Married to Mervyn Gaines Kelston Tobin (b:1914/d:1970)

Children:Raymond,Jennifer,John,Diane,Barry,Robert and Michelle

Lived in Kent, both born Margate I think? Lived in Dover,Kent.:confused:

Are you sure she was born 1918 as the death in 2000 for Winifred Tobin district Thanet gives her dob as 19 Jul 1913 which then matches a birth registered for a Winifred Castle in 1913, Jul/Aug/Sept 1/4, district Thanet, mother maiden name Hills. Winifreds marriage certificate will give fathers name and occ, and her birth certificate will give parents names.

Birth

1913

Winifred Castle
District Thanet
Jul/Aug/Sept 1/4
Vol 2a
Page 2199

Mothers maiden name Hills

Hi Julie,

Wasn't sure, but have just spoken to my dad, and he seems to think that they were more or less the same age.

So must be the one (1913).

Will get the marriage cert ordered.

You didn't manage to find a marr date at all did you?

Thanks for your help, as always, much appreciated

Hi Julie

Must have been the 1930's - I think?

My dad was born 1943, and he had older siblings, so would think it was at least mid to late 30's.

Sorry it is very vague, but we have virtually any info here, really are working in the dark.............................

Thanks again Julie, you are star.

Sue xx:p :p

I have found a marriage between an Edward castle and a Florence Eva Hills in Thanet.The Reference is Mar 1900 Thanet Vol 2a Page 1285. These look likely to be Winifred's parents
