Lily Gertrude Pheobe Woodlands Female

Born: 1900

Comments: According to the transcription of the certificate of her marriage to Vernon, Lily was 20 at the time she married. This puts her date of birth around 1920. Her place of birth is recorded on the marriage certificate as Guernsey.

Sure enough, a 1 year old Lily Woodland (note the lack of an 's' on the end) does appear in the 1901 census, living in St. Peter Port, Guernsey, place of birth recorded as Guernsey, St. Martin.

Spouse: Vernon Michael Cecil Hawkins (Married 28-Feb-1920)
Children: Muriel Dorothy Hawkins, Vernon George Hawkins, Kathleen Joan Hawkins, Barbara Hawkins, Terence Hawkins
I have a transcription of the couple marriage certificate which gives a fair bit of information about the marriage, including names of the parents.

Perhaps most interesting is the fact that Lily was in fact born on Guernsey. It seems likely this may have been a contributing factor to the couple having met.

Witnesses for the marriage are entered as George Henry Woodlands and Kathleen Woodlands. A note is entered that George was not actually present and gave his consent by letter. Kathleen seems likely to be Lily's sister.
