    John S Mussell Should be dead !!!!

    Hello Voilet M E Handscomb married in the July Quarter of 1947 Bishop's Stortford ,Vol 4b Page 66 but when I checked Mussell John S he married a Baker or Handscomb it showed vol 4b page 56 so I do not understand , as far as I know both people are now dead, John should have died just after WW2 (according to family lore) but I cannot find him anywhere Can you please Help

      HI


      Just had a look to see what you mean and I saw John S Mussell reference read the same as Violet on that marrige entry that being 66. And yes it did show Baker or Handscomb.


      So I checked surname Baker for the smae year and quarter and found this


      Violet M Baker marrying a Mussell in the same district but with the other Ref of 4b page 56


      Maybe whoever was copying the indexes up to the original records simply made a mistake.

        Thank you for that Wendy. I have still not been able to find his death, or hers, for that matter

          did they have any children - trying to narrow down search field for his death.

          family lore says he died just after WW2- does it remember where or in what circumstances?

            The two surnames for Violet would normally mean one was her maiden name an the other her previous married surname. They did this for a few decades during the 20th C. Can't explain the variable page number though. Probably a repeated copying mistake.

              John and Violet had 1 daughter born in Brighton in 1950,as far as I have learnt, I was told that he , John " Gas himself in the over just after the war") My Aunt who is in her mid 80's wants to know what happened to Violet after John's death as there have lost touch, and her reasoning is-- I and You all found them--, finding what happened to John & Violet should be " a walk in the park " Ha!!! Ha !!! So I must find John's death so as I can track Violet

                            i'm still looking

                            have gone up to end of 1955, and I cant see it, so if it was *just after the war* its wasn't very **just after**

                              Jess - longshot - there is a John A. in q2/1950, age 51 Liverpool N 10d/255.
                              I'll do 1959 and 1960.

                                if you know for certain that the daughter born in 1950 was the one i found, you might be better looking for her marriage.

                                Jools - there are odd deaths for johns around the country ,in the years that i have searched - i formed the asumption that as whtai thought was his wife had died in Hove, and the daugh was born in Brighton, that he'd have died in that neck of the woods.

                                  Aha - is this a possible?

                                  q3/1960 MUSSELL Stanley J age 40 Aldershot 6b/27

                                  UPDATE - no other likely candidates in 1960 OR 1959.

                                  Sheila - when was the elusive John S born?

                                    So are we saying Violet was only 21 when she married John Mussell, but she had already been married once?
