Bristol Marriage LookUp - ? a FreeBMD error COMPLETED
« on: Wednesday 29 September 10 22:28 BST (UK) »
Hi Folks,

I know John Richard SLADE had a wife Eliza.  Running a FreeBMD search I got 2 results.  The results are in the same quarter!  I'm fairly sure he didn't marry twice.  The page numbers are 117 & 147, which is worrying.  Although the transcribers are different, there is no page image for the SLADE/SIMMONS marriage.

In 1871 John lived in the St. James & St. Paul district in what looks like Stokes Cross.

Please can anyone do a church, or other source look up please?  I have also looked at the Ancestry page images and the typeface of the middle number looks like a bad 4 , or bad 1. 

Regards

Mike

hi

in the marriage registers there is only one John Richard Slade in Dec 1872....6a 147
and there is an Eliza Williams married Dec 1872 6a 147.
There is an Eliza Simmons married in Dec 1872 6a 117 too.
To my mind as there no other John Slade's married in that quarter I would put my money on Eliza Williams as his bride and who ever transcribed the records needs to go Spec Savers ;)

Looks like the transcriber was unsure of the page number - the GRO image is a definite 147 but the straight side of the 4 is bolder than the rest of it hence 117

Mike,

Free bmd uses a double extraction procedure so if both transcribers give the same info. only one datum will be found.  If the transcribers
show differing data , both will be given.

I have not needed to use freebmd for quite a while but if you have a look, I think there's a reporting link to decide which of the entries is correct.

Regards

Chas

Thanks Chas, Carole and Cal,

Eliza WILLIAMS it is then. 

Information is for a good cause:  history of a WW1 soldier on a village war memorial.  His descendant relatives have now been found!  Eliza WILLIAMS was his mother.

Thanks

Mike
