Family History Update

I don’t have any new updates to this side of the family at the moment, but here is the place to catch up on new information

I still have brick walls:

  • What was William Mathews/Matthews birth surname? His marriage certificate dated 1874 states that he was born in Baden, Germany and in the margin that his name was Matuist! I believe this to be the spoken version, not the written version. I haven’t been able to crack the code, so I have not yet found his first marriage back in England where he had three children. He was naturalised around 1875. Nothing like a challenge!
  • To be continued.
