My Great grandfather is John Hough, his father is William Alexander Hough and his mother could be Tabitha Biddle - still needs verification.
I have a copy of John Hough's marriage certificate which confirms his fathers name and records his occupation as a clockmaker (journeyman). It also records Lily Beatrice Hough (John's sister?)as one of the witnesses.
The marriage took place in Croydon, Surrey in October 1905 and John is recorded as 23 years old and his occupation listed as a Private in the East Surrey Regiment.
I have located a John Alexander Hough born in Croydon in Jun 1882 and a Lily Beatrice Hough born in Croydon in 1889, but I haven't obtained a birth certificate yet.
Do you have any more information that may help to confirm whether we are looking at the same Hough family?
