I am trying to find a possible marriage for the parents John and Alice Wakenshaw

from 1841 and 1851 census records they appear to be John Wakenshaw b 1768 Chatton and Alice ? b 1788 Beadnell

They died 1851 and 1858 respectively in Chatton

1851 for ref (William and Margaret are my direct descendants)

WAKENSHAW, John Head Married M 83 1768 Husbandman

WAKENSHAW, Alice Wife Married F 63 1788 Wife

just not seeing the marriage

Janet

Janet Report 29 Apr 2013 22:58

No me neither !!

been beavering away looking for some of them on later censuses, can come further up to date but no marriage as yet

He was quite a bit older than Alice so maybe a second marriage ?, says John junior was first child so if they did marry likely to be about 1815 ish

Janet.....Have had a look at the Bishop Barrington Reg.of BDMs for Beadnell...there is only 2 "Alice's" Baptised around 1788

1786 Alice daughter of John and Mary Douglas of Fleatham
1790 Alice daughter of James and Sarah Mills of Swinhoe Redhouses.


I think full Registers are held at Northumberland Archives
