Who were the witnesses on the marriage certificate? Although Charles was deceased, did it give a former occupation for him?

MarieCeleste

MarieCeleste Report 22 Feb 2013 09:30

The 1881 for that family shows a different birth year for Charles:

CASS, Charles Head Married M 32 1849 Labourer York, Yorkshire
CASS, Emma Wife Married F 30 1851 Sicklinghall, Yorkshire
CASS, Rachel Daughter Single F 9 1872 Scholar Leeds, Yorkshire
CASS, Mary E Daughter Single F 7 1874 Scholar Leeds, Yorkshire
CASS, Ester A Daughter Single F 5 1876 Scholar Leeds, Yorkshire
CASS, Charlotte Daughter Single F 3 1878 Leeds, Yorkshire
CASS, Alice Daughter Single F 1 1880 Leeds, Yorkshire

Piece: 4511 Folio: 115 Page: 10

Registration District: Leeds
Civil Parish: Leeds

Address: 7, Steander Row, Leeds County: Yorkshire (West riding)


Given that birth year, this is a possible death:

pm from Ann:

"On the marriage cert, Charles was a fruit hawker and the wittnesses were John William Gibbons and Esther Binns. They were married on 16/04/1910"

So it looks like that census is a contender .....

MarieCeleste

MarieCeleste Report 22 Feb 2013 10:34

This looks like the marriage of Ester on the 1881 census:

West Yorkshire, England, Marriages and Banns, 1813-1935

Name: Esther Cass
Birth Year: abt 1876
Age: 20
Marriage or Bann Date: 26 Sep 1896
Parish: Leeds, St Edmund
Father's Name: Charles Cass - Hawker
Spouse's Name: Joseph Binns (23) - Labourer
Spouse's Father's Name: Thomas Binns (deceased) Turner ?

Neither married before. Address for both 15 Grantham Street.

Witnesses: Simon Holmes & Rachel Haigh


(So she would be the Ester Binns who was a witness to Frank's marriage).

Frank lived in 4 Shannon St and Mary lived in 45 Middle Fold both in Leeds.
I believe they lived at 53 Middle Fold Leeds after their marriage.
Certainly their daughter Annie was born there on 20/03/1912. I don't know if there was any other syblings.

You haven't said what you're looking for.............

Do you want to trace Frank's ancestry?

If you're looking for siblings for Annie, it's easy...............MMN is on the index after 1911

Hi Reggie many thanks for all the info, St Edmunds rings a bell, is Emma Cass and Mary A Cass the same person (1891)?
Yes I,m trying to trace Frank's ancestry. I've got as far as Shannon St as Frank's address on the day he was married. Presumeably he was living with his parents at this time and I would like to find out his father Charles' ancestry. Hope I manage to get this to my threads!

Hi again MrsNick - I don't think Emma and Mary Ann are the same person - the 1891 that Reggie posted has wrong information. That transcription has copied in another family and called them Cass, plus the Helmsleys - they all lived at number 14.

The correct version of the 1891 is the one I originally posted earlier at the top of your thread.
