Marion lists David Boyde as her birth father but Thomas seems to be listed on her online trees.  I do not know how to prove her parentage .Her Victorian death certificate lists David Boyde and Isabella Fefft... Can anyone help me solve this please.

The data on death certificates is given by the informant who may not have known what his name at birth was. And he may have been called David by his friends and family.
Thank you   Audrey
