why would a woman use a different last name on the Catholic Baptismal Records
Fathers name was Frederic Moon and the mother's name on 8 children in the Catholic parish baptisms was Mary Louise Norton. In the GRO the mothers name is recorded as Mary Louise de Bruyne. It was de Bruyne in the marriage record as well. The mother is from Belgium. have ordered the original marriage certificate to see if I can shed any light on this.
Any one have any idea why the mother would use a different last name on the Catholic registers.
