was the adopted sister of Margaret. To be honest my husband and I had never heard of Margaret until yesterday morning so all we know...

    That Mary does fit in with the age Mary would be if rumours are wrong and she hadn't lied about her age to get married, she would have been born 1889. Her death certificate has her date of birth as 14th July 1889, I don't know if there was a time limit in those days for registering a birth...

    Thanks for all the work you've put in Dave, I'm just about ready to give up on her now, I just can't find out anything about her. Only thing I can think of now is trying to find her older sister Margaret on the 1891 census when (if I've been informed correctly) she should be about 8 years old...

    Thanks again Dave, at last someone who comes to the same conclusion I have ..... that that is the Mary Elizabeth on the 1901 census that we're looking for. On that census it has the parents surnames down as potts, however the mother it seems had been married before and her previous husband was...

    Thanks a lot Dave, that's definitely them! Going off the age of Mary Elizabeth on the 1911 census she was born in 1889 (or has she lied about her age on census returns too). The more I find out the more I think she was actually born in 1889, just we haven't been able to find a record of her...

    Everyone in the family is puzzled by my husbands grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Metcalf, later Mary Elizabeth Hunter. Her Marriage certificate states that she was born 1889 in Sunderland but no one can find a birth for her around that year. It's rumoured amongst the family that she was actually...
