Harriet's marriage

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Margaret Report 27 Jan 2014 14:43

Could anyone find the marriage of the above Harriet (no surname) who was born 1826 Hanmer, Flintshire to Thomas Powell b. 1825 Malpas, Cheshire. They married - I am assuming - and went on to have six children, the eldest of which - Thomas - was born 1850 Hanmer. I have searched high and low but am unable to locate it - or Harriet's surname. Thanks to anyone who has time to have a quick look.

Obviously a birth certificate for one of the children would be your best bet though.

Thanks Alviegal - I am discounting the Staffordshire one at the moment as it is rather far from where they were both born and subsequently had their children but I am going to check the other two locations to see how near they are to either Hanmer or Malpas. Many thanks.

Brilliant alviegal - you have got it !! You've done in a matter of minutes what has occupied me for the last couple of hours. How on earth do you do it ? Really grateful - I had just about given up.

Thank you both - you have been very helpful. I have the names of six children and most of the census returns. My big stumbling block was the marriage and Harriet's maiden name. Thanks again.
