I matched the name Jane born in Cheshunt to all the men in this result and looked for her in the censuses.  The only one who matches was William Fryer.

Hello Christine,
Very many thanks for your reply.

Best wishes
Hello Howard,

Page 75

Here is the link for ordering on-line;
Again many thanks Christine,

I'll get on and order the marriage certificate.
Kind regards,
P.S. Are you a UK researcher, or based somewhere else. Just interested!!
Yes, I'm in the UK :)
Well you've provided me with excellent advice...thank you.
Don't suppose you know how to trace a Grandfather whose name was not shown on the birth certificate?
Ah no!  I'm afraid that is a dead end.  It most likely means that the mother was not married - the father would have had to be at the registration and agree to have his name on the certificate.
Thought that would be the case.
Thanks anyway :O)
Already ordered the Marriage Cert!
