You should be able to find both with parents and siblings in the 1851 census. If you would like some help, can you tell us where they were born?

Reggie Report 27 Nov 2012 10:04

In which country?

As the names are common, the more info you give, the better your chances of a result

When and where did they marry?

Reggie

Reggie Report 27 Nov 2012 10:10

Well, it isn't England/Wales..............

Probably Scotland...........unless it isn't anywhere in the UK

A good place to start is;

Rootsireland.ie


They have marriages, baptisms and deaths.

It's pay per view, however I can see their marriage on there and a possible birth for John with father James. (these are doing a free search, and without seeing all details I can't be sure)

If you have their marriage certificate who were the witnesses??
