Solomon derbyshire was married to a Annie Ainscough in 1919.I know it was at St John pemberton but their records stop at 1900.Is there anywhere I can find the names of Solomon and Annies parents without having to send for a marriage certificate
I am almost certain that Solomon's father was John Darbyshire but don't want to add it to my tree unless I am sure.
