    • GRO ref: Carter, Gladys q3 1920 mother's maiden name: Gootham, Strood RD 2a 1446
      Actual date from 1939 register and death registration index.

      Gladys was born after her mother's first husband, William Carter, had filed for divorce. From the divorce papers and from the fact that William was adamant that Gladys' older sister Florence was not his daughter I think there was no relationship between Annie and William after he came back from the war. The birth cert. might give a clue as to whether Gladys was the daughter of Annie's second husband, though a marriage sooner after the divorce might have been expected if she were.
      When she married, Gladys named her father as the deceased William Carter, again suggesting she was not the daughter of George Down. Gladys claimed William was a deceased fireman. The name is that of her mother's first husband, but he was alive at the time of the 1939 register, with no sign of his death between then and Gladys' marriage, and he was a plumber, not a fireman, in documents I have seen. If William was her father she may have pretended he had died to avoid the need for his permission to marry, as she was still a minor.
