Not seeing a marriage for her at all.


Daniel Report 26 Oct 2011 22:53

My mum told me once that they might not have ever married. Possible scandal, I dont know?


chrissiex Report 26 Oct 2011 23:25

as Mike said, two threads for the two spouses in a marriage is not the way to do it, too much overlap, 'one thread per family'

here we get into Edward W E Stenning and why he and Elsie were not married

Name: Edward W E Stenning
Spouse Surname: Fenney
Date of Registration: Apr-May-Jun 1924
Registration district: West Ham

freebmd has the correct transcription

Marriages Jun 1924
Feeney Winifred C Stenning W.Ham 4a 843
Stenning Edward W E Feeney W.Ham 4a 843

so now I guess I should transfer that info to the other thread ..........
