    Missing Marriage

    Can anyone help suggest where to look for a marriage that seems impossible to find?
    I have a birth cert and death cert for Eric Meacher 1915-1989.
    His wife was Eveline/Evelyn - they had sons born 1940's and 1950's, Hampshire.
    She was Irish born 1911.
    Searched in vain for many years so if anyone can help please do. Thanks.

        What was the maiden name of the mother of the boys born in the 1940/50's? Not the boys' names in case they are still living.

        OOps didn't see you there Val.

              I can only see Garrett as a mmn having 3 Meacham boys during 1940/50's - all the others have girls too.
              To match the Evelyn Val posted there is this one:

              Births Dec 1911
              Garrett Evelyn L??? mmn Garrett Christchurch 2b 1189

              It is possible they never married.

                  Clutching at straws here lol!

                  There is an Evelyn Warren on 1939 register married to Arthur Ed Warren living Portsmouth with birth date 2 April 1911 as the death reg posted above.
                  https://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bi...off=&ml_rpos=1

                  The marriage was:
                  Marriages Dec 1928

                  Spencer Evelyn Portsmouth 2b 1411
                  Warren Arthur E Portsmouth 2b 1411

                    She may be the one who married William J Ventham in 1929. If so, seems possible she was never free to marry.

                    Edit - or maybe not!

                      Garrett Evelyn M Ventham Bourne 7a 1829 - mistranscribed as Bourne instead of Bournemouth

                      Marriages Sep 1928
                      Applin Albert E Bailey Bournemouth 2b 1829
                      Bailey Edith A Applin Bournemouth 2b 1829
                      Ventham William J Garrett Bournemouth 2b 1829

                      You could be right OC it is Evelyn M

                      Edit: 1939 register Evelyn M Ventham 29 Nov 1902 :(

                            We haven't heard from the poster yet to verify they are Garretts, OC. They were the only ones I could see for Meachers in Hampshire with just sons that had been suggested by in the 1st post.

                              Rosie said that Evelyn was born in Ireland though

                              Also, Eric was Eric Victor Meacher according to the death ref. Born 20th Jan 1915 mmn Cook.

                              Births Mar 1915 - MEACHER Eric V Cook Southampton 2c 119

                                Yes agreed Chrissie but if you have been looking for "many years" then I think you have to start looking for other options. We know people lied about or guessed about where they were born, married etc etc.

                                Edit : I did look for Evelyn/Eveline Garrett births in Ireland but not found.

                                  Yes, I could only see births for males with Garrett as mmn.

                                  We need the poster to return!

                                      Just done a quick check of maiden names for Meacher children born in Hampshire between 1940 and 1960 (there may have been girls who died young and the poster doesn't know). I can identify nearly all the marriages and none are anything like Eric V to Evelyn. Garrett is the only maiden name which does not match to a marriage. Bossley doesn't match a marriage either, but there is only one birth with that mmn.

                                        Of course there is always the other possibility that Evelyn lied about her age, as she was already admitting to about 4 years difference. There are loads of possibilities in 1911 of Evelyn and Eveline.
                                        Of course that wouldn't explain the lack of a marriage.
