Lancashire / Joseph Winstanley, born 1843. Marriage.
« on: Saturday 14 October 17 11:18 BST (UK)  »
In 1871 Joseph (born 1847, Liverpool) and Ann Winstanley were living in Wavertree, Liverpool with their eight month old son John W(illiam); born in Wavertree.

From John's GRO birth registration I believe Ann was Ann Jones (born 1846, Flintshire).

I cannot find a Marriage. Any pointers appreciated.

A Catherine Cuerdon was buried 10 Oct 1851 St Thomas the Martyr, Upholland.
She is recorded as aged 78 (1773).

I've failed to find her in 1841 or 1851. Any pointers appreciated.

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Tom Farrar, 1848, Bradford
« on: Monday 28 August 17 15:28 BST (UK)  »
Tom married Mary Thompson (1846, Bradford) on 25 December 1871 at St Peter (Bradford Cathedral). He died in 1877.

From the GRO web-site it is possible that they had three children, all registered in Bradford. Thompson (1873), Alfred (1875) and Emily (1877).

I can find no trace of Mary or the three children.

Any help and pointers much appreciated.

« on: Friday 28 April 17 10:21 BST (UK)  »
In Shoreditch in 1901 at ref: Class: RG13; Piece: 274; Folio: 68; Page: 1, I have the Stevens Family ("Ancestry" has transcribed them as Slavens).

Jas., 1841, Yealmpton, Devon.
Jane A (ne Greep), 1845, Jersey, CI (sorry senior moment!)
Jane A, 1879, Shoreditch.
Catherine, 1882, Shoreditch.
Rosina, 1893, Shoreditch.

I have failed miserably on this one  :'(
Can anybody locate this family prior to 1901 or the marriage record of James and Jane?. (All the children have been confirmed as Stevens/ mother Greep on GRO).
