here we go -I have a theory!!!!!!!!!!!

I have found an Aaron Cooper -who fits the bill -hereford/Radnor Wales /Ludlow connections -father James-died between 1871-81 (haven't looked his birth up yet) but......

this Aaron -only one I can find in England/Wales who "fits" was b. abt 1860 -which would make him 39 at marriage

It's very possible the marriage cert has been mistranscribed at some stage - I have come across a 9 being transcribed as 5 (and vice versa) on quite a few occasions (even on FreeBMD-volume page nos)
My grandfather was 36 when he married but the cert has been mistranscribed as 30 (similar problem with 6 & 0)

I have this family from 1851-1891 - but Aaron is not at home after 1871-will search for him again.

What was his occupation on the marriage cert???

and was he a bachelor???

and would you like the census I have found -I have a really good feeling about them -but it's up to you to decide??????

that would be great thanx loads. You have been right so far. Marriage cert says bachelor and occupation as labourer
that makes sense on age as well. would love to know more on these people as it seems unusual for a widower to bring up 4 children on his own in that day and why is he so hard to find?. Have photo of him looking very dignified with hat and kravate and looks well.

I have found a birth reg
William James Oliver
Dec qtr 1878
Tenbury
6c 289

and a marriage reg
Dec qtr 1902
Tenbury
William james Oliver
Mary Elizabeth Powles
6c 443

but there are so many William Olivers/James Olivers on census it is difficult to know which is which

Having another look for Aaron
