Hi Pauline

Welcome to the forums.

When you say "Born Lambert" do you mean Lambeth?

Have you got their marriage certificate? This will give you their fathers names and occupations.

Hi Pauline,

Welcome to the forum.

Marriage Index:-

In 1874 there is a marriage for a Emily Amelia Wood one of the grooms listed is a Thomas John Clark.

District St. Olave, Southwark, county London, Surrey
Jan/Feb/Mar 1/4

As Ben said you will need to get the marriage certicate to confirm fathers names and occupations.

Hi Julie
I Got A Copy Of The Marrage Certificate,This Is Where It Gets Confussing.
It Does Say Emily Wood And Thomas Clark,Also Got My Grandfathers Birt CERT
Percy Alfred Clark.But She Did Not Put The Fathers Name On It.When My Grandfather Married He Put His Fathers Name As Alfred Clark,
When His Mother Emily Died He Put Fathers Name As Thomas Clark.
We Know His Father Had A Big Drink Problim Maybe He Changed His Name.
Many Thanks
Pauline

Looks like Emily in 1891

Civil parish Stone
Registration district Dartford


Alfred John Jewiss head age 41 occ house painter born Dartford
Min--- Jewiss dau age 14 born Dartord
Willie Jewiss son age 13 born Dartford
Percy Alfred Jewiss son age 5 born Dartford
Emily Amelia housekeeper married age 41 born Lambeth

Its funny that the son Percy is roughly the same age as Emilys Percy and both born Dartford, though could be a coincedence. Also head of house is Alfred!
