Looking for a wedding in Co Durham
« on: Wednesday 22 September 10 23:47 BST (UK) »
Hi

I am looking for the wedding on Jonathan Rowlands & Elizabeth Craggs @1791. I think that Elizabeth was born in Chester Le Street as their son Jonathan was born there in 1801. I do not know where the father was born.

Many thanks

David :D

David,

I couldn't see a marriage for Jonathan and Elizabeth on the IGI, nor could I see any other children on the IGI.

However I found Jonathan's baptism record which gives some valuable information. It reads:
Jonn Rowlands b 17th July 1801 chr 18th Oct 2nd son of Jonathan Rowland of Chester Husbandman Native of Middleton ...(indecipherable word) Yorkshire by his wife Elizabeth Craggs Native of West Auckland.

Not sure if this link will work but you need to look at the image on page 356

The word I was unable to decipher looks like 'Tiers'. I found this submitted record on the IGI:
Jonathan Rowlands chr 23 Apr 1775
Middleton Tyas
Yorkshire

father Jonathan
mother Jane

I  think it is Middleton Tyas which is in North Yorkshire near the border.  I have family from there.  Extracted record Middleton Tyas: John Rowlands was baptised 23 Aug 1767 son of Jonathan Rowlands and Jane [Moorey married 16 May 1764] if that is the one.

Janis,
Does it look like there are 2 Jonathan and Janes with sons Jonathan? The submitted record says a Jonathan was chr 23 Apr 1775? (it could be wrong of course  ;))

Hi

The 1841 Census gives his age as 68 born @1773 and his wife Elizabeth (nee Craggs) age 76 born 1765?

Kind Regards

David

So closer to the 1775 baptism ....  :-\ There are a few Elizabeth Craggs on the IGI alone ...

Hi Ruskie

But at least we know she was a native of west Auckland. Perhaps the wedding when I find it wll give some further clues.

Kind Regards

David :D
