I am trying to obtain information on the following man, who was alledged to have been born 25 June, 1920; parents were alledgedly Joseph Henry Marriott and Martha Myra Marriott formerly Coulson. Although, he listed his father as Captain Ronald Marriott, Royal Navy.

'Les' as he was known, was alledgedly born in Soothill, Dewsbury, Yorkshire. But, I have been advised he had a brother and sister, and they were all in a childrens home in Stamford, before being fostered in Grantham?

He later joined the army, and married Florence Ivy Marriott; they had a daughter, Valerie.

His true origins are shrouded in mystery, it is possible he could be an illigimate child? We believe he had a monied paternal family, whom he used to have limited contact; during the war he bought his bride to be a platinum diamond wedding ring, which would have been way beyond the means of an army sargeant.

Please get in touch if you can shed anylight on this mystery?
