Catherine Wallace

Postby ColinW » Fri Dec 06, 2019 4:16 pm

My great-grandmother Catherine Wallace was born in 1887 Blackawton, Devon.

Death date Unknown

Son: Frederick Wallace Born 1906 Died 1971

Her Parents: William Wallace and Mary Ann Lang (This is what the search shows up)

Having done many searches on her name I just cannot find out anything about who her husband/partner was.

Can anyone help please?
Thank you.

Have you tried finding her in the 1939 Register with her date of birth (if known)?

Frederick was illegitimate and Catherine was still single in 1911 - what makes you believe she had a husband?

She's on a Tree with Leonard Friend supposedly married 1912 and there are a couple on the 1939 register that match.

Interestingly, she is with a Maud Mary Friend as servants in 1911. In 1901, she is with a brother called Leonard.

Might be worth looking at..

As Catherine's surname was Wallace and her son's surname was Wallace then I suggest that she was unmarried at the time of his birth, she was a cook in Exeter according to the 1911 Census. The closest I can come to a death entry is in the Torbay area of South Devon in the January-March quarter of 1975 but it says she was born in 1888.

Just noticed there is a birth of a Leonard W Friend, MMN Wallace 7/1912 Exeter. Death same month.

Probably why they married in April.
