The main problem I was stuck with what happened tomy mother after she married mr s t thurgar in 1937 as he remarried in 1947 .
Expert:  A. Schuyler replied 6 years ago.

I can see that you have a problem. I have spent hours looking for a death or divorce registration for her under Thurgur/Thurgar, Batchelor (various spellings) and even Hutchins/Hudgins. I found absolutely nothing.


Did you have siblings? What was your father's name?

I was born in march1928 before my mother married for ther first time she married my suposed birth father in sept 1928 He was aj reynolds then she left him as he was a drunk and I think assulted her no record of a divorse but letters I have indicate she left him. NEXT i FIND SHE MARRIED S T thurgur in 1937 then no sign of death or divorse but I find S T Thugur marries again in 1947 I have no siblings tha I know of My mother would not have had Batchelor as her name as that is my adopted name and I was adopted before she married A J NReynolds in as You can see the waters R a biut muddied.

Thanks for the additional information. I found a marriage for Mary A. Thurgur (Hutchins)to Alfred H. C. Phillips in the Jul-Aug-Sep quarter of 1946 in Westminster, Middlesex. If you want to order a copy, you will need to know that it is volume number 5c, page 1139.
