Frederick Skinner Carne was born in around 1876 in St Columb, Cornwall his father’s name was Samuel Skinner Carne, Mother’s name unknown.
In the 1891
(16) is living at Paul, Tresvenack, Cornwall.
1901 census see ‘true or false’ below
In the 1911
(35) is living at 26 Wern Crescent, Nelson, Glamorganshire. His relationship to
the head of the household, John Haskell is down as a boarder.
Frederick Skinner Carne (37) married
Weech (24) on the 29th July 1912
at the Register Office in the District of Bedwellty, Monmouthshire.
Frederick’s surname was spelt incorrectly on the wedding certificate, spelt Cairn instead of Carne. This also meant it was wrongly spelt in the Civil Registration Marriage Index for England and Wales.

1. Elsie Maud…….born on the 15th of August 1912 at 12 Pochin Crescent, Tredegar. Frederick’s occupation is down as Stone Dresser.

Taken from the England & Wales, National Probate Calendar (Index of Wills and Administrations), 1858-1966
Sarah died in 1940 aged 52 (Bedwellty Mar. 11a 238).

‘True or False’
I did find a Frederick Carne (using his age of on his marriage certificate) three times on the census’ between 1881 – 1911, and while I believe the 1891 and 1911 census in which he appears in is the Frederick Carne who marries Sarah A Weech in 1912 I can’t be 100% that the Frederick Carne in the 1901 census is the same person. The reason for this is that if it is the same Frederick Carne, then when he married Sarah Weech it is possible that he was already married!
In the 1901
Census the Frederick Carne I came
across is married to Wilmot Ellen
(25) and is living with mother in-law at 6 St Michael’s Street. Penzance,
Cornwall. They have a daughter Wilhelmina
In the 1911 census Wilmot Ellen (35) and her daughter, Wilhelmina Freda Mary (10) are still living with her parents, Joseph Martyns (67) and Mary Jane (67) at 37 Catherine Street, Devonport, Devon. Also living with them is Wilmot’s sister Elizabeth Jane (45) and 10 lodgers, all sailors. Wilmot is down as married but Frederick’s name is not recorded.
Had Frederick gone to find work elsewhere? Had they separated? Was the reason Frederick’s surname was written down differently on the marriage certificate was because he was already married? All was there just 2 Frederick Carne’s born in St Columb at around the same time?
