Thanks on list to a kind lister, Anne, who searched for and was unable
to find the marriage of Ernest William SAWDON and Margaret FOX, between
July 1910 and June 1911. According to Rootsweb WorldConnect the record
states that the marriage took place on August 30, 1910, but does not
As they were Quakers, is it possible that they were married in a private
religious ceremony that was not publicly registered? Though Margaret
was apparently listed in London, St. Pancras, in the 1901 census, which
may be near where she was married, they could also conceivably been
married in a foreign country. Ernest and Margaret are also reported to
have written a book "Stories of Friends beyond the Seas" published in
London in 1916. They were later missionaries to China returning in the
early days of WW II.
Does anyone have any insights that might help unravel this mystery?
