Hello, I need help as I'm confused after receiving a Birth Certificate for Isaac Bainbridge (my Great Grandfather). The certificate shows he was born 5th Jan 1839 in Bowes in the counties of Durham & Yorkshire. Where I'm confused is that his mother is shown on the cert' as Dorothy Bainbridge formerly Bainbridge! My tree on Ancestry and the trees from others searching the same family tree, show her maiden name as Law.

If it is formerly Bainbridge, is it possible she might have been married to another Bainbridge who died. How do I find the answer?

I would be grateful for any help or advice.
