Alice HEAD and John HUNT, Chepstow (General)

Thanks for that Mike !

Interesting John was "in fact" born in 1881. ???

Seeing as Alice's father was a baker, and John was a waggoner, quite possibly working for his father who was a miller, it seems reasonable to think the couple met as a result of their parent's work.

Despite several searches struggling to definitely find John, or Edwin, in the earlier Censuses, locally or elsewhere.
???

However searching Lilian Hunt, witness at his wedding, I eventually find this record which seems relevant, our John's daughter ? (presumably from his previous marriage).

So Lillian was born abt 1907.

GlosBMD has;
Birth Details

HUNT Lilian Beatrice MOORE 1906 Forest of Dean Monmouth, Coleford 62 366


FamilySearch gives;

1911 Newland, Coleford, Monmouthshire, England UK
Household Role Sex Age Birthplace
John Hunt Head M 29 Flour miller. Filkins Oxford, Oxfordshire
Jane Hunt Wife F 34 Redbrook, Gloucestershire
Lillian Hunt Daughter F 5 school. Redbrook, Gloucestershire

May Moore Ste Daughter F 15 Redbrook, Gloucestershire

Which helpfully confirms the GlosBMD record which showed Jane Hunt nee Davies was previously married to a Moore.

Despite age discrepancy this looks relevant;
