Sarah Sutton - b Ash, 1848
« on: Wednesday 08 June 16 21:45 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone,

I'm hoping someone can help me track down Sarah Sutton. I have her marriage to William Arrowsmith in Fauls in the Immanuel Church in July, 1876. This lists her age as 28, currently living in Sandford and her father is listed as a William Sutton, Labourer. She moved to Liverpool after her marriage and on all census from that point on her place of birth is listed as Ash, Shropshire.

But I can't seem to track her down before 1876. Would anyone help me out? It would be very much appreciated!

GenUKI says:
ASH MAGNA, (and Ash Parva) townships in the parish of Whitchurch

Whitchurch was a parish in Wem Registration District from 1837 until 1852.

So this birth registration looks likely?

1861 census this SARAH SUTTON is a servant with the HARES family again, headed by a Thomas HARES, in Millenheath

Sarah Sutton 16 unm house servant bn Whitchurch Shrops.
Class: RG 9; Piece: 1888; Folio: 76; Page: 9

There is however another Sarah Sutton born Broughton, in the correct area with father William, mother Jane. This William was not a labourer, but a Wheelwright, employing men in a later census, so maybe not the Sarah you seek.

Thanks so much Claire, KGarrad chempat and apologies for the duplicate post! That's all fascinating. I had noticed the Sarah Sutton of Broughton before but something just didn't seem right - I'm sure a Wheelwright would not have been put on her marriage certificate as a Labourer?

The Hares connection I had never come across before and that's very interesting. Could it be Sarah lied about her age on the marriage certificate and that's throwing me off? It feels like a knot I can't untie.

Thank you again, this is all invaluable help!

She could lie about her age, as is a few years older than husband, instead of just 1 year as claimed?
