Hello Mary,

Not sure what the death certificate will say - probably one of the Baker family registered the death.

I've looked for a marriage, but have not found anything.

Off to bed now. Will look in again tomorrow.

A cousin of mine is called Nancy but was registered as Hannah.

There is a marriage of an Abraham Carter in 4th q of 1866 in Dudley (the registration district for Sedgley).

One of the brides is Hannah Connah (the other is Jane Bagley)
vol and pg are 6c/144.

Mary, you may not have noticed my previous message.

I think that the marriage of Abraham Carter in Dudley 4/1866 6c/144
is the one you are looking for.

I hope that you get good info from Ann's death cert.

have you got a copy of the actual will. It may give some clue other than what is on the probate record

MarysRoots Report 3 Dec 2012 21:16

Hello,

The only will info I have is what choccy found, but on the 1881 Census Abraham and Nancy where living with James Baker and his family

It could be worthwhile applying for a copy of the will. John Baker was named as 'one of the executors'. Who was the other. Who else was named in the will?

The copy would tell you this and if you are lucky would give some ideas of family relationships. Sometimes they are disappointing but at others they contain a wealth of useful information.

I have one will which names all the people, including a brother, who lived in his small area.

I cannot find a marriage for Abraham and Nancy/Ann I 'm wondering if maybe they where not married although on census and death cert it says wife,
Abraham was single on 1851 census age 30 I still cannot find him on the 1861 but could it be that Nancy was married before as she was 10 years older than Abraham I know it's no help as I have no maiden name for her but just a thought

Mary :-)

I thought that I had posted earlier today, apologising for letting my excitement in "finding the marriage" get in the way of checking out the facts before I posted.

Sorry to be misleading, as you say, Abraham married Jane in Dudley.



Since my previous (lost) post I have looked on A---ry to see if anyone has got Abraham and Hannah on a tree there.

Well, someone has got an Abraham born c1823 married to a Hannah Haslett.

Again I thought ... "this could be them!" However, there are many differences,

Their Abraham was not born in Staffs, but was living there (not not in Sedgley) in 1861 Census with his wife Hannah. He was a Cordwainer. The couple had children.

This Hannah was about the same age as Abraham, not ten years older!
These two rather major differences seem to make it obvious that it is a different couple.

HOWEVER, the woman who has them in her tree has called it the BAKER tree!

She does not have a record of the couple in 1871 or 1881 Census, but seems to think that they moved to Australia.

Abraham Carter married Hannah Haslett in 1844.

PS Now I'm hoping that the name of her tree was Baker, not BARKER.

I think that I need to get some sleep.

Sorry if I have confused anyone. :-(

Hello,

My Abraham was born and died in Sedgley so must be a different family but odd if they also have Bakers will have to take a look

getting a copy of a will is quite easy but be prepared to wait a while for it.

Jonesey has kindly put a whole thread on how to do it. This is the link
