Posting another thread about this man won't get you any different answers.....and will, in fact, only antagonise people.

Buy the 1842 marriage cert.....get some facts

I now think Ann Dobson was Jacobs 1st wife, there is a marriage 1803 in Bridlington, I cannot see any children for them. There is a possible death for Ann in May 1842 buried in Whitby. I then think Jacob re married to Mary Northwood in 1842.

I think Ann Dobson was Jacobs 1st wife, I can see a marriage 1803. I cannot find any children. I think Ann died in 1842 I can see a possible burial in Whitby 1842. I then believe Jacob re-married Mary Northwood in 1842. Could I be right?


Toyah Report 14 Aug 2013 10:54

I was not trying to get different answers or antagonise anyone I was asking for help with a different question so believed I had to start a new thread


ErikaH Report 14 Aug 2013 10:56

Yes, of course you could be right...........but unless you want to carry on wondering, spend £9.25 on the marriage cert

No-one on here can say for certain..............

Toyah, as has been mentioned, you really do need to buy that 1842 marriage certificate. The details have previously been posted but here it is again:

England & Wales, FreeBMD Marriage Index, 1837-1915
Name: Jacob Hagues
Date of Registration: Jul-Aug-Sep 1842

Page Number: 39

Jacob Hagues <<<
Samuel Kirkman

Ann Sampson
(Ignore the others)

You can order the certificate from GRO:

What information will it have on the marriage certificate, does it give birth date of those getting married? My problem is the name Jacob was carried down through generations. Does a birth certificate always reveal the parents way back then? I am intending to buy these I just wondered. Thanks


ErikaH Report 15 Aug 2013 08:20

As already explained, the marriage cert will tell you Jacob's father's name..................if he knew him.

It will also say whether Jacob was a widower...............

Marriage certs do not have the DOB's of the couple.........never have done.........

Of course birth certs name the parents - but this isn't really about a birth cert.

There is a newspaper article dated 1.5.1847, in the York Herald and the Yorkshire Gazzett. It starts Mary Hagues of Auburn House. Is any one able to veiw this article/family notice and let me know what it says please, I would be most grateful

Thank you, that's a surprise as I Thort she had married George Marrett, another certificate to buy


ErikaH Report 19 Aug 2013 16:54
