    See the original post. Marj said her marriage had her as Eliza Ann - and this is presumably from a certificate or register, since Marj gave the exact date.

    1871 census was also mentioned - the...

    I had a quick look at this, and I think you can probably discount the Jenkins-Parslow and Jenkins-Pound families.

    Parslow - using the GRO birth index, I found 4 children: Alexandrina Victoria (Jun...

    In case anyone is thinking of taking this further, it might help you to know that there's a current thread on another forum where members have been looking at this same question. I haven't read every...

    Looking at the probate calendar, this was an administration, not a probate - in other words, there was no will. It's very unlikely that you'll find anything useful in the papers that you can order,...

    Actually FindMyPast have earlier registers too, just not indexed. So I've found the marriage, and as Dundee10 says, it was at St Bridget, Baldwin's Gardens, Holborn.

    Looking again at the first extract, if we accept that some of the z's are a bit more rounded than others, then I think it could be read as Waszczyszyn. (Still no idea about the initial I, though.)

    No, but I'm not an expert in either London or RC churches/records. All searches I've tried seem to end up at St Bride's, Fleet Street, which is Church of England.

    Hmm, this one looks to me possibly more like Iwaszczyszyn. The letters that I've transcribed here as 'z' all look the same to me, so I'm hesitant to read one of them as 'r'.

    On the other hand, it...

    I haven't had chance to check registers etc, but by just looking at FreeBMD for a Cornelius in Middlesex in 1855 I've found an entry for Cornelius Grant in Holborn in the June quarter - ref 1b 592.

    As far as I can see, there's just one entry on the Cheshire BMD website, for Allan Clayton in 1915 in the Prestbury sub-district.

    To confuse matters, there's a Thomas Clayton in 1916, also in the...

    I'm not in any way questioning the man's achievements or what has been found about him, but I'm afraid this anachronism grated slightly:

    Hi Ian, and welcome.

    The lack of a record at the GRO probably means that the person died outside England and Wales. For tax purposes, domiciled isn't always the same as resident - and those who...
