Hi, i'm trying to find out if my granddad Thomas Lockwood had any siblings so i went on GRO and put his fathers surname and his mothers which is Norburn and found 3 children besides him, the names are Grace born 1898, died 1898. Annie Alberta born 1896 and Frances Mary born 1893. but i want to know how sure can i be that its the same mother? i have found a Frances Mary on the 1901 census living with Clara Lizzie Lockwood and Thomas( born 1899) any help and info will be gratefully received
Ann, you can be 99% certain. To be certain you need to find the children together with one or more parent in censuses. Alternatively you could buy a birth cert. The chances that there will be another Lockwood Norburn marriage in the same place in the same time period are very small. To give yourself even more confidence you could use FreeBMD to show that there was not another marriage. .
Hi Moira thanks for the info, i already have that info.
I'm actually trying to find out if clara and john had any more children?
Has you will see from my original post i have found two more and from looking on GRO it says mothers name Norburn.
i did what dave suggested and found one marriage in the time line and i also put in different years but didn't find any more marriages in the time frame. so hopefully these two are relatives of mine.
Anne. According to Gro Grace was born in 1898 died Age 8 in 1898, however her burial on this site says she was 8 months old not 8 years. Annie Alberta was born 1896 and died 1896 according to Gro.
