Note on Husband: William W DAVIES

NOTES: Surname taken from marriage index showing a Helen Axtell marrying in 1914. Though no birth year for Helen, St Albans is the location of registration for Redbourn. Unfortunately no one else is listed on the same page, and looking for any Davies marrying in Q2 of 1914 in Hertfordshire does not find any matches - possibly due to the fact that the database is not fully populated.

The following males where born in the St Albans district around 1880-1893...

Bertram Stewart Davies Q1 1886

Harry Davies Q4 1885

John Davies Q2 1885

John Charles Davies Q2 1894

Note on Wife: Helen AXTELL

NOTES: A Nellie (b1886) is recorded in the 1891 census. An Ellen (b1888) in the 1901 census. Their birth years are either side of 1887, allowing for the corruption of Helen into Nellie and Ellen and the birth year to be approximate, a record showing a Helen Axtell born in Jul-Aug-Sep 1887 in St Albans, Hertfordshire sounds like a pretty good match.
