Hello Albert,

I found the family on the 1901 Census of England:

Name:        Eliz M B West
Age:        14
Estimated birth year:        abt 1887
Relation:        Daughter
Father's name:        William S
Mother's name:        Elizabeth
Gender:        Female
Where born:        Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland, England
Civil parish:        Gateshead
Ecclesiastical parish:        Christchurch
County/Island:        Durham
Country:        England
Registration district:        Gateshead
Sub-registration district:        Gateshead
ED, institution, or vessel:        68
Household schedule number:        42

Household Members:        
Name        Age
Alice M B West        12
Elizabeth West        38
Eliz M B West        14
Margaret L B West        1
William S West        39

---You will notice that Elizabeth's father is called William??

I found a possible birth for Elizabeth BLACKETT, that matches the info given in the 1901 Census.

Name:        Elizabeth Blackett
Year of Registration:        1862
Quarter of Registration:        Jul-Aug-Sep
DISTRICT:        Newcastle Upon Tyne
County:        Northumberland
Volume:        10b
Page:        44

I found a possible birth for William/Thomas WEST, that matches the info given in the 1901 Census.

Name:        William Thomas West
Year of Registration:        1862
Quarter of Registration:        Jan-Feb-Mar
DISTRICT:        Newcastle Upon Tyne
County:        Northumberland
Volume:        10b
Page:        60

---This would explain the whole William/Thomas thing. Once again the middle names may have switched!

I found the marriage!

Name:        Elizabeth Blackett
Year of Registration:        1886
Quarter of Registration:        Jan-Feb-Mar
DISTRICT:        Newcastle Upon Tyne
County:        Northumberland
Volume:        10b
Page:        31

---A William Thomas WEST is listed as one of the possible grooms for this marriage.

Well...I'm exhausted. Enjoy!

Shannon
