    No, there is only one birth certificate. You will see that the reference number is the same for both entries. An index is just a finding aid, so both surnames are indexed to make it easier to find...

    Parents not married to each other. This means the child can use either surname and the double entry in the indexes is just a cross referencing aid. I think these day the registrar asks which surname...

    Libby

    Most of my Lancashire lot were nonconformists. I have one Roman Catholic couple who married in the parish church and the parish register entry reads "married in the vestry". I've often...

    An informant or witness has to be old enough to understand what it is they are informing or witnessing, so 13 does not seem too young. In 1902 a 12 year old girl could marry with the consent of her...

    Kat post #22.

    If JHF,s will was dated in 1972 he can't have died during the war, is what I was going on to say.

    Ooh, Kat, someone else has this (illegitimate daughter of mother named) but when we discussed it, we decided the mother had insisted her name was on the certificate! I THINK that if you married in...

    I think the John H Foster killed in the war cannot be your man. Lottie and Louie both married a man called John H Foster and I think it would be stretching coincidence too far if two sisters msrried...

    Sylvia

    I have Scottish certificates which say "illegitimate" but not English ones. I have also often seen illegitimate in a parish register, but never on an English certificate.

    That looks good. So, one man marrying two sisters.

    Quick answer, one man married two sisters.

    Slow answer - the outline of the names Louie and Lottie is almost identical, so I would want to see them both alive in 1901 to make sure they weren't the...

    Gloryer, I don't think a certificate ever has the word "unknown" on it where the father's name should be as registration doesn't require that. It will be left blank with a line through it.

    You...

    If neither of them knew their father's names (illegitimate in other words) then that section would be left blank. I have quite few marriage certs with blanks where the father's name ought to be.

    Toby

    Beatrice's maiden name was Gill for the birth of Reginald, so you probably do have the correct marriage.

    The record would have been retrospective, so she may well have been Mrs Evans by...

    Sounds worth a punt to me. I was going to suggest you order it the old fashioned way and put qualifiers in, but you can't really do that in this case. Good luck!

    Yes! Just about every marriage cert in my family contsins at least an exaggeration and some have downright lies. Others I suspect the Vicar wasn't concentrating when he wrote down information.
