Margaret Lodden and John McGowan
« on: Wednesday 06 September 17 16:18 BST (UK) »
Looking for information on Margaret Lodden and John McGowan. My 3x great-grandfather, Garret McGowan was born on 27th April 1865 to John and Margaret at St Ninian's, Stirling, Scotland. Both were born in Ireland - John was born in 1826 and Margaret in 1841 and wed in Lancashire, England on 1st February 1862. I cannot find any info on exactly where both were born and who their parents were. Apart from Garret, they also had Susan (b. 1867), Margaret (b. 1869) and Bridget (b. 1872), although there may be more who I haven't found yet!

(I have looked at the 1881 Scotland census, where Garret is transcribed to Goret.)

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :-)

The marriage certificate will give fathers names/occupations and witness names may also be helpful :)

Any recommendations as to where I can find the marriage certificate? :-)

As you have the exact date it should be found on the Free BMD index in Mar 1862 and apply for a copy. 

Where did you get the exact date from?

Sorry I'm not familiar with births that give parents date of marriage on them.

Unfortunately can't find a marriage entry on the index for Margaret and John  :(

Baptisms give Margarets name as Sutton, for her dau. Possibly they were not married?
