Which William John DREW in Mylor in 1891?

OK, back in touch with Maria and I'm close to being convinced that the William John DREW that married Julia Annie CAPLE, was living in Mylor in 1891, and is of the same age as William John DREW, son of Edward George DREW and Mary Ann REID, is not the son of Edward George DREW and Mary Ann REID.

He appears to be the son of another Edward George DREW, of a neighbouring parish.

So, folks, get ready to unlink Julia Annie CAPLE if you have added her on my advice. Very sorry about that. Also, the 1891 Census entry with Julia A as spouse and a couple of children is most likely to be very wrong.

FreeBMD seems not to have the marriage cert of William John and Julia Annie, but Maria assures me that the marriage took place in St Andrews, Redruth, in 1887.

Now, back to the search for our William John DREW after 1881.

No, I'm still alive

Just a quick note to say that I'm still alive and kicking, but have been a bit busy with elderly parents and their ailments etc.

I found this on flickr - worth a look.
