Family History of Jesse Anthony, Irene E and Miriam Gaskin of Oxford pre 1964


I am looking for information about my birth mothers family. They immigrated from England to Australia 1964. I met my birth mother in the mid 90's but due to family situation I was unable to learn much about her family. She had no near relatives in Australia. Her mum had already passed when I met her and her father already had dementia and passed away a couple of years after I met Miriam. My birth mum developed early onset Alzheimer's and passed away last year. I would love to be able to find out more of that part of my history. I have limited details at this stage as I am just starting out.

Mother: Miriam Gaskin born December 1952 in Oxford.
Grandmother: Irene E Parchment born mid 1912 in Hackney, her mother's maiden name was Davies.
Grandfather: Jesse Anthony born early 1914 in Aylsham, his mother's maiden name was Winterbone

I can not find any record of Irene and Jesse's marriage but Irene did use the name of Gaskin so I assume that they were married.

Sorry that is about all I have. If anyone has any information or just general advice it is all very appreciated.

I have been unable to order their Birth Certificates [thought that would be a good place to start]. From some reason the confirmation email from HM Passport Office will not come through my to may email so I can't register to order.

Thanking you in advance
