Julia Nina,is the only Reverson registered birth I can find between the years 1864-1914
Good point!

I found that Brenda Williams one in the right time frame, but don't know if it's right? (can't see why it would be, but can't eliminate it)

If you want to send someone a personal message then you can click their name and there will be a link. Or I can move this thread (or your part of it!0) to our sensitive research board which can only be seen by our members.

I can't find and matches for either HenryCooper's only dau, Evelyn Cooper marrying a Reverson (or similar) or a Swann (Priscilla's previous name - she had several daughters) marrying similarly. Also no birth reg in Hendon district for Phyllis.

Wasn't Julia Nina registered in Hendon?? She would have only been 2¾ in 1911.
Oh and there is a connection between Cooper and Swan. Emily Swan's mother remarried to a Cooper. We think our Aunt Phyl lived with them in Tilbury for the first 6 years of her life (1907-13) before rejoining her sisters and her Mum. This might have been because Emily Swan was now with Ernest Simmons.
And I note the reference to William acting as executor to a Simmonds.

The sensitive area sounds just the job.

You are going to need this all typed out though aren't you? it would be quicker for me to do that on another computer before I have a breakdown (lol), but that will have to be a bit later on today.

Do you have the birth cert for Brenda? (just because this is the nearest to the 1911 census)
Thank you so much for the advice.
Unfortunately I don't have a birth certificate for Brenda and neither does her son. I have a copy of her marriage certificate (25th Jan 1936) which shows her as Brenda Audrey Reverson and father as James, Manager Sewing Machine Shop.
A typed up version bringing everything together would be marvellous. Thank you so much.

Yes, maybe I will leave this thread as it is here (if that's OK with you) and make a new one in Sensitive Research with the info in the right order (or a better order lol). I presume at this juncture you don't need so much info on Lucy as she isn't your relative, though of course she has a connection with James so is relevant in that way.

I have to do some other things now so will tackle that this afternoon/evening whilst watching the Olympics!

~~waves to Reverson~~

Welcome to the site!

It seems a bit rude to be interested in people who weren't my own ancestors, but Dr Reverson was a lovely man. Hope you have success in finding out about your ancestors. The sleuths here are second to none!

This is so kind of you. & so pleased that you are interested. Yes please leave the info up and place the typed up information on the sensitive facility.
You're probably right about Lucy, because the real interest would be why James remarried shortly before my Mum was born with Emily using the name Emily Reverson. Lucy's family might have some information which maybe I could pursue later. I have ordered their marriage certificate.
I also note my mum's name is the same as his first wife's.
Question: would James have had to sign the register of birth for my Mum? Or could Emily have registered it without James counter signing?

So pleased that you are interested, and that I've found people who can help. Exciting.
I see from the post on the 1901 census that William was James' nephew. It's good to hear that he was a lovely man. I'm hoping that this is a family trait which he shared with James!

If Emily registered the birth and lied abut being married to James (common for that to happen) then she would not need him to be with her at the register office. Proof of marriage would not be required.

Yes, we have Priscilla Swann remarrying earlier on this thread and then having Phyllis living with her in 1911.

Who is William who was an executor?

(sorry, I will get round to the other thread shortly! lol)

If you want to research your tree seriously, you will need a sub to one of the paying sites sooner or later, although there are a lot of free sites for certain things.

If you want to try them out, as the subs are quite expensive, you can get a 14-day trial subscription; they'll ask for your credit card details, but if you cancel the trial before the 14 days are up, they won't take any money from you.

Alternatively, if you're in the UK, your local library should be able to give you free access to Ancestry and/or FindmyPast.

There are various levels of subscription, depending on whether you want just UK or world records. I don't think either site has much for Russia/Poland, though.

Might be worth having a look at this site for Russian/Polish records, even if you don't know whether James was Jewish:
