The Common Room / Re: Looking for, parents of Francis Jackson and Elizabeth Storey
« on: Sunday 18 November 18 23:36 GMT (UK)  »
Hi,

Francis had a brother John Jackson baptised 25th December 1811 at Hutton Cranswick to parents John & Margaret Jackson. Link here: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J7Q3-MQF

I am not seeing any other children to this couple.

I haven't as yet found a baptism for Elizabeth Storey despite my searching!

As to proving whether the marriage is the correct one or not, this can be quite tricky. Pre 1837 marriage records don't give you much if any extra info, just the Bride & Groom's names & date of marriage. Some diligent clergymen (only a few!) added some extra info. If they married by Licence as opposed to Banns, then there may be some extra info there. The first step would be to take a look at the original parish register entry of the marriage to see if there is anything to work with.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards

David

Hi,

This MAY be John & Margaret's marriage.

From Familysearch:

John Jackson to Margaret Richardson on 17th December 1808 at Kingston Upon Hull, Yorkshire. Link here: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N2JC-6QN

This marriage would need to be confirmed though as its only a possibility.

Hope this helps

Kind regards

Hi,

A very warm welcome to RootsChat!

From familysearch:

Mathew Hutton married Martha St Paull in Sutton in Holderness in Yorkshire on 8th June 1808. Link here: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N2JD-TZD

A second record gives a date of 6th June 1808, but this is probably the date of the third and final reading of the banns. It also shows that Mathew was aged 28 years (born 1779/80) & that Martha was 25 years old (born 1782/83). Link here: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NXZM-C8Q

Hope this helps.

Kind regards

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: Decipher help

Hi,

Also would you agree with Fannie as her first name

Yes, Fannie is definitely her first name.

Also I agree with Gadget that her maiden surname looks like Shinnan.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards

World War One / Re: WW1 soldier missing in action? AWOL?

Hi,

It reads "on or since 3.9.16.  Death presumed".

Your man was last seen alive on 3 Sep 1916 and, as he was never found, he was presumed to have died.

Philip

Please ignore my previous post, Philip has correctly read what it says in the snippet you posted. I clearly misread it! :-[ My apologies.

Kind regards

Hi,

I believe that "OW" means "Of Wounds",  meaning that your man died of his wounds.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards

Hi,

There is a British death index record for your man as follows:

From FreeBMD

Le Bian, Pierre M; December Qtr 1918; Age 38; Neath Registration District; Volume 11a page 1500.


Neath is the registration district covering the Port Talbot area.

Hope this helps, apologies if you have this already.

Kind regards

David
