Hi Everyone,

I have a birth certificate for my great-grandmother Agnes Emily Croxford (born 1886) which shows her parents as Thomas Croxford and Emily Webb (possibly Webbs); however, I cannot find a marriage for them.  The closest that I can find is a marriage between Thomas Croxford and Emily Street.

I have attached an image of the birth cert of Agnes and would be grateful of any help anyone can give me in finding evidence of the marriage between Thomas Croxford and Emily Webb.

Thank you,

Nic

It looks as though she married a John Charles STREET JunQtr 1876. They are on the 1881 together with an infant son John.

Sadly it looks as though both husband and son died Jun Qtr 1881

Thank you Maureen and Giggsy for your speedy responses!

From your kind research ..... "Webb" is Emily's maiden name and she then married John Charles in 1876 to become a "Street".  John and their son both died in 1881 before she remarried, this time to Thomas "Croxford" with whom they had Agnes Emily.  On Agnes's birth certificate Emily is down as Emily Croxford, formerly Webb so must have reverted to her maiden name for the purposes of recording on the certificate.

So, the reason I couldn't find a marriage certificate is because I have been searching for a marriage between Thomas Croxford and Emily Webb when I should have been searching for a marriage between Thomas Croxford and Emily Street.

I shall have a look for that one in the morning!

Thank you both again - much appreciated!
