Hi
The C1911 would not be of any use ubfortunately as Thomas Davies was deceased before 1905, the date of my Grandfathers marriage, and this was entered on cert. Of course Thomas could have changed his occupation and not a Shoe maker by the time James was born.

Hi
The two Elliotts are Annies brothers, did not meet them but Walter Elliott died in WW1 and I visited his grave in Belgium last year. He died 26/6/1915 an was buried Poperinghe War Cemetery Belgium
Her other brother was Thomas b Sept 1878 in Chesterfield.
This side of the family is not so much a problem as I have quite a bit on the family.
Annies father was Walter Elliott b 1854 who married Ellen Walter b 1852. there was also another beother George b 1886 and a sister Sarah b 1871 who married a Henry Thorpe.
I can go back on some of this family and have found a fifth cousin in Australia, His great grandfather and my great grandfather (Walter) were brothers. Also I have received a substantial amount from this cousin.
Hope this helps
Cheers
Joyce
