Afternoon Everyone

I am trying to glean extra information for some ancestors, information that will be available on their marriage certificates but I am hoping that someone would be kind enough to check to see if any are transcribed on the UK Parish Records please? If not available, they remain on my shopping list.

Maternal Direct

George John Tucker and Emma Taylor
(Sept 1855 – Shoreditch 1c 363)

Joseph French and Louisa Jane Savage
(March 1859 – Mile End 1c 825)

George William French and Elizabeth Smith
(Sept 1888 – Whitechapel 1c 659)

Paternal Direct (and Indirect)

Mary Ann Ambrose and William Oakley
Sept 1852 – Hitchin 3A 291

Lily Ambrose and Walter George Woods
(June 1896 – Pancras 1b 70)
Particularly interested in the residences and witnesses

Elizabeth Ambrose and Francis Kellow
(Dec 1904 – Pancras 1b 115)
Particularly interested in the residences and witnesses

Thank you

Janet

Thank you Andy and Helen

So Louisa was a minor - that might explain why she kept going through a lot of Census Records!

EDIT: Andy have PM'd you, thanks

Good Morning Everyone

I am adding to this thread as it is similar type of help I need please.

Having booked time at my local Library computer, I have collated a number of online images of marriage certificates but having trouble - in deciphering details because of the writing. Any help would be much appreciated (there are quite a few - baker's dozen!)

1. Marriage of George Tucker to Elizabeth Pound on 30 October 1819 – I cannot decipher the witnesses’ names – they look like Fanny Hill Tucker (??) and Christiana Southgate?

2. Marriage of William John Thompson to Eliza White on 6 February 1822 – I cannot decipher the witnesses’ names – they look like William White and Mrs White Jnr???


3. Marriage of William Green to Sarah Shears on 20 July 1835 – their witnesses look like David -- not sure of surname - and a Mrs Jackson (think she is probably a serial marriage witness!)


4. Marriage of George Alexander Plunkett to Harriet Payton on 18 February 1842 – he lived at Woods Buildings but I cannot work out the name of her residence at time of marriage – it looks something like ???man’s Row


5. Marriage of Henry Steel to Isabella Tait on 13 September 1844 – I cannot decipher the witnesses’ names – the second might be Jane Tait but the first could be anything

6. Marriage of William Thompson to Eliza Brown 21 May 1846 – I cannot decipher one of the witnesses’ names – or the occupations of the groom or the fathers! Also what is the note in the margin?


7. Marriage of Thomas Owen to Elizabeth Brown on 17 July 1849 – is anyone able to decipher the street name for Thomas Owen’s residence at time of marriage please?


8. Marriage of James Rattle to Isabella Clement on 25 August EDIT 1849 (not 1856 - see following from rootgather) - The witnesses on this register entry please – looks like Henry Fagg (?) and presumably Mrs – but I cannot read her name at all!


9. Marriage of George Plunkett to Caroline Green on 25 December 1862 – who were their witnesses please?


10. Marriage of George Wardle to Isabella Steele on 17 May 1868 - The witnesses on this register entry please – Nathaniel Boocock and someone Kelly


11. Marriage of George John Tucker to Harriet Plunkett on 18 May 1890 who were their witnesses please? It looks like George Plunkett and a Mary Ann somebody? Also what was the groom’s occupation please?

12. Marriage of Francis Kellow to Elizabeth Ambrose on 24 December 1904 -.The witnesses were Ernest Albert Kellow and Daisy Glen…..something?

13. Marriage of George John Tucker to Elizabeth Schwarz on 25 December 1912 - Their witnesses were George Tucker, and who else please?.

Just in case anyone thinks I just enjoy collecting random marriages - I'm not, all these people are connected to me (or I am connected to them!)

Thank you to any eagle-eyed members out there.

5. First witness looks like Sargent (maybe C. Sargent?) and not convinced that Jane's surname is Tait. Not very helpful I know but perhaps someone else can look at it.

6. Not seeing this marriage - where did it take place please?

I have just looked at the image I saved - and it is very blobby ( no excuse I know), am just trying to find it on freebmd - and nothing coming up - so will have to go back to the Library and try to find it again, obviously my proofreading skills of my work are deteriorating.

Thanks for your help with the others though

Aaah Rootgatherer, no wonder it couldn't be found - i couldn't even read the bride's name properly, that is the one (still looks like Brown to me on the image) and I had the year wrong again.

Think I had better spend the rest of the afternoon checking (and amending) my stuff .

Thanks for your help with this, it is much appreciated
