I take it that Joseph is your line, or is it Jane and Thomas you are related to ?

".I want to find siblings of Joseph Harpham to trace Thomas and Janes parents."

Mike I think the Jane in the 1861 census is 1 not 7....she comes after Thomas and normally they go down in age?

I posted the two births above and I really think they could be the two who marry in 1886!

I can find Jane 1861 right through to 1911 if the married Jane is her..can't find Thomas in 1881

Lexie...IF Ellen was married to a Harpham why is she shown as a daughter and unmarried in 1861?

You will need to check the ER for the period.......either at the main library for the area, or the County Records Office

Just give the factual info about them..............don't muddy the waters by introducing speculation

Hello all Obtained marriage cert for Ellen Harpham and Charles marrison but dont seem to get any further forward.Ellen Harpham 27 Spinster father James Harpham Labourer Witnesses Annie Marrison and Henry Spencer married December 1870 .All parties living Worksop married Abbey Church.So that makes it sound tas if Ellen wasnt a Whiteley.Children on 1871 Census John H Emma and Ann given as step children of Charles Marrison so they must be children of Ellen and born out of Wedlock.Cant find Ellen and father James with mother Elizabeth only Ellen and Elizabeth in 1861.Cant find a death for a James Harpham either he must have died before 1861 as Elizabeth is a widow.Can any body help.Thank you

Lexie - you seem to be speculating and working down the tree. The ONLY way is to start with a hard and fast relative and work up the tree.

So...who have you/your sister-in-law STARTED with?

Lexie

Lexie Report 5 Oct 2012 19:02

The earlier posted marriage may be misleading... there are 2 other parties so maybe it was a double wedding rather than an inter-marriage !

Mike - but you can find a Thomas and Jane MAria together..I couldn't find Thomas with Louisa?

Could "Whiteley" be a middle name?

Anything's possible .. from half siblings or cousins marrying to a bigamy cover-up.

Strange that the tree has her father AND 1st husband as both being Harpham.

Another tree has mother Elizabeth as Harpham and NO father for Ellen.

I would be very interested to see who the father is named as on this certificate

Marriages Dec 1860

Harpham Joseph Worksop 7b 55 <<<<<<<<<
Kennewell John Worksop 7b 55
Marsh Fanny Worksop 7b 55
Mellars Elizabeth Worksop 7b 55
Pearson George Brown Worksop 7b 55
Pickering Helen Worksop 7b 55
Whiteley Ellen Worksop 7b 55 <<<<<<<<<<<<



that's if the pairing is correct !

As posted 21 September

Births Dec 1858 (>99%)
HARPHAM Thomas Harpham Baxter Worksop 7b 25

Births Mar 1860 (>99%)
HARPHAM Jane Maria Worksop 7b 26

Either one will show the parents

I think both would be interesting....and the marriage

Marriages Sep 1886 (>99%)
Harpham Jane Maria Brighton 2b 392
Harpham Thomas Brighton 2b 392

would be useful too...

they had three children .

Emigrated to S Africa before 1927 returned 1928 to 14 George St Worksop 1938 returned to Danesfield Rd to his sister Gladys Harpham.

The third child of Thomas and Jane was a Jack Harpham who married a M A Raley in 1933 Worksop - as far as i can tell no children.

Gladys Harpham never married and died Danesfield Rd.

What relationship did Thomas /Jane /Ellen have.
