I am trying to trace my nans family tree, my nan was born Nancy Stallard, she was born 1915, her mother was Sarah (hill) father was Harry (stallard) from Oxford or surrounding areas, Sarah was also married to a Percival Selwood around 1910, an another marriage which was in birmingham to a Samuel Mountain around 1920's.
My nan has many brothers and sisters born in the oxford (wallington) and birmingham area.

what i have so far is, Sarah nee Hill married a Percival Selwood in 1910, she then must of married Harry Stallard, Had 2 children Albert, and Nancy, i then believe she went on to have a 2nd daughter Rosalie, But was Fathered from the 1st marriage (percival). I am not sure if she divorced these people, but her 3rd and final marriage was to Samuel Mountain.
Can you find any records of Harry Stallard? as we believe he may of been killed in the war.
Thanks for your help.

Hi Kelly,

You would need Harrys marriage certificate which will confirm fathers name and occupation, which at the moment is a bit elusive.

Harry Stallard who died in 1916 age is 34, which gives his year of birth about 1892. Going by the Birmingham area have come across this one for 1901

Civil parish Aston Manor
RD Aston
Sub RD Aston Manor

Alfred D Stallard head age 39 occ labourer ammunicition worker
Harriett E wife age 38
Elizabeth dau age 16
Gertrude dau age 15
Ron son age 13
Harriett dau age 7
Harry son age 9
Annie dau age 4
Joseph son age 2

This is no guarentee that this is the Harry Stallard you are looking for.

as far as i am aware, Harry was born around Oxford, or that surrounding area, as i am 100% sure his second born child Nancy was born in pangbourne/oxford down on paper as Bradfield.
I think the entry for Harry Stallard is the one born 1882, in farringdon,
is there a list of possible brothers/sisters linked to Harry of Farringdon??
