Marjorie Honor Taylor

Anne Report 16 Jul 2013 11:12

I am trying to find out information about the above who was born in Redcar, Yorkshire in 1906 or 1907, daughter of George Everitt Taylor and Victoria. She was living with my grandfather Norman Howard Kidson in the 1970s and is described as his wife Marjorie Honor Kidson on his death cert in Worthing, Sussex in 1978. I believe she subsequently married Harry Voakes and was living in Bognor.

I understand she may have had a daughter and I am interested in finding our about the last years of my grandfather's life (he separated from his wife in 1947). Any information would be much appreciated.
Anne Kidson

would the daughter be with Norman or before they got together?

Although Harry probably registered Marjories death, it might have been another relative. Even if you only bought Harry's DC, the informant might have some family knowledge about her presumed daughter.

As you've been a member for a number of years, you probably know where to purchase certificates.

You could check with the Probate office to see if she left a Will naming her. They would make a search once you have details of her (Marjories) Place of Death. I think it costs £6 but they don't tell you if there is no result!

well she married as Kidson

Spouse Surname: Voakes
Date of Registration: Aug 1989
Registration District: Chichester
Inferred County: Sussex
Volume Number: 18

mathamatically if Norman Kidson separated from his wife in 1947 then Marjorie would have been c41 so probably didnt have the child with Norman

True DET and theres a Jean R Kidson born in 1947 Hammersmith mmn Taylor

Its possible I guess .and it fits with a 1947 separation from his wife

As the birth reg is on Freebmd , that's another certificate that Anne may want to purchase.
