Note on Marriage

I am guessing that the marriage of William in 1908 in Whitehaven is for this William. The Marraige register does not give name of spouse.

Note on Husband: William John HUNTRISS

It is conjecture at this stage that William Huntriss is the son

However the reference in Simon Giles Website is to Bill Huntriss, and this is certainly the name used by his daugther in law, Ellen Huntriss when I spoke to her in Jan 2002

The dates also seem to fit.

1901 census - Willian Huntress at Cumberland County Industrial School (with 160 others)
