Elizabeth Thompson McDowall--who did she marry?

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Anne Report 4 Feb 2011 18:11

I am a first time "poster" to this site. Looking for the husband of Elizabeth Thompson McDowall, who was born in 1885 in New Luce Wigtownshire, Scotland to Matthew McDowall and Mary Wilson
On in the England & Wales Marriage Index, I found an Elizabeth T McDowall, year of registration-1910, Jul-Sept quarter, district of Prestwich, County of Lancashire, Vol 8d, PAGE 61 (which says click to see others on page).
When I click, there are 5 people listed--four who married in Salford and Elizabeth, who married in Prestwich.
If you then view the "official" image, it states the same information except the page is PAGE 561.
I tried finding the marriage on this site as well but it kept coming up as either error or no person listed
Can anyone help me?

Marriages Sep 1910 (>99%)

CALDWELL Hugh Prestwich 8d 561
CALE Lydia Prestwich 8d 561
Fielding Alfred [E_] Prestwich 8d 561
Kissack John Prestwich 8d 561
Nelding Alfred E Prestwich 8d 561

I think that Hugh Caldwell married Lydia Cale

Fielding and Nelding are probably the same person

So that only leaves John Kissack but not found him with a wife called Elizabeth

Brilliant spot for 1911

Wow, that was quick. Thanks everyone. Now to see if they had any children!


Sandra Report 4 Jan 2013 23:31

I know this is many months after you posted this query, but I have just found it when I googled the address in Lymm from the 1911 census where Elizabeth and Alfred Fielding were listed. I often like to see what the area or houses are like, so use the Google street view.

I too am researching the same McDowall family and have just assumed that this is Matthew's daughter Elizabeth Thomson McDowall who married Alfred Fielding - purely a hunch because of the middle initial and that it was in the Cheetham area of Manchester where other family events seemed to have taken place. I can find no children born to them so far. I think she died in 1961 June quarter aged 75 at Manchester - FreeBMD ref. 10e; 410. There is a death of an Alfred E Fielding in Salford in March quarter 1950 aged 68 - BMD ref: 10f; 614 - both seem to fit their ages. There is a birth of an Alfred E Fielding in June quarter 1881 in Prestwich which I assume to be him.

If you have any other information or proof, I would be interested in sharing the rest of what I have on this branch of the McDowalls.

Hi Sandra, welcome to the boards.

As it' s a couple of years since Anne posted it might be worth clicking on her name to message her in case she isn't checking for replies.
