Hi Michelle and welcome
I'm sure the members will be of great help to you.
Free BMD have the marriage in Gateshead in June 1911.
Anc## have it apr-june qtr.
Possibly Arthur was single when the 1911 census was taken?
We cannot forward details about him, as there are copyright issues with findmypast.
However we can look in the free index, juggling his birthplace.
ozn :)

Alice 1915 then a gap to John J 1922 & Ronald 1925 all Gateshead maiden Steel

In 1911 there is an Arthur Webster overseas military bn 1889

Hi again :)
I put in Staffordshire & Scotland & Arthur never turned up.
When I just put England, he popped up.
Which has narrowed the birthplace.
It's a pay per view site.

The only Arthur Webster c1888 I could see, was born in Rotherham, Yorks.

But the only Arthur Webster that I can find that's close, is born in Sheffield, which is not far from Rotherham.

1891 census.

Henry Albert Webster-29. b.Sheffield. Occ. Cutler/Table knife Haffer.:confused:
Harriott Webster-22. b.North Wingfield, Derbyshire.
Minnie Webster-7
Albert Webster-3
Arther Webster-2
Ethel Webster-10 months.

All children born Sheffield.

Oooops. Sorry. The Arthur Webster I found was born SHEFFIELD in the later census, in the Army.

Private 2nd Yorks. Lancs Regt.

He is at Farnborough, Hampshire, with the Regt.

Sorry. I mis-read his p.o.b.

Hi Steve
Loolabell has seen the latest census.
the post of 1901 census - too many coincidences for it not to be correct. Mothers name -Alice, Albert's first child -Alice, - Albert born Burton Staffs but latest census living Durham, a few months before marriage there. - His family had been in Scotland around 1904. -He married 1911 but first child 1915, but then a break (presumably he's in the army) before 2nd child in 1924. It all fits

Top marks Dave.;):)

Confused me a bit, but I'm glad he's sorted out.:2fun:


Forgot to mention. I wasn't going bonkers, as there is/was another Arthur Webster c1889. Rifleman in the 4th - Kings Royal Rifles Co. Born Rotherham, Yorks. Occupation Stamper.

The Kent Rifles appear to be in Delhi, India.

Hi see page 1, the 2nd child was born 1922 not 1924.
In the census 10yrs after 1901
Arthur was a baker born Hastings Sussex
rifleman with 4th KRRC (King's Royal Rifle Corps)
The chap listed previously as a stamper born Yorks, his name was Ernest not Arthur.
The Military Grass Farm at Fort Delhi India

If you look at the original image Oznan, you can see the mistake about his p.o.b as Hastings. ;):)

If you scroll up to the top of the original image, you can work out the error for all of those on that page.:eek:
