Images for Staffordshire records are available via FindMyPast.  That is where I found the Bond and Allegation image (original documentation) which definitely states Enfield.   ::)

The Lighter Side / Re: International Left Handers Day!
« on: Tuesday 14 August 18 08:07 BST (UK)  »
Luckily I was never made to use my right hand, at school or elsewhere.  Crafts, I sometimes have trouble with - knitting, that's OK, but when I tried crochet I had problems, and a very kind person turned round all the patterns for basket-weaving for me when I tried that.  I use a knife and fork "normally" but turn spoon and fork round, and I carve left-handed.  Scissors in the left hand, so I damage most of the pairs that I have.  I did have a spell of having to use my right hand, following a fall (doing the Twist at a Cycling Club dinner) when I broke my left wrist.  :o

Thank you, and I hope you, too, had a good "Coddy-handed" Day!

The problem is - registration of births was not compulsory at this time, and so Catherine may never have been registered.  A baptism might be possible and is probably your best bet, but then are we looking C of E or RC - with those surnames I would favour RC?    :-*

It is the Marriage Bond and Allegation which clearly states "Enfield" in the county of Stafford.

Sorry for the delay in responding, I've been away!

Assuming that I've got the right birth registrations:

Emma - 1844 - Leeds - mmn = Hall
Alfred - 1848 - Leeds - mmn = Hall

Marriage:  Leeds - 1840 - John Parkin and Elizabeth Hall appear on the same page.  Marriage at St Peter, 25 December 1840:

John Parkin, fa, Cloth dresser of Woodhouse.  Father:  James, Labourer
Elizabeth Hall (x), fa, of Woodhouse.  Father:  William, Cloth Dresser
