Was he a plumber?

Which census have you got him married to Sarah


GlitterBaby Report 19 Mar 2013 12:57

Spouse Name: Janes Robinson - James
Record Type: Marriage
Event Date: 16 Jul 1854
Parish: Shoreditch St Mark
Borough: Hackney
Father Name: James Thompson

This matches the 1861 if he was a plumber but not sure of the name of the father on the image

I believe father's name is John Robinson, porter on that marriage record.

Have received a PM from the OP to say that he was a plumber.
Will let him know how to reply on the thread.

Just had a look Margee and it certainly looks like his father was John Robinson.
