Relatives of Florence Scott born May 1918

Post by juanita72 » Tue Jan 20, 2015 3:31 pm

Hello

My family are keen to find siblings of Florence Scott who was born in Driffield in May 1918. She was one of nine children, Mary, Tom, Mabel, Freda, Hilda, Harry Oswald, Herbert plus another we do not know the name of.

Her parents were Harry Scott and Sarah Jane Wardell although Harry seems to have changed his name to George by the 1911 Census.

Florence lost touch with the whole family during the Second World War and moved to Liverpool. Her sons are keen to find any living relatives or learn of any news about the family. Sadly Flo passed away last January and we are only now beginning to look into reasons for the loss of contact.

It really is a mystery we would like to solve. Many thanks.

You’ll need certificates to confirm the following, which are mostly assumptions.

Harry and Sarah married in 1895.

If you include Mary, this makes eight in all. I haven’t found a ninth birth, although there may have been one which was either not registered or indexed incorrectly.

I haven’t followed up any of these other children [YET] but I hope Mary’s line will give you a start.

Regards,
Ian

Births Jun 1900

SCOTT Tom Driffield

I haven't pinned down a marriage for Tom - there are too many possibilities.

He may have died in York in 1973

Name: Tom Scott
Birth Date: 6 Mar 1900
Date of Registration: Dec 1973
Age at Death: 73
Registration district: York
Inferred County: Yorkshire West Riding
Volume: 2d

Mabel may have married in 1920

Marriages Dec 1920 (>99%)
________________________________________
Scott Mabel E Wilson Bridlington
9d 883

Wilson Albert Scott Bridlington
9d 883


There are as many as eight Wilson/Scott births in East Yorkshire in the period 1920 to 1945.

Births Mar 1920 (>99%)

However, there are something like a dozen Wilson/Scott marriages in the region which may be parental candidates so identifying which children – if any – are Mabel’s is difficult without buying many certificates.

Mabel probably died in 1971

Name: Mabel Elizabeth Wilson
Birth Date: 14 Apr 1901
Date of Registration: Jun 1971
Age at Death: 70
