1 Jenny Verth miscellaneous information.
Jenny Verth 2006-11-14 re Banks family.
Argument towards proving William John Banks (Workington 1881) was William John Banks (son of John Banks & Eliza Ann Hewitt).
(1) Isaac Banks, who married Helen Barr in 1910, was the same age as Isaac Banks, son of William John Banks & Ann Crossy, in Workington 1881.
(2) Isaac's marriage shows his father's occupation as steelsmelter (same as 1881).
(3) His mother is shown as Ann Banks m/s Crosser,deceased.
(4) A witness was Hugh Banks. John William Banks' first child by his 2nd wife was called Hugh.
(5) Isaac was married from 29 Slatefield Street,Glasgow, where Elizabeth Hewitt Banks Wilson had died in 1909 (presumably the home of her son, William John Banks and his second wife, Catherine McClymont).
