Hi all,

I have a family tree that says Alfred Henry ROBINSON was married to Amelia Catherine MATTHEWS. No other information on it - written on paper!! Only info was:
Alfred Henry ROBINSON b. 1856 in Bursledon, Hampshire...d. 21/1/1926

Found marriage registration:
4233/1888 ROBINSON ALFRED H HOWARD AMELIA C BRAIDWOOD

No other marriages by Alfred and Amelia's

Found a possible death for Amelia C. in 1934

Gail :)

I didn't get anywhere trying to find a HOWARD & MATTHEWS marriage or a birth for Amelia. I even looked for Caroline in case names were reversed since I got more hits for Caroline. :rolleyes:

Found that one:

MATTHEWS AMELIA 30 - JAN 1884 ORIENT B 429 005

I can't see a marriage in Victoria 1884 -1888 to a HOWARD.


There are several HOWARD and several MATTHEWS (Not + ) marriages in RD Braidwood.


So, 3 possibilities.

1) the info is incorrect

2) born MATTHEWS and married name HOWARD for 2nd marriage

3) mother's name is HOWARD and fathers name MATTHEWS but born before they married so married using mother's name.
