    Default Oscar Movley

    I am trying to find information about Oscar Movely, Father of Gertrude. Gertrude was born 1882 and died 1917 in Hunslet, Yorkshire. She married William Joseph Eagers 9/12/1908 in Leeds. Any help would be most welcome.

    The marriage index for William Joseph Eagers shows two entries for spouse, one for Gertrude MOVLEY and one for Gertrude MOOLEY. There is a marriage image from the West Yorkshire Marriages and Banns on Ancestry for an Oscar Ellis MOOLEY to Louisa MISDALE in Leeds All Souls 1881, banns being read on Oct 30, Nov 6 and Nov 13. His address was Carlton Cross St and hers was Portland Crescent

    Looking at the original image it could be read as either MOVLEY or MOOLEY

    Thanks very much, that all ties in as William and Gertrude had a daughter named Louisa (after her grandmother). Louisa was my grandmother. William Joseph Eagers was a professional rugby player with Hunslet.

    Oscar Ellis MOVLEY died June qtr 1908 Tadcaster RD, aged 51. The spelling definitely seems to have been MOVLEY, which is why it so often gets transcribed as MORLEY

    Yes, now I can see that Whip Hotel is clearly what it says on the 1901 census. I had only got as far as realising it wasn't Ship
