Looking for information on the parents of George Robertson, born 1887 in Bristol, England

+3 votes
George William Robertson was born in Bristol on December 28, 1887, the son of William and Mary Ann Robertson. He got married in 1919 in Abbeville (France), his marriage record confirming his date and place of birth and naming his parents as William Robertson and Mary Ann Nott (or Pott), both deceased.

I was unable to find records directly concerning the parents (I use FamilySearch and am not used to researching England records). I'm looking for enough information to confirm the mother's maiden name and be able to start profiles for both parents.

Can you help? George Robertson is the ancestor of a living French notable (details withdrawn for privacy).

Thank you!
