I have found my Great Grandparents listed in the the 1881 census as married but can't find any records of their marriage.
Any ideas?

Perhaps they never actually married.

Would you like to give their names so we can have a look?

Hello Veronica and welcome to the Community Boards. :-)

Friendly message sent to Veronica. :-)


Veronica Report 28 Aug 2013 21:35

Hello and thank you for your responses. :-)

My Great Grandparents' names were Albert James Lee and Jane Williams.

Albert was a British subject born in USA in 1857.

Jane was born in Flintshire in 1857.

In the 1881 census they were both 24 years old and had two sons.

By the 1901 census Jane was aged 44 and was a widow with 8 children.

I can find no trace of their marriage.

Any help would be appreciated.

I look forward to hearing from you.

With thanks,
