Huddersfield 1876
« on: Wednesday 19 September 07 16:33 BST (UK) »
George Garrard married Nancy Pilling  in March 1876 in Huddersfield according to the offical records  Bk 9a  pg 490.    What churches were in Huddersfield where they might have married ?     I live in the USA and have not been able to learn much about Huddersfield.   Is it a city or a district ?

Thanks,   Bettye

Hello again Bettye,

Churches: The parish church of Huddersfield is St Peters. This was a medieval church but as the town expanded in the 19th century, it was demolished and replaced with the present church on the same site.

The surrounding districts have a number of medieval parish churches, including Kirkheaton and Almondbury. As the town expanded in the 19th century, a large number of new churches were constructed in the Victorian Gothic style. These include: Fartown, Lindley, Longwood, Holy Trinity, St Pauls (which is now part of the University). The eighteenth and nineteenth centuries also saw the building of a large number of methodist chapels, some of which were very large.

Hope this is of some help,

Sue :)

Sue.    I think I need to look at the 1881 census to get an idea as to what area of Huddersfield that George and Nancy Garrard resided in.

Thanks for the info on the churches.  I am sure it is going to prove useful once I get an idea of where to look.

Regards,  Bettye

hmmmm I cannot find this couple on the 1881 census.  There are 3 possibles for Nancy in 1871, 2 in Longwood and 1 in Elland.  I can't see an obvious one for George in 1871 however. 

Just checked the marriage of Nancy and George and noticed that an Alfred Pilling married on the same day so cross checked the possible 1871's for Nancy and think this must be her:

RG10/4379/85/33

Round Ings, Longwood

Joseph Pilling, head, 45, Farmer and Manufacturer employing 16 persons
Sarah Pilling, wife, 44, wife of maunfacturer
John Pilling, son, 20, son of manufacturer
Nancy Pilling, dau, 19, dau of manufacturer
Alfred Pilling, dau, 16, Carter

Alice Pilling, dau, 15, dau of manufacturer
Clara Pilling, dau,  11, scholar
Walter Pilling, son, 7, scholar
Sarah Pilling, dau, 5, scholar
Joseph Pilling, son, 3
Malinda Pilling, dau, 1

All born Longwood.

NB; the marriage I found spells Georges surname as GARRAD not GarraRd.  Alfred Pilling married Hannah Maria Holroyd.

I checked the 1881 & 1891 censuses and George and Nancy (Pilling) Garrett/Garrad were residing in Stainland Cum Old,  Lindley.   I will try to use that info to help me decide where they might have married.   With the info that "Leggs"  just sent,  my guess is they might have married in Longwood.

I appreciate everyone's input on this couple.

Regards,  Bettye

Hi again,

Just to let you know place wise Lindley is approx 2 miles from Longwood, so I think these are the correct people. Also Outlane (where Nancy states she was born on the 1881) is very close to Longwood.

I would expect them to have married in Longwood as it was the brides parish and the groom came from Suffolk so may not have family nearby, perhap why we can't locate him on the 1871 - he may still be in Suffolk.

Nancy's birth record could be either Mar 1/4 1852, Huddersfield, 9a, pg 358 or June 1852, Huddersfield, 9a, pg 347

Also, Longwood comes under the Registration District of Huddersfield where Stainland comes under Halifax.
