George Munt death query , step son informant

Postby Simon45 » Tue Apr 16, 2019 8:09 am

How do I find out if this death certificate of George Munt is correct ?
He died in 1925 aged 67 which is very close to his date of birth 1857
The informant was his step son F Willis

I think he was married twice to
Elizabeth Emery ( 1880 ) and Harriet Walker ( 1899)

Any information much appreciated
Thank you
Simon

Hello
I've checked the wives, and the first was a spinster when she married ,the second Harriet Ellen Walker started life as Woodger but no sign of a son F.Willis ,although there is a son Sydney Walker age 18 on the 1891 census.
But Harriet died in 1911 and in 1912 in West Ham there is another marriage George Munt and Florence Wallace Mar qtr 1912.
It's not that far from Wallace to Wallis to Willis is it?
Could there be a third marriage with a son F Willis?
His Admin on the National Will index leaves £495 6s 6d to his widow Florence Munt

Hello Ciderdrinker
Thank you for the useful information
I will have a look to see if there is a son that Florence had from her marriage(s)

If you do find a son please let me know

Thank you
Simon

I have found George Munts will
The address is the same as his death certificate
So Florence was definitely his 3rd wife
Trying to find her in the 1901 and 1911 census records
Don’t know here date of birth or age though......?

Is this worth investigating? In 1911, George was living in Sibley Grove, Manor Park, E. Ham, with his wife Harriet, who would die soon after the census. Also in 1911, in Lucas Road, W. Ham, there's Flory Wallace, 40, a charwoman, and her son Fred, aged 7.

Hello
The nearest I can find for Florence is this in 1911
1 Lucas Road Abbely Lane West Ham
Flory Wallace 40 widow Charing Nayland Suffolk
Fred 7 son at school West Ham

I can't see her marriage and there are two possible births for Fred ,mother's maiden name Collins or Emery.

Hello
Thank you for the extra information
I’ll try and find anymore details

When a woman re marries for a second or third time it’s very difficult to know her maiden name to find her birth year

I will order her marriage certificate very soon as this will show her fathers name ( and her maiden name )

Thank you
