    born c 1835 in Morden, Dorset (son of John)

    At some stage between 1851 and 1861 he marries an Amelia (c1835 St Helier), they can be found in 1861 in Poplar RG 9: 305: 33: 20

    I think I have a death for her later in 1861 in Hackney RD

    David remarried in 1866

    Since I cannot find a marriage I wondered if it was in the Channel Islands, and is it possible to find it?

    No worries, if not, it is far from being a priority -- it just seems to be bugging me way beyond its importance ...

    Try 'theislandwiki' - 'Jerripedia' are now putting some PR's online - you might be lucky

    Shame:( - I know the Channel Islands are not the easiest, unless you can get over there to the record office. I have never been lucky with the online records, but they are adding to them, so one day perhaps?:rolleyes:

    There is a Marriage on FreeMD for David William Bason to either
    HOWARD Louisa Shoreditch 1c-475 or METCALFE Mary A. Shoreditch 1c-475. Familysearch seems to favour Louisa
    check 1891 census RG12/ 169/26/47

    1881 RG11; Piece: 233; Folio: 14; Page: 22
    16 Denmark St. Islington.

    Sorry Lass, I read your post upside out!

    Just thought, have you tried for newspapers from the Islands? Brit Library seems to have some. Sorry time short ,can't check them.

    hmmm, tried a couple of searches and got nothing, according to Jerripedia copies of the Star are supposed to be in the British Newspaper Archive but I couldn't find it :(

    Found entries from The Star but it seems to be just for Guernsey.

    I could have sworn I have seen a Jersey newspaper on the BNA site - but I am obviously dreaming :( Like Eve, I have found The Star from Guernsey and looking at the 'hits' there are a couple of mentions of the name Bason in the 'Arrivals' column - one from 1873 and one from 1885. Both give just the surname (really useful) and the one from 1873 says "Bason and party". Both times the Basons arrived from Jersey......but that is really no help at all :rolleyes:

    Thanks Ann :)
    never mind, as I said it is not a priority, and since I've posted the question I have ceased to fret about it so much. Why I care I don't know, anyone else wouldn't have these people in their tree, the connections are so tortuous I can't begin to explain them ...
