Hello Barbara,

Did he marry 3 times?

Bays Alfred Charles Newington 1d 282
Beacham John William Newington 1d 282 **

...Messrs E. J. and A. C. Bays returned to England in January, 1862...

Sorry. Damn that :2fun: we have 2x A. J. - a cousin Arthur Charles.

So I don't know when Alfred Charles returned to England.

Thanks Barbara.

No, my error. Edmond John and Arthur Charles are twins. :D

So it looks as though Alfred got back before his cousins and married in 1860 and again in 1866.

Please look for 1861 and 1871.


Will do

Guess you want me to look for Alfred Henry?
Thanks for A C. :) Those ages are 10 years out.

No thanks for Alfred Henry. This branch of the tree stops here. Just completing the spouse of Henrietta NOBLE.


Found Alfred Henry with his father in 1881. do you already have that.

Am having trouble finding him in 1871 so will try other website.

also found Arthur Charles in Peterborough in 1911, do you have that one?

Thanks Barbara. Have 1881 at #7.

No, not doing the cousins.

Complete thanks. :)

I'm probably about 10 marriages sideways on my tree already. All branches stop at some point.
There is someone else chasing this family on A as that d o b was changed by someone.

Are you not bothered about Alfred H in 71 then?

I think IGI had 1833 but the actual baptism record has age 1 month.

I can't recall if I've been in contact with another researcher or not re BAYS - I have re NOBLE.

Ok fill the gap please in 1871 for Alfred Henry. :)
I have details already of Alfred Charles' parents Charles (he was a Hatter :biggrin: ) and Mary - birth/baptism, marriage and deaths.
