She marries Joseph on the 17th march 1894 in Burnley and it says she is a widow.
So where is George in 1891?
Also where would i get Arthur's military records from or how would i view them on the internet.
I still think that George was alive in 1891 its just finding him.
And who was Joseph Andrews?

His daughter Lavinia marries in November 1891 and it says father George English Teasel grower.
Then in March 1892 his son George Henry marries and it says the same thing.

Joseph Andrews and Joseph Hazelhurst are two different people, as the latter and son Charles (with them on 1901) and daughter Nellie b c1880 are lodging in Warrington. Joseph is listed as married.

Hi on FindMyPast is a Short Service record of an Arthur English b Cottonmouth, York aged 18 occ Labourer 12th March 1889 in the West Yorks Regiment Regiment No: 2416
Does not look to be your Arthur, but bear in mind not all records survive or have been transcribed?

As to George died prior to 1894 etc

I have looked for George's death for a number of years but with no success. I think i will have to trawl through them again. Maybe this time i might get lucky.
It seems a bit of a puzzle to me.

Is there a Cottonmouth in Yorkshire.
I still think that the military record could be Arthur's.

Just looked at it again about page 3 it mentions parents George and Ann and a brother Walter (4) at 35, Lowther Street, York
Wondering if it was Cockermouth, as mention of Cumberland on record?

I know it has been along time regarding this post but i have just had a closer look at Arthur English's service record. It looks to me where it says Father George English it says address is either Queenland or Cumberland.
I just need someone to verify it for me.
Thanks reedy
