Bevington - 1932 Back of High St, Bordesley


Hello, looking for Macquaker - Alice and Ellen, who gave their address at their marriages in 1932 as 7/143 High St - showing as being occupied by the Bevington family.
Does anyone have any connections to Bevington that might be able to throw some light here please?!


master brummie
Not sure if this is helpful or not but on Ellen's marriage record at St John Deritend it is Henry at 7/143 and Ellen is at 3/143. I imagine Henry might have lodged there.

In the 1930 electoral rolls , no 3 court 29 (which must be same as back 143) was occupied by Clarence Charles, Emily Elizabeth . and Clarence Henry Lorton, In 1935 it was
Clarence Charles, Frank Leonard, Clarence Henry & Alice Lorton


Hello everyone - firstly thanks for all your efforts on this!!
OK - Known facts:
Alice Macquaker married Frank Leonard Lorton in Feb 1932, so she is NOT the Alice Lorton in 1930 electoral roll.
Alice stated she was living at 7/143, and frank at 3/143. So Mike's info confirms.
Ellen (who I still do not know what her Relationship is to Alice) was living with Alice and Frank when she got married in Sept 1932 - so logic, a Macquaker with another Macquacker - but then her 'husband to be' was once again at 7/143...... it's driving me mad!!


Sorry, just realised I've done an oopsy!
Alice was of course on the 1935 electoral roll - hadn't read properly - Sorry Mike!
