Hi. If anyone is going to the Record office, is it possible to look for the following and send me details?

ROBERT JOHN UPTON b 1853 in the Fenton area. Was he baptised there. I know it's a tall order.

The same person married Mary Ann FORD on the 5th Jan 1874 at Christ Church Fenton. Any details would be appreciated.

Many Thanks

Alan :-)
