Hi Kmarie.

Welcome to FHUK.

I also have Essex relatives.

I found this, Florence Hawkins, mothers maiden name Barton, reg June quarter 1925 in Tendring district ref Vol 4a Page No 1363

So now we need to look for a marriage of a Hawkins to a Barton.

Hi Kmarie

In the Dec 1907 quarter a George Hawkins married and on the same page was a Grace Barton. Vol 4a page 1261.In the Tendring district.

It does look like they had several children including Florence.
