Mystery - James Hardy b 1869

No sign of him anywhere until he pops up again in 1911 married with a son Frank age 11:

There are two possible marriages: Amelia Lees 1892, 6d 284, line-267 and a Elizabeth or Mary 6d 630, line 236 both Aston area.

Can anyone on here help fill in the gap - where he was? and his marriage? which produced a son Frank.

Thank you for any help in solving this mystery.

Found 2 marriages for Henry(Harry) in Aston
Mar 1892
Henry Hardy - Elizabeth Burnham

Jun 1896
Harry Hardy - Elizabeth Beresford

Take your pick!

Peter

The first one is wrong as Henry father is listed as a William!

He didn't marry Elizabeth Burnham, that Henry's father was William. Can't comment on Elizabeth Beresford, because that record isn't available on Birmingham Marriages and Banns.

Henry hardy birth:

Marriage to Elizabeth Beresford:

http://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bi...42087449717z0q26pgz0q3d32768z0q26pgplz0q3dpid

Death for Henry:

http://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bi...42087449717z0q26pgz0q3d32768z0q26pgplz0q3dpid

Cannot find a death for Elizabeth Hardy (nee Beresford) Help please?

Frank Hardy - have his birth, but cannot find any other siblings for Henry and Elizabeth?

Found a death for a Elizabeth Beresford d1954 9c, 276 but in her maiden name!! any good?

Think I have found a marriage Frank Hardy - Primrose Rudge:

http://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bi...42339705156z0q26pgz0q3d32768z0q26pgplz0q3dpid

But cannot find any children of this marriage.
