red mail Angel or Ainsworth ??? Mystery.
The mystery concerning three of my ancestors is that they were all registered at birth as George Angel b1844, Charles Angel b1847 and William Angel b1849, but all married in Offley as George Ainsworth, Charles Ainsworth and William Ainsworth. George to Sarah Ward in December 1867, Charles to Ann Maria Gregory in December 1868 and William to Elizabeth Jarvis on 17 October 1868. The Death Register Records show the surname of 'Angel' for all three in 1929, 1930 and 1933. I would like to know why they married under the name 'Ainsworth' also where the Ainsworth name comes from?. All three were the son's of John Angel b1814 Kings Walden and Sophia Marshel b1813 Kimpton. I would really appreciate any help in solving this mystery, the Ainsworth name has also arisen in other areas that need investigation, so any information will be gratefully received Michael
