Hi Tim,

I've had a look on the partial bmd index but the Ancestry site started playing up. You could try Findymypast as the births and marriage could be in the overseas bmd seeing that William was in the army

luck, i had the buckinghamshire archives search for the first childs birth in wraysbury but they couldnt find it.

Hi Tim,

Could there be a possibilty that the parents never married and the children were under the mothers maiden name?

I had a look through 1871/81 census for a Louisa born Edwardstone and the only one that came up was a Louisa Lord but she married a FW Gibbons and they are together on the 1901 census.

Will have another look.

i did find a louisa death on the international igi born on the correct date and in edwardstone suffolk but never found her married certificate to william.
barnett. the strange thing is that the certificate i recieved for the son william barnett born in dover it said the mothers name was annie which was wrong but it had her second name as death same as the louisa i found could they be the same? but the farthers occupation is wrong.

Hi Tim,

Just a thought. What about parish registers for the childrens baptisms?

i ask buckinghamshire archives to look up sybil barnett but they couldent find her in wraysbury , i travelled down to canturbury archives to look for dorothy
barnett, i did find a dorothy annie it was the right place but two years out
and the mother was again this annie not louisa and the farthers occupation was a farm lab not a soldier.:confused:

thanks for everyones help its most appriciated

great news everyone O0 i managed to track down the marriage of william barnett and louisa.

louisa kember married william barnett in 1887 in the parish of river in the county of kent, i still have not been able too find the first child sybil barnett
born in wrasysbury in 1892 but this is a great start.

all i can say is stick with it guys and gals it does pay off in the end:) O0
