The Gallop twins

Postby SRD » Mon Apr 03, 2017 11:08 am

I have a Florence Violet Rose Gallop b 23 Jul 1903 Wroxhall, Isle of Wight to George H Gallop & Esther Elizabeth Wynn.
I have the 1911 Census, the 1939 Register and the Marriage Index showing that she was married to an Arthur George Dore (Doro) in 1928, Isle of Wight. I have her death as 1972

Her twin sister, Ruth Stella Lillian married Ronald A Dore (Doro) the same year. I have her death as 1984.

The 1939 Register shows Florence's husband Arthur as being born 16 Nov 1900, he may be:
Births Dec 1901 (>99%)
DORE Arthur George I. Wight 2b 617
Census 1911
Harry Dore Head 47 Married Jobbing Gardener Jobbing Northwood
Fanny Dore Wife 46 Married Shorwell
Married: 19 years
Children born: 5
Children alive: 4
Children dead: 1
Robert Dore Son 15 Single Errand Boy St Lawrence
George Dore Son 9 School St Lawrence
Jack Dore Son 4 Ventnor
Schedule No: 83
Postal Address: 13 Steephill Down Terrace, Upper Ventnor, Isle Of Wight
Registration District: 93 (Isle of Wight)
Registration Sub-District: 5 (Godshill)
ED: 1
Civil Parish: Ventnor
Ecclesiastical Parish: Ventnor St Catherines & Godshill All Saints
Urban District: Ventnor
Deaths Mar 1964 (>99%)
DORE ARTHUR G 62 I.Wight 6b 926
But the age on those records doesn't match the 1939 Register.
The Arthur G Dore b. 1898 to Harry & Eliza doesn't fit.

The 1939 Register shows Ruth's husband as being Ronald A Dore b.1897, he may be:
Births Dec 1896 (>99%)
Dore Albert Ronald I. Wight 2b 604
Census 1901
Arthur Dore Head M 44 Coachman Aylesbury, Bucks
Frances Dore Wife M 34 Bullen I.o.W.
Arthur F Dore Son 8 Carisbrook I.o.W.
Alice M Dore Daur 6 Newport I.o.W.
Albert R Dore Son 4 Newport I.o.W.
Florence I Dore Daur 3 Newport I.o.W.
William C Dore Son 1 Newport I.o.W.
Dorothy R Payne Stepdaur 10 Newport I.o.W.
Folio: 71
Administrative County: Isle of Wight

Civil Parish: Newport
Ecclesiastical Parish: Carisbrooke
Municipal Borough: Newport
Ward: North Ward
Town: Newport
Schedule No: 5
Address: 17 Lukely Place
Registration District: Isle of Wight
Registration Sub-district: Newport
ED: 5
Deaths Dec 1970 (>99%)
DORE Ronald Albert 8No1896 I.Wight 6b 2351

There are three children that may apply to either couple:
Births Dec 1929 (>99%)
DORE Leonard A Gallop I Wight 2b 832
Births Dec 1929 (>99%)
DORE Mary R Gallop I Wight 2b 849
Births Mar 1940 (>99%)
DORE Elizabeth A Gallop I. Wight 2b 1639
Leonard & Mary may be twins but the entry numbers not being consecutive suggest that not to be the case.

The 1939 Register shows one closed record in the household of Florence & Arthur which is, presumably, Leonard or Mary. Leonard died in 2009 so it is less likely to be him but I can find no further info about Mary to confirm that she is the closed record.

Please can anyone find any further info about any of them, or suggest alternatives to the Arthur & Ronald I've found.

Currently investigating the Hillmans of Sussex.
