Please would you look up Thomas Hainsworth (farmer) Joseph Bruce (druggist) they are the parents on my GGG grandfathers marriage certificate. His name was James Hainsworth, changed to Hanesworth when my GG Grandfather was born. In 1842 James Hainsworth married Hannah Bruce in Cheapside London, before moving to Hull then back to London (it seems) would be grateful for anything you could find Thankyou

Hi Sheila, Thank you for your offer. Looking for the marriage of THOMAS BINNEY HOY to MARGARET McGRATH not sure exactly when but their first child was born 1874. On their first born birth cert Thomas dropped the Binney from his name. He was born in Northumberland and she in Ireland. Regards Anne-Marie

:) Hello Sheila, thank you for your kind offer. I am trying to find any information regarding a Ted Griffiths who married Eliza Collins. I do not have any other information for them. All I do know is that they had a son Edward Henry Griffiths b. 9 Oct 1877. Also Alfred Bennett who married Alice Jeffrey. They had a daughter Alice Frances Bennett who died 2 May 1962 in East Bauds, Rathven. Regards, Alan
