You can find a marriage on FreeBMD and look for them on the 1891 census

George Stephenson had two children, Robert was born on 16 October 1803. He married Frances Sanderson, daughter of a City of London professional John Sanderson, on 17 June 1829. Robert died in 1859 having no children. His daughter was born in 1805 but died within weeks of her birth.

Think your idea of a railway heritage is a bit far fetched if this is who you are thinking about. Son Robert designed the Stephenson Rocket, but he had no children!

The marriage for Amelia states she was a full age spinster, father John, deceased. He was a full age widower, father Robert also deceased. No occupations given for either father, but he was a merchant.

Witnesses Adelina Morrow and another which I can't read.


Reggie Report 29 Mar 2013 22:33

You're surely not asking us to believe that you are researching more than one John Morrow with a wife whose maiden name was Stephenson


lancashireAnn Report 29 Mar 2013 23:02

another witness was Adelina Eliza Stephenson - 3rd witness John ?????
