Possible Scottish Marriage
« on: Thursday 24 September 15 16:47 BST (UK) »
Hi,
Im just back from the archieves in Ashington.. Im trying to find my ancestors marriage..
Basically the only thing i have to go off is a walking stick which was presented to him on his Golden Wedding Anniversary (50 years) on 1st April 1889.. making his wedding 1st April 1839..

I cant find it anywhere in the Northumberland archives.

James Nelson Trainer (only have his baptism date 13 sept 1818) Berwick-upon-tweed
Eleanor (dont have her maiden name, this was why im after the marriage) born around 1820 Tweedmouth

Im starting to wonder if Eleanor is maybe a middle name.

I cant send off for the marriage certificate as i dont have James actual birth date..

any help on this would be much appreciated as my heads done in  ???

Many thanks

Liz

You owe me a cupcake.  I looked on SP and he was born 19th of May.

If you send me a PM with your email address I will send you the document.

If no one can help I suggest you get Mary Janes Birth Cert to get Eleanors maiden name.

Is strange as she is the only Child I can find a Baptism for;
MARY JANE Trainer 27 March 1840, All Saints, Newcastle Upon Tyne
Parents JAMES/ELEANOR
Abode, Painterheugh
Fathers Occupation, Cordwainer
(FreeREG)

Birth Reg;
June 1840, Trainer, Mary Jane, Newcastle, 25   320

Thought this might be of some interest to you, perhaps it was the corporation
 that presented him with the walking stick.
