I came across the 1881 census just as I was logging off!

Obviously no children recorded. Still can't figure out what happened to the two surviving siblings.

That's solve Thompson, Rosie. Thanks. (Must remember to use the "Sounds Like" on GRO!!)

I can't find an obvious remarriage for Mary.

Later: there is a marriage for a Mary FarrEr in 1880 (spelling again Michael).  Married Edward Foster. (Fibbed about her age, but looks like the correct one.)

Later, Later: can't find them in 1881, but they seem to be there in 1891. Edward was born in 1854 in Sawley, Lincolnshire. Appears to be no children. (Mary's getting younger!)

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.

Well, well.

That seems to be the same man. His parents from his christening record were Aaron and Ann. Aaron also recorded on WedCert to Jane Booth. Seems to be a slight fib about "first marriage" in Charlton City!

Wonder what happened to Jane?

Thanks Rosie  :)

Born Kirstall 1825, John Cawood Cook or Cooke married Jane Booth (no details) at St Peter, Leeds in October 1847. He is recorded as being a Shoemaker.

If they are still living  ::), Can anybody find either of them in 1851 or 1861?

Thanks people - I knew somebody on the site could help.

Must admit, when I couldn't work it out, I thought it was in Welsh  :P

1861 was part of the problem.
Can't find the family there.

Think I need a new pair of eyes  8).
