I am trying to find my Great Granddad’s parents to further my family tree, my Great Grandad being Arthur Jefferson Montague born 5th November 1868 in St. George, Bermuda. Arthur married Fanny Frances King 21st October 1889 in Portsea Island near Portsmouth, England. Fanny was born 1872 in Portsea, England from the marriage certificate I know his Dad was Alfred with no occupation at that time but that’s all I know.
I have traced the family tree from Arthur down to me but cannot get back any further. I tried to get a copy of Arthur’s birth certificate but the Bermudian Registry office have no record of it.
I am on several geanology websites asking for help but have not found a connection yet and have also tried to contact St. Peter’s church in case they have any records of birth or Christenings but as of yet have not had a reply.
Can you advise any suggestions?

My husband is writing his father’s life story.
His father, Clive William Thornton Henderson was employed as a Pilot on Bermuda in the 1930s. Clive married Isabella Clacher (from Australia) at the Presbyterian Church in Hamilton on Dec 12, 1934 and their daughter Morna Joan, was born in Hamilton on 12 May 1936. They lived there for at least another year because he was the navigator on the ferry, South Steyne when it came out from Scotland to Sydney in July 1938.
Any information on Clive and Isabella whilst they were in Bermuda would be recieved with much delight.
