For the years 1889 through to 1892. For the marriage of Henry Arthur Williamson & Florence Kate Wright But sorry drew a blank in all of them Do you wish me to widen the search for years before 1889. ? Or are you putting your hand in your pocket and order the Certificate using the Ref 7a 337. ? Any way better New’s on the other Marriage look up for George Isaac Ward. Found the marriage which gave the ages as George 21. Ann 22. Also found the signed statement of bonds…….

Mike You're a wonder! Gosh, Marina - too much for the enumerators and possibly the family -she is always Maria - wonder whether the vicar had been at the old bottle. Oh - which year was the baptism? Jan


Sylvia Report 28 Aug 2006 10:09

Hello again Thank you again for your help with my Goughs, can i ask again, please. Would you be able to find births/christenings and parents for John Gough and Mary Hearn, both born around 1804/1806 in Leicester i hope, as they were married in 1824 at St Margarets. I have tried Hugh Wallis and IGI with no luck. Thank you Sylvia

To All Leicestershire Experts Osbaston? I can't seem to find any reference to a local church in 18th century/early 19th. or any ref to Osbaston parish records.Where might someone have been baptised if they were born here? Jan


Jan Report 31 Aug 2006 09:37

As genuki didn't have anything, I used historicaldirectories*com and found: OSBASTON is a township, in the parishes of Cadeby and Marker Bosworth, pleasantly situated 2¾ miles north-east from Market Bosworth station…in the Western division of the county, Sparkenhoe Hundred, Market Bosworth petty sessional division, union and county court district. The church here has long been destroyed; the inhabitants attend the churches at Market Bosworth and Cadeby. Kelly’s 1891 (Part 2) If they didn't go there, it might mean a trawl through the surrounding areas . GENUKI gives these parishes as within 3 miles of Osbaston: BARLESTONE, CADEBY, MARKET BOSWORTH, NEWBOLD VERDON, CARLTON, NAILSTONE, SUTTON CHENEY, BAGWORTH. Hope this helps! Jan

Thank you for all that info Mike, i was a Gough before i married, so these are my direct decendants on my fathers side. Mmm i wonder what Richard owed that threepence for?, my son and i decided it could have been pronounced thrupence back then. Is there anywhere i can look to find out? It must have been both a sad and happy day for John jnr and Sarah when they got married with both their fathers having passed on. Thank you again Sylvia
