Hmmm I'm not sure and this difficult as yes she would be old when married and I can't work backwards as she is sister of an ancestor, so a distant aunt of mine.

Hmmmmm anymore advice?!

Cheers,

Peter

If this George was the husband of Catherine who died Feb 1839 and was buried at Bedale, and is also the chap in Andy's 1841 census, he didn't let the grass grow under his feet!

There is a large discrepancy in the age of the George Craggs in census 1841 at Richmond, and George buried at Bedale in 1850 though.

To find out if people are relatives, you must work backwards............

There is this death for a George Craggs also at Patrick Brompton, no idea if he was married to the Catherine I posted above.

If so, he seems to have been some years her junior.

How do you know she was born in 1790? 37 seems rather old for a woman's first marriage in those days. Was she married before?


Cross-posted with Mike*.
Still seems old for first marriage.

Hi there,

I'm trying to see if George and Catherine Craggs are relatives of mine.

The married in Bedale in 1827.

She was born 1790 in Crakehall, Bedale, Yorkshire. Do they appear on the census? That should confirm is she related to me.

Thank you,

Peter
