Rainbow / Coombes

Rainbow / Coombes

Classification: Query
Surnames: Rainbow, Coombes, Prince, Norris, Wheeler, Dunn-Simms
Looking for details of a marraige between Alice Ann RAINBOW (known as Annie) b @ 1892 in Gloucestershire, UK and Walter Edward COOMBES b @ 1893 in Gloucestershire, UK. Their children were
Margaret (b 1914) Doreen Joan (b 1924) Dorothy (b 1928) Donald, Douglas, Dennis and Michael, all born in Gloucestershire.
I need the marriage certificate to get the dates of birth and fathers names of Alice and Walter, so I can confirm I have the right people before I can carry on with my research. I have been unable to find any reference to a marriage between them, but know they were married before Margaret was born in 1914. Any help would be appreciated.

Margaret Ivy Coombes was my maternal Grandmother. Her parents, Walter Coombes & Alice Rainbow, were married in 1917. Details for a copy of marriage certificate: 1st quarter (march) District of Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, Vol 3a, Page 1681. I hope this helps you.

All the best

Hi Lyndy,

Thank you for your message. I now have all the details of Walter and Alice, as well as their children, with the exception of Margaret! I was unable to find her birth details in the BMD and would be most grateful if you could give me any information on her. I have a photo of her taken in the 60's I think, and one of her children about the same time. I know their names but nothing else about them.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Kirsty
