This is a summary of her Marriage
Certificate (it was difficult to read and will be revised at a later date):
Rebecca Burgar, 34, Spinster, of 64 Thornton ? St, and Henry James Harwood, 36, Ganger, of 64 Thornton St, were married by Banns on the 25th December 1908 at St Stephens. Both signed.
Her father was William James Burgar, ? foreman. his father was William Richard? Harwood, deceased, Painter.
The witnesses were William Albert Kann? and Catherine Maud Rice. Both signed.
|There seems to be some confusion with respect
to the name of her father. He is here named as William James Burgar, whereas
he was really Walter Burgar (and Rachel Netto as on her Birth certificate).
He was a butcher for most of his life but in later years prior to his death
he was a 'scavenger' in the 1891 Census, and is recorded as a labourer when
his daughter Emily Harriet married in 1901. .
It seems surprising that a 34 year old does not know the name of her father when he only died 5 years earlier. There is no mention that he was deceased. Very Strange. She died on 11 Mar 1937 at 103 Rosemary Road, Peckham..90

the family to be the result of being scratched by a cat).
