I'm interested in the Rev Ernest Charles POTTER who died in Kempston in 1947. He was a master at Bedford Modern School from 1924 until his death. In the local electoral registers in the 1930s he is shown in Rutland Road, Bedford with a Emma Rebecca Potter, presumably his wife (he didn't have a sister as far as I know). However I have been unable to find a marriage which fits. If he was married, I believe he was either divorced or separated in the late 30s. He was ordained about 1910 so may have been married any time after that but before the mid 30s. I would be glad of any information about his marriage and about any children of that marriage

red mail York/Alexander
I am trying to trace Ethel Eliabeth York b 1888 Kempston Beds, married Archibald Alexander, one daughter I can find Helen, can anyone help please? Thanks
Trying to trace the TAYLOR family from mid 1700's back. Henry TAYLOR married Elizabeth POLLARD 11 Oct 1760 in Kempston. They had 7 children (including 2 sets of twins, the first of whom died as babies). Children were William and Samuel born and died 1761, Samuel b 1762, Mary b 1764, Elizabeth b 1766, Anne and John b 1771. There is a record of a Henry TAYLOR marrying Sarah KING in Kempston in 1741 but there do not appear to be any baptism records for their children. Was this Henry one of them? There are also later marriages of a King TAYLOR in Kempston, making me wonder if they are all related. Again, I have not been able to find any baptism records for that family as yet. I have also not been able to find any details on the family of Elizabeth POLLARD. Any help anyone can give would be appreciated. Thanks. Lis
