I am having trouble working out the Mother's maiden name on this birth certificate. Her married name is Annie Mumby.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

It looks like 'Portus' to me.

That was what I thought, but I'm struggling to find a match with an Annie Portas with other records.

Fred had a sister, so I have ordered her birth certificate as well. Hopefully that will shed more light.

This birth certificate was issued in Lincolnshire. If you look for Annie Portus b. 1885 the name appears as Portas, there are only 58 Portus, Portas, Porteous and only a couple of Annie, so one of the Lincolnshire entries could be her. Might be worth approaching from that direction and seeing if that gives any clues. Just a suggestion.
