William J & Anne H PATTERSON


Loyal Member
Staff member

William J died 1965 Surrey N E.

Anne Hamilton PATTERSON died Merton, Devon in 1966.

They married in 1924 in Birmingham.

I'm wondering if the E/R will have a middle name for William.


Tree on ANC has middle name as Joseph....d 3 Mar 1965

Assume Merton, Devon was a mistype and you meant Merton, Surrey..

Hello trace,

Thank you very much.

Registration County : Greater London.
Created : 1.4.1965 (out of Surrey North Eastern registration district).

William's was Surrey N E, Surrey so that makes sense it must be Merton, Greater London for Anne.

Looking 1894-1896:

Births Jun Qtr 1895
Patterson William James Newcastle T. 10b 7
Patterson William James St. Saviour 1d 177

Births Sep Qtr 1896
Patterson William James Middlesbro' 9d 567
Patterson William John Whitehaven 10b 638

plus lots registered with just William.

Hi Dave

May not be a lot of help..

William J Patterson
Year: 1955
Ward: Sparkbrook
Street Address: 50 Ill [Image shows Tetley Road]
Place: Birmingham
[He's with and Agnes]

There are a couple in the home counties, but none with an Ann/Annie.

A couple of trees suggest he was b. Ireland.

Thanks Geoff.

It is possible he was born in Ireland. Anne was:

Name: Anne Hamilton Huggard
Event Type: Birth

The one fairly well documented tree has this, no way of proving it, but fits with age at death..

Civil Reg, births:
William Joseph Patterson

Thanks Geoff.

Almost no way of proving it. Somehow Anne from Cork and her mother Ellen ended up in England after 19 Oct 1916 when Ellen's spouse Charles died in Cork. William also ended up in England and they married in Birmingham in 1924. Sounds like a tree you can't believe. :biggrin:

Patterson William Joseph of 102 Hassocks Road London SW16 died 3 March 1965 at Wilson Hospital Mitcham Surrey Probate London 8 April to Eileen Margaret Patterson Spinster. £3927.

Thanks trace. :)

A bit more to add to my tree.

Eileen is the eldest daughter.
