Hi Susan
Bit of a mystery on Fredericks marriage.
1917 marriage has Frederick to Norah Knight. Thought it was mistranscribed but checked the original image and it was right.
Can't find any children born Rollings with mothers maiden name Knight but can find 4 children born Rollings with mothers maiden name Carr.

Thanks but I keep in touch with the children from her first marriage and my mum is from her marriage to Frederick.  I would love to try and find his parents.
Thanks Susan

Frederick is son of George Rollings born c1850 Eaton Bray and Jane Horn born c1855 Northall.
1911 census says Frederick was one of eleven Children.

Dates should be George c1860 and Jane c1865.

Mark who was one of Fredericks brothers was killed in France in 1917.
There is a small biography on our Serving Soldiers page.

Looking at records we may be able to trace Fredericks line back to the 1750s in Eaton Bray.
