Hi, i wondered if anybody with more experience than me could help me, i am at Robert Woods, estimated birth year 1806. Birth place, Norfolk, England. He married Charlotte Thompler (Although not found a marriage record for this wife) and he also married Susannah Rope in 1841.

I am really struggling to get any further with my tree, I have looked on family search aswel and can not find any birth record for him so i can not find any parents names for him. Any advice would be much appreciated.

You are fortunate that Robert married twice, as the second marriage is after the beginning of civil registration so the marriage certificate will show the names and occupations of the fathers of both parties. Order it direct from www.gro.gov.uk using the reference below (from FreeBMD)


Marriages Dec 1841
ROPE Susannah Loddon 13 501
WOODS Robert Loddon 13 501

Hi

I was wondering where you found out the name of his first wife.

I found a Robert WOODS marrying a Charlotte THOMPSON at St Marys Church, Norton Subcourse, Norfolk on 15 Dec 1829.

I found numerous Robert WOODS brn around 1806 the closest I found was one bpt 4 Aug 1805 at Ditchingham, Norfolk.

Ditchingham and Norton are abt 10 miles apart.

This may not be the correct person but possibly worth checking out.

Hi, Thank you for the reply. I do not no for sure that he married charlotte Thompler. I was following his census records and they say, in 1841 he was living with his daughter charlotte woods age 11, 1851, children, charlotte aged 20, henrietta aged 8, John aged 6, james aged 4.I have James birth certificate and that says his mothers name was Susannah Rope. I found susan Rope living next door to Robert woods in 1841 but she would have been to young to of been Charlotte mother, So i looked on family search website for baptism records and i found a Charlotte woods, father Robert woods and mother Charlotte Thompler, then for all of the other children it said Robert woods and mother Susannah Rope. I hope i am write with him marrying twice.

I can not find any records of ancestry for Charlotte Thompler,

Hi

I found the death registration for a Charlotte WOODS Dec 1840, Loddon, Norfolk.

Loddon is abt 4 miles from Norton.

Bearing in mind that Robert married his second wife in Loddon, you could be right that he had married twice and that it was Charlotte THOMPSON and not THOMPLER as transcribed on Family Search.
