Could I ask if some one can look and see if they can come up with any please

Does not mean they had any children especially as it was about the time of WW1

Sylann, according to the marriage record his name was spelled CornwEll

Surname First name(s) Spouse District Vol Page
Marriages Dec 1914
Cornwell John Richardson Prestwich 8d 570
RICHARDSON Isabella Cornwell Prestwich 8d 570

Try looking for births with that spelling.

I don't mind looking at shipping records but you need to give more to work from.

Do you at least know where and when Isabella was born?

Does not mean it is the right Isabella Richardson that married in 1914

Using http://www.lancashirebmd.org.uk/
Lancashire Marriage indexes for the years: 1914
Surname Forename(s) Surname Forename(s) Church / Register Office Registers At Reference
CORNWELL John RICHARDSON Isabella Bradford, St. Paul Manchester 32/2/85

If you're going to M/c to see the m.cert, then the entry # (=85) is handy to know.
