Ball - Marriage Certificate

Ball - Marriage Certificate

Surnames: Ball Higgins

I am trying to find the names of Ernest William Ball's parents.

In the 1911 census, he is 38 years old born in London nd married to a Kate.

I have found a record for banns for the couple, Kate being Katherine Elizabeth Higgins, however this doesn't have the names of either set of parents.

Does anyone know whether this record (link listed below) will contain their parents names, assuming it was purchased?

I cannot find the couple in the free BMD lists.

If anyone has any hints or tips to try and find Ernest's parents, I would greatly appreciate it.

Edited: 1352104055000 has Sep 1871,Camberwell,1D 641,another in Surrey in 1870.
Searching for 1911 census brought up several other entries worth a look.
Checked your link but i don't have Canadian access,but guessing it wont have much to do with London.Do you have a place and date for banns?

Have you looked at 1881 census?Birth certificate can then confirm his parents.

It is interesting that there is a record of the Banns, but no marriage!!!

I've just found someone on Ancestry who has them in their tree.

married 1867 Newington, London
Siblings for Ernest William are:

Edgar 1875 Newington

Kate Elizabeth is bSep 1873 in Islington, London
Her parents:
Alfred Higgins b 1845 in Husborn Crawley, Bedfordshire
Catharina Crossman b 1843 in Bishopsgate, Middlesex

William Ernest Ball's parents are listed as:
William Ball 1814 Middlesex
Maria 1820 Northampton

Eliza Susan William's parents are listed as:

I could keep going, but if you want to be put in contact with the person who has this family on Ancestry, email me direct on:
I'll ask them to contact you. No guarantee that they will.

I hope this helps,
