Hi,

Presuming that Grace was not illegitimate then her birth certificate should give her father's name and occupation, as well as her mother's maiden name.
FreeBMD has one entry for a Grace Beatrice Dennis in the 1890's

Dennis Grace Beatrice Sep 1894 Poole vol 5a page 257

There is also a ppssible marriage for her parents as well

Dennis Samuel Taylor Mar 1890 Poole vol 5a page 413

Samuel married either Elizabeth Preston or Elizabeth Hames Batt. The birth certificate for Grace will tell you which one by her mother's maiden name.

Hope this helps,
Emeltee

Big Thanks p.risboy, I seem to have that part of the ancestory now sorted out.:)
Have hit a brick wall though with the other side of the family tree if you can help out if it is no trouble.

Cannot find anything about Thomas Onions 1812-1899 parents or his wifes Mary Garvey. They had 6 children,
Mary c1837
Rebecca 1851
Bridget 1853
Ann 1856
Thomas 1858
John c1860

They may have origionally came from Ireland

regards

Dennis

OK Dennis,

Will see what there is. Ireland may be a bit problematic, but we'll give it a go.
