Hi,

I cannot find Mary Banks first marriage to a Golygan though. Could the surname actually be Gilligan/Galligan perhaps? Nearest I can find is one to a chap called Gaskell.

The 1843 marriage here on familysearch: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-X9F6-21?i=4&wc=M6F6-SZ9%3A143838901%2C158886501%2C159131201&cc=1788853

Does seem to say Golygan after all.

Can anyone else see Mary's first marriage anywhere &/or death of first husband as I cannot find that either?

Kind regards

David

Hi,

1840 George Yates is a Slater.   :-\

Ok, thanks BumbleB that counts out the 1840 marriage then! ;D 1843 marriage must therefore be the correct one.

I cannot find Mary Banks first marriage to a Golygan though. Could the surname actually be Gilligan/Galligan perhaps? Nearest I can find is one to a chap called Gaskell.

Kind regards

Hi,

From William Yates/Catherine McDonnell's marriage entry (3 September 1866) we know that William's father is George Yates, and at that time he was a Weaver (no indication as to whether George is still living or not).  William is said to be aged 21.

With William Yates born in 1844/45 there is this marriage in 1843 from the Lancs OPC website:


6th Feb 1843, St Mary The Virgin, Prestwich, Lancs.

George Yates (X); Full Age; Bachelor; Weaver; Oldham
Mary Golygan (X); Full Age; Widow; Oldham

Groom's Father: William Yates, Weaver.
Bride's Father: Thomas Banks, Weaver.

Witnesses: Daniel Keeffe, (X) & James Sheldrick
Married by Banns by John Lowthian (Curate)


There are two caveats to the above though & they are:

1. I cannot find a corresponding birth in the GRO index at all, there are a number of William Yates registered either in the Manchester or Chorlton Reg Dists that could be him, but they are without a mothers maiden surname.

2. There is a another marriage of a George Yates. This time in 1840 to a Martha Mills at Manchester Cathedral. This one isn't on the Lancs OPC website so can't determine if this is your George or not.

Hope this all helps anyway.

Kind regards

Hi,

A load of information etc regarding the Stokes family here: https://archiveswales.llgc.org.uk/anw/get_collection.php?inst_id=32&coll_id=12317&expand=

A bit more here: http://orapweb.rcahms.gov.uk/coflein//P/PHGS_144.pdf

Just Google Anthony Bowen Owen Stokes & there's loads of info re his army career. London Gazette entries, Hart's Annual Army List's, Google Books etc.

Lastly a copy of Burke's 'A genealogical and heraldic history of the landed gentry of Great Britain & Ireland, Volume 2 (published 1894) here shows the Stokes family of St Botolph's which are your family:  https://archive.org/stream/genealogicalhera02inburk#page/1932/mode/2up

Look on the bottom right corner of page 1933 & top left corner of page 1934. Includes showing Anthony Bowen Owen Stokes (died Nov 1891) parents as Hugh Innys Stokes died 1834 & Lydia Mary died 1866.

Hope this all helps.

Kind regards

Hi,

If you use the GRO website it gives a mothers maiden surname of 'Sidwell'.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Image is available for the Kirkham marriage on Ancestry.  I'd suggest that John's occupation is Clogger  :-\

Image also available on familysearch & would agree with BumbleB that occupation is indeed that of Clogger.

Kind regards
