In Reply to: SA marriage help please: Loud/Holman. by Stacey of 2435

Hi Stacey,

S.A BDM records are not on line- you could try some of the larger libraries that have genealogical data or join a Genealogical Society.

Found the following marriage record:



Groom: LOUD
Given names: Edward
Bride: MATTERS
Given names: Sarah
Date: 1862-05-01
Groom Age: 22
Status: S
Groom's Father: Edward LOUD
Bride Age: 18
Status: S
Bride's Father: William MATTERS
Place: St Stephen Church Willunga
District: Wil
Symbol:
Book/Page: 50/55
Cross Reference:

Birth of a brother

Surname: WATTERS
Given Names: William
Date: 1857-05-10
Sex: M
Father: William WATTERS
Mother: Mary HOLMAN
Birth Place/Residence: Willunga
District Code: Wil
Symbol: A
Book: 12
Page: 27
Cross Reference:

As you can see HOLMAN is the mother's maiden name and the family name was more likely to be WATTERS rather than MATTERS

This is most likely her birth:


Surname: WATERS
Given Names: Sally
Date: 1856-01-28
Sex: F
Father: William WATERS
Mother: Mary HOLMAN
Birth Place/Residence: Willunga
District Code: Wil
Symbol: M
Book: 5
Page: 347
Cross Reference:

Again the WATERS is most likely an error in the register and the surname most likely again to to WATTERS, she may well have adopted the name Sarah as opposed to her birth name of Sally.

I hope this is of some help
Good luck
Regards
Gordon
