Marriage for James Vallance from the family of Philip and Elizabeth in census 1851.

Again his father is listed as a schoolmaster, rather than an instrument maker.

As Reggie asked, how do you know Charles' father was an instrument maker?

Name: James Vallance
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1846
Age: 21
Spouse Name: Alice Seymour

Father Name: Philip Vallance
Spouse Father Name: Thomas Seymour
Register Type: Parish Register

One witness was Elizabeth Sarah Banks - could that be the married name of his sister Elizabeth Sarah Vallance aged 10 in 1851?

Yes it was, and again, father Philip described as schoolmaster:

Thanks for the info, I also thought he might be related to the Vallance Joseph and Adrew but can find no really evidence.

So, who is the father? Or have I missed something!

Is this your tree at Ancestry?

So, as I said earlier, I would think that this 'this' is Charles

If you missed it Gins, I missed it too!

Plus the evidence for his occupation also being musical instrument maker...

Opening post seems to have been edited/updated with father's name?

If I'd known it was also Charles, would have saved me going down the 'wrong' line. :-(

Thanks K, not just me then!!


Jean, if you cant find a birth or Charles with his parents on the censuses, how do you know his fathers name and occupation?

Gins

Gins Report 31 Dec 2012 17:22

Jean, its best to post on here, rather than send PMs, that way everyone can see the info and help

PM

Thanks for the reply, problem with Jabez being Charles-his father was a school master and not an instrument maker. On Charles marriage certt. the father is down as Charles Vallance musical instrument maker.

Can you post all the details from the marriage certificate, address, witnesses etc
