    Just had a quick look and it doesn't appear that Ada's husband David Brown is related to my Browns, who incidentally ended up in Nottingham too! Elaine I may ask you later for info re burials etc. , thank you for offering.

        Going through the descendants and was interested to see that Ada's son David Vincent Brown was baptised at the same time as Kate's daughter Constance Smith.

            Mostly, just a couple of Henry Edwards children to sort out, then on to the rest of Eliza's siblings. I think I am still missing some of the babies who died young, but will go back later and have another look. What I am missing however are the deaths for William and Kate Smith - too many to choose from!

              Too many Hunt's sometmes too! I found a lot from the papers on one branch because there are a few that join the military and the name Valentine appears periodically to help but usually hinder, one of them uses the name out of the blue on his death certificate and nowhere else.

              Some of them are non-conformists, this is good to have for reference, 3 sets of baptisms from 1837-1988

              Can I help with Kate ?

                Did you come across military records for a William Cecil Smith born Thurmaston 1898 ?

                https://www.findmypast.co.uk/transcr...7329891/32/876

                He is a painter, NOK William Cecil Jacques 104 Humberstone Lane, Thurmaston, is dated on the transcription as 1915.

                    Think I have just found William and Kate senior on the 1939. Kate is transcribed as being born in 1878, but it looks like 1873 to me, so the dates fit with what we know. They are in Barrow upon Soar.

                        Found Kates death - 26 Aug 1958. She had a will and probate was to William Cecil Smith.

                          As far as I can see there are 3 possibilities for William Sr death - Dec Q 1940, Mar Q 1946 or Jun Q 1958, all in Leicester. This is assuming he used his correct date of birth. Will probably never know unless the death cert is purchased.

                              you would think with Smith they would have given him a middle name!

                                In some documents I have seen him referred to as William Cecil Smith also, but he didn't use the Cecil all the time.

                                  I think this might be William - died in March 1946, as his birthday was in October that would have made him 69. His address is Melton Road, Syston. In the 1939 he and Kate were living at 181 Leicester Road, Syston, but looking at an old map Leicester Road was at some time renamed Melton Road.

                                        I think I have found Constance - she married George Ernest Scholefield on 10/9/1921 in Leicester - age, father's name and father's profession (according to 1911 census) all match. Sadly she died in Mar Q 1922, possibly in childbirth. I have found a child born to this couple in that quarter who emigrates out to Australia with her father in 1924 (under 100 year limit and have not yet found a death so can't put up details).

                                        Could someone have a look and see if they think my thoughts are correct. Thanks

                                          Is that his parents that they are travelling with to Australia, if so it all seems to fit.

                                          Not looked too closely but can see a marriage to Walters and a death in 1991
