Walker twins born 1943
I'd love some help with this puzzle (and it would save me buying certificates!) - two boys were born in Howden registration district in 4th quarter of 1943. Geoffrey Walker and John Walker, mother's maiden name Jarred. I'm guessing they were twins and I also think both died in infancy. Does anyone know of a grave for these two - or can shed any light on their parents? Any help greatly appreciated. I think their father was John Emmerson Walker, an aircraft engineer.
red mail Constable family
Robert Constable - residence Asselby/Howden c.1792 onwards. Appealing for any information, particularly burial.
red mail Hannah Maria DOVE? / FOSTER?
Hannah Maria was born circa 1871 in Spaldington and married Joseph? GRAVES in the early 1890's to whom she bore three sons - John J (1893), Joseph A (1894) and Walter (1896). It is possible that she lived in the West Riding (Dewsbury) at this time but returned to Hemingbrough as a widow by 1901 when she married my Great-Grandfather Thomas BAINES to whom she bore another three children - my Grandmother, Hilda (1902), William (1906) and Eva (1908). I am finding it difficult to confirm her maiden name but I think it is either DOVE or FOSTER but cannot be sure - any information forwarded would be welcomed.
