I hope Sheena comes back to read her replies.

Guernsey marriage records show the names of the parents of the Bride & Groom. Researching these may give an indication of where Marie might have gone to have her child and therefore where her child may have been baptised.

The records are all at the Priaulx Library and are the tapes are very readable and the staff helpful. I am surprised that no evidence has been found.

Maybe Sheena could arrange a short holiday in Guernsey and do some research herself. It is also very possible that she will find the houses the family lived in still standing.
