- Mrs. Monica Baker, Billericay, Essex

I have a problem in my family that needs to be solved. When I obtained the birth certificate of my great grandfather George HOPKINS it said his mother was Charlotte Ann LOVEGROVE. With this 1 tried to find a marriage but could not match up the two surnames. Eventually I obtained the birth certificate of one of George's siblings only to find that the mother was Charlotte Ann WAIT. This combination of names led me to find the marriage in 1842 at Boxford of John HOPKINS and Charlotte Arm WAIT. As two of John and Charlotte's sons have the middle name of Lovegrove, I think that somehow Charlotte gave her mother's maiden name by mistake. Her mother, according to the 1881 census is Ann Maria WAIT, aged 82, born in Thatcham. So far I have not been able to locate any records that confirm this WAIT/LOVEGROVE family.
