I couldn't see the marriage on the BT's for Chester Le Street. So yes, it would be worth checking in Cheshire. It does seem a long way from home to be marrying - maybe Jonathan had work or family there.  :-\

Hi

Lynne, Ruskie & Angelfish, thanks for all your wonderful help, but I am little confused as I have had an answer on another forum from somebody who looked at the Family Search beta site under Fmil Recorsd Collections and came up with a wedding for Jonathan Rowlands & Elizabeth Craggs at Cheslter Le Street in 1805,, I an now totally confused as this wedding would have taken place after the first 3 children were born.

Kin Regards

David :D

Hi Lynne & Ruske

This was th info I was given earlier


Groom: Jonathan Rowlands
Bride: Elizabeth Craggs
Date: 18 Oct 1805
Place: Chester-le-Street
Batch No.
P00058-1
Source Film No. 91090

If you go to Family Search Collections you can view the Bishops Transcripts for Chester-le-Street. For the years 1765-1821 there are 1,083 original images. You can't search these by name unfortunately as they are browse only images so it's a case of clicking the next image until you get where you want, but they will hopefully also show the baptisms for their children and any burials for the family

Kind Regards

David

I take it you have checked the BT's to see if the marriage is there? I believe some years are missing. I wonder why this marriage doesn't show up on Joiner or Durham Records Online? It is still very possible that they married after the births of some of their children.

It's not in George Bell's index either, nor could I find it on the BT's for Chester Le Street.

The batch number you were given appears to be for a birth/christening:

Chester Le Street
Births/Christenings:
P000581   1582-1812   

E000581  (sorry i don't know what this E number is but it is in the Marriages column - there are no dates given)

The marriages begin with an "M" : 
M000581   1582-1827   
M000582   1827-1831   
M000583   1832-1837   

Who gave you this information (do they have any more?) and where did they get it from?  :-\

Hi Lynne, Ruskie, Angelfish

Just back from the SOG, no info on Chester- le-Street, but I could have stayed at home because on the Ancestry Site is the CHESHIRE family tree and although this does not have the wedding of Jonathan & Elizabeth, it does have their 1st son James born 1800 in Croft.

It also gives the date of Jonathan;s birth in 1775, the names of his parents Jonathan Rowlands & Jane Morey, but also memntions the older Jonatham's birth in 1739 in Croft and his death in Middleton Tyas in 1820.I still have to find the wedding thich was not in Chester Le Street, but as the 1st son Jmes was  born in Croft, I wonder if that was where the wedding took place.

Kind REgards

David
