The William Dodd I am trying to trace was born in Dorking Surrey in 1851 he died in Patricroft Lancashire in February 1911. I am unable to find his actual birth date or mariage dates. I think he was married twice-he was certainly married around 1891/2 to Ellen Jane Colebaugh-I am unable to find any information about Ellen except her mothers name which was Helen. William and Ellen had 5 children one of whom was my husband's grandfather Fred. Another mystery is why all the children girls and boys were given the name Hardman as a middle name.
I would be very grateful for any information to help in my search I really need to find William's parents names.
Thankyou in anticipation
