On 24 March 1901 Alfred Harold Barnes FROST aged 19 married Ellen Eliza CHAPPELL aged 22 at St Mary Parish Church, Upton, Torquay. Alfred's father is shown on the marriage certificate as James FROST (Deceased) Sailor R.N. |
I have found the Baptism entry for Alfred, baptised at the Ker Street Weslyan Methodist Chapel, Devonport which shows his date of birth as 3 December 1881 and his parents as James and Mary Ann FROST of 13 James Street Ope, East Devonport.
On 9 June 1903 Sidney Harmon Albury FROST aged 21 married Nellie LOCK aged 22 at the Parish Church at Topsham, Exeter. Sidney's father is shown on the marriage certificate as James FROST Deceased.
I think that these two men were probably brothers in the same family.
I am having problems finding the parents of these two men. My sets of 1851 Devon and 1881 Census CDs don't work with my Windows 7.
Can some kind person please help me to find James FROST? I have tried to find a service record on the NA website for Royal Navy Seamen but I need his date of birth or approximate. I wonder if he had more Christian names but was known as James?
