Trying to get details for Birth Certificate

Postby ColinW » Thu Feb 20, 2020 6:44 pm

On my ‘Charles Henry Evans Bowhay’ (1901 – 1971) birth certificate it has his dads name ‘Charles Frederick Brooking Bowhay’.

When I search for the birth of Charles Frederick Brooking Bowhay (1867? could be wrong – 1951) it never comes up with the ‘Brooking’ part of his name.

I am trying to get the details to send off for the birth certificate, can anyone help please, thank you.

One of my greatgrandfathers, used the name Frederick Bailey Thompson ( or Frederick Thompson Bailey)
He was illegitimate, and christened Frederick Thompson. His mother Sarah Thompson, married John Bailey shortly after, and I suspect he was his actual father.
In your case, look for a birth or christening for a Charles Frederick Brooking, who I suspect was also illegitimate. Then look to see if his mother married a Mr Bowhay.

Hello Colin - the usage of the "Brooking" name in the Bowhay family can be found in this article:
