Well I have marriage certificate for her I think. However her father is put down as Arthur Architect. Her father is Richard Arthur Architect so it must be her because people with the name Getrude Bullivant are not thick on the ground and I can't find any other Arthur that's an architect. All I can think is that he wasn't at the Wedding which is strange because she was underage at the time as she was 20 and the marriage was by banns not special license. Her grandfather was Richard and her cousin so maybe he called himself Arthur and she didn't realise his first name was Richard. What do you think?

Hi Duckweed,

Personally I would be 99 per cent sure this is the right one. My gt gt gran had her fathers name as Thomas on her marriage certificate and being a Davies didnt help, but it turned out his first name was Charles and his middle name Thomas as per his sons marraige certificate.

She married in 1915 so can't check census. No children down on Husbands war record attributed to her, and it will be a heck of a wait till 1921 census gets out. But its a rare name and I don't think there were lots of architects by the name of Bullivant so I'm saying it is her. Maybe she will turn up as a witness to a wedding, or a death and I'll know for sure or some relative witnesses her death. There's none of her family as witnesses at the wedding.
