Hi Kedi,
What does it say for her place of residence at time of marriage and occupation of father on the cert and witnesses names.

Hi Steve.
Their residence was given as Puncknowle, and Her father was a labourer.
I have searched and searched but i have had no luck whatever.
Would she have been living in as a servant?. I cannot figure out why she is coming up nowhere. I know that they never had any children of their own.

I was hoping for the fathers occupation to be a bit more exotic than labourer, Patsy.:rolleyes: :)
Did Mary have an occupation on the cert.
Was it the same place of residence for George Courtney on the cert.
What were the witnesses names.

Sorry about all the questions, but it may help.

Hi Julie. Yes i have at last managed to find that on the 1901 census.
But as usual the surname was different once again it was spelt Jeffry?.

Fathers name was William and Mothers Eliza.
In the 1911 census found the name again, but the family was away from home,where were they?.

My family like to keep me guessing. I know my Mother used to live with them but she was only ever known to me as Aunt Beatty. How i wish i could ask a load of questions but of course its to late.

Still cannot find Mary Beatrice in the 1911 census.
