I am helping someone do their Family Tree and have a problem finding information on a Dorothy Saul.

I have a Dorothy Lewis b.1913/1914 died Birkenhead 2002. Her parents - William D Lewis and Dorothy Saul. I have got the marriage cert for William Lewis and Dorothy Saul. I can trace back on William David Lewis but I am hitting a brick wall trying to find the family of Dorothy Saul.
The marriage was 6 May 1912 at Our Lady and St Joseph's Church Seacombe Birkenhead.
Dorothy Saul is 20 a Spinster - general domestic servant - living at 140 Wheatland Lane Seacombe. Her father is Patrick Saul (deceased) no profession listed. Witnesses William Frederick Harding and Margaret Dean. The marriage was Roman Catholic.
If anyone can help find her family I would really appreciate the help.
Thank you. Norma

In 1911 she is a servant and said to be born in Liverpool.

Possibly this birth.....

Births Dec 1891

Saul Dorothy Langley in W. Derby 8b 464

Just missed the 1891 census,that's a shame.I wonder if the Langley middle name is a clue to her real dad?

I think Patrick Saul was a widower when he married Sarah. There is a Patrick ,widower, with 3 children in 1881 .
1871 has a Patrick 'Soul' with wife Mary A,2 sons and a daughter Mary ,8 months old. Patrick,Mary A and 2 sons born Ireland,Daughter born Liverpool.

Maybe one of these children was the parent of Dorothy.Maybe she gave her grandfathers name at her wedding!

Thank you so much Pamela.

I will look at all of this. It does get complicated when children are with grandparents as to who belongs to who - but it all adds to the fun of unravelling the mystery.

Thanks again for your time.

Best bet would be to buy the birth cert.
