    you do have a marriage for Florence to Peett and there is a birth for these in Farnham.

    I use FMP to search, you can then use GRO to confirm the details

    Dennis

    you don't have to subscribe to search, you can add mothers maiden name.

    I did have them on the tree for a while but then I discounted them because I don't think Florence was married. There is a death registered for her in her maiden name. There is no spouse for her in the photograph and I couldn't see why she would be married to someone so far from home when the whole family are very firmly based in Canterbury. There is a Florence May Barber born in Hampshire 1907 who I think is the one who married Peett

    There are some articles in the paper about Florence and Charles. His address is Victoria Row, Northgate, Canterbury whilst Florence is in Whitstable. They have seperated by 1930 and he wants to reduce his maintenance so it goes to the Canterbury Police Court.

    so it is likely to be right then, as they are back in the area.

    Yes, it looks as if I will have to reinstate them Maybe she reverted to her maiden name in later life. More investigation needed tomorrow.

    Night night all. And thanks again.

    There is another article it states that Peett is shop owner in Victoria Road. Would make sense that she reverted to maiden name.

    I really shouldn't be glued to the computer this morning - lots of other things need doing today but this is so intriguing. I've been back to FreeBMD and found that the marriage of Florence and Charles happened in the same quarter as the birth of Dennis in 1927. I'm guessing her father was not happy! No wonder she went a long way from Canterbury!

    More investigations needed - who needs housework!
