    I can't find a birth registration for a Frank M Lowies 1893-1895 but there is this one
    François Mathieu Lowies March 1/4 1893 registration district Thanet Kent vol 2a page 946.
    There is also a Grace Margaret born 1896. Could your mother have been named after her father's sister I wonder? if I have the correct person of course. I am having a little difficulty finding them in the 1901 and 1911 census at the moment.
    Frank could have been born in Scotland or ireland of course which means searching on different sites.
    I am using ancestry which is a pay oer view site but some public libraries have a free version.

    The birth registration on the GRO index gives the mother's maiden name Doherty for Francois/Frank's birth and also for Grace Margaret's.
    In 1901 Grace Margaret is in the Nazareth Home Bexhill age 4. In 1911 she is with William and Margaret Yardley recorded as their niece born Margate, Kent. her sister Florence Helen age 13 is also with them.
    There is a marriage entry on FreeBMD the December 1/4 1891with a Mathieu Louis Lowies and a Helen Doherty on the same page.
    Of course it hasn't been established that Frank M Lowies is Francois Mathieu Lowies. Purchasing his and Sarah's marriage certificate from the GRO would give the couple's father's names and occupations.

    1901 census RG13 Piece 821 Folio 63 Page 9
    George Jury 46 head, Carter.
    Mary Jury 49
    Elizabeth Jury 13
    Sarah Jury 10
    George Lowies 45 boarder widower, luggage porter, born Belgium
    Francis Lowies 8 born Margate, Kent,
    Thom Lowies 7 Margate

    Death registration of Helen Lowies age 28 June 1/4 1900 vol 2a page 607 Thanet reg dist. So Mathieu Lois Lowies has changed his first name to George.

    Does any of this relate to anything you know of your family.?

    There is also a 1922 Kelly's Directory entry for Frank Matthew LOWIES which indicates him running a pub in Sheffield.

    What can I say to you all? Some of this I had discovered, but wasn't really that certain about. Having done some searching through some of the stuff left by my mother I discovered an original birth certificate for a John Auguste Lowies who I now believe may have been her father's brother. Some of which is confirmed by what you all have found. Why she had that certificate but not her father's is another mystery.

    I also now think the_aigh stands for Haigh. In the same materials I found a photograph showing a lady standing in front of a shellfish stall in a market. It's not very clear, but some bags hanging up appear to have the name William Haigh Briggs printed on them. Therefore much of this is beginning to tie up.

    Once again a very big thank you to everyone who has given up some time for this research.

    I did a quick run through FmP and found a marriage of Frank Matthew Lowies to Sarah Briggs in Eccleshall Bierlow 1921 2nd quarter.
    a 1922 directory shows FMLowies as a victualler at 22 Thomas St and also a victualler at Brunswick Hotel 54 Thomas St.
    There is also a death shown as 1st quarter 1951 and burial 24th Feb 1951 at City Rd Cemetery Sheffield.
    Birth year is shown as 1893 on burial record and 94 on death record.
    Ancestry has the Marriage and Death records as well and also has a probate record Probate to Lawrence Hector £106 6s 7d.
