George Coggin born 1837 Swinton
« on: Friday 08 May 15 06:05 BST (UK) »
Hi all
The brickwalls still persist
I cannot find a marriage between George William Coggin born 1837 to Mary Ann Richardson around 1865-1875, she was previously married to a George Richardson and her maiden name was Shaw, the 1881 census shows George and May Ann with a load of kids the first two must have been the kids of George Richardson
 ??? ???
ps I am assuming Swinton is in West Riding of Yorkshire??

Are you sure she was married to George Richardson?

In 1881 census there is a Sevilla Coggin.

This birth : Savilla Coggin Richardson  December quarter 1869  Rotherham  9c   526

In 1871 census Mary Ann Richardson is unmarried, with Sevilla and Harry (Not William, who should be 4)

This is Harry:

Births March quarter  1871   Harry Coggin Richardson  9c 870

and this might be William:

Births December quarter  1866 William C Richardson  Rotherham  9c   529

Birth of last child?:

Births March quarter 1887  Marian Coggin  Salford   8d   162   

Think the enumerator makes mistake on 1891 census and puts Swinton  Lancashire for the 2 sons as there is a Swinton (near Salford)  in Lancashire as well as in Rotherham

There was an Ethel 1876, Charles 1878 and Maria 1879, the latter in Salford
I was concerned about Swinton but checked the Lancashire BMD & FreeBMD but no luck, there are a number of Swintons, Swindons can get confusing I do know that they lived in Salford in later years
My reasoning so far is that when her daughter Sarah wife of John Richard Lee died in in 1936 age 62 the death cert said mother was a Shaw which blew me away so I started rechecking and found that there was a marriage in 1865 for a Savilla shaw to a George Richardson, they had 3 kids William born 1867 Savilla born 1869 and Harry born 1870 then Sarah was born a Coggin so around 1870 to 1873 she must have married George W Coggin
Savilla born 1869 married Walter Lee my Great Grandfather
Will check all what you said so far and see if it matches what I have - looks pretty good at present but the coggin-richardson marriage is still a mystery, reckon the enumerator cant spell Coggin

Hi
Eventually figured out some of the mystery
Mary Shaw married Thomas Richardson abt 1845 Mary Ann Richardson born abt 1846 had at least 3 kids William, Savilla and Harry she was unmarried I believe til around 1870 sometime she married George William Coggin and had a further 5 children, Sarah Coggin married John Richard Lee in the Bronx USA and Savilla Coggin married Walter Lee
Still cant find a marriage between Mary Ann Richardson and George William Coggin have tried all variations of Coggin no luck

Perhaps they just never got around to marrying?
