St Albans, 1890-1950
Mrs E M Elvy (Emaye57
@t aol.com) of
Great Baddow, Essex writes that George
Augustus Davis and Lucy Green
were my father's parents and they were married at St.
Peters St. Albans 13.11.1892. I believe grandfather was born in East London but names in the bmd show only George A Davis and there are more than one. They
celebrated their Golden Wedding and I have a recollection of an article in the
St Albans Observer of a picture showing their golden wedding and 5
generations. If you could identify this article and (hopefully) if it gave the
places of birth of George Augustus Davis
and Lucy Green this was would nice. One of
my father's brothers was John Davis who
had a chemist shop(s) in the area and was a Mayor of Watford
in the 1940's or thereabouts.
Your best bet would be to contact the St Albans Observer via
their web site and they may be happy to send you a copy, particularly if you
couple it with a request for information from anyone who remembers them..
There may also have been coverage in the Hertfordshire Advertiser, 63
Campfield Road, St Albans.
George Augustus Davis and Lucy
Green should also be listed on the 1881 census CD - and if you know
their approximate years of birth and the names and occupations of their
father's (should be on their marriage certificate) you may well be able to
locate them - together with information on their parents and siblings.
There is a web page
for St Albans
If you can add to the information given
above tell me.
