Help find Nimrod Gardeners marriage please .
« on: Friday 15 September 17 06:19 BST (UK) »
I have looked unsuccessfully on Ancestry .freebmd and even Scotland's people
But can't find a marriage record for Nimrod Gardner B.1827 in Bugbrook Northamptonshire
and Mary b.abt 1830 Scotland

They are living in Helsby with a 6 month baby in 1851. He is an agricultural labourer

They have several children in Helsby then move to Birkenhead where they have more children
 
Nimrod becomes a plate layer and  they are on all censuses in  Birkenhead  til their deaths 1910

There is a Nimrod Gardner in 1841 as a cordwinder in Northamptonshire but i.m not sure it is the right man.his father and siblings  are still in Bugbrook at that time .

I would like to know Mary.s maiden name ...I wonder what made her travel from Scotland

I can't believe they didn't get married with so many children ...help finding this marriage will be appreciated.

The 1881 census shows Mary as being from Moffat Scotland
None of the other censuses give a district

Looking at their daughter Caroline's birth in 1859 in Helsby, Cheshire on the GRO Birth Index her mother's maiden name is listed as Brown

 Caroline Gardner  March Qtr 1859 RUNCORN  Volume 08A  Page 205

Added - Eldest daughter Sarah Gardner  also listed with mmn Brown
 Sept Quarter 1850 RUNCORN UNION  Volume 19  Page 236

Thanks Kay .

.I must learn how to do that type of search

The name Brown won't help  much in searching for her parents....let's hope for another breakthrough

Meanwhile I found a Mary Gardner aged 19 in 1846 in criminal court in Cheshire
6 months prison for receiving stolen goods .....  Hope that's not her

The GRO Birth Index is a wonderful resource .     Sadly with a name like Nimrod any marriage he did make should be easily found so maybe be the couple just didn't marry  :-\

The 1881 census shows Mary as being from Moffat Scotland
None of the other censuses give a district

Mofffat is just over 3 miles south of Kirkpatrick Juxta
http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/sct/DFS/

Possible

Mary Brown baptised 01 Aug 1830. Kirkpatrick Juxta, Dumfries, Scotland.


parents named as George BROWN and Sarah CRAIG

What about naming patterns of NIMROD & MARY's children
Nimrod's parents JAMES & CHARLOTTE and N&M  first child named SARAH

Is this the complete list of N&M's children?

SARAH - could have been named after Mary's mother  :-\
CHARLOTTE - named after Nimrod's mother
NIMROD - named after parent
Sarah Ann
John
Caroline
GEORGE - could have been named after Mary's father  :-\
MARY - named after parent
Richard
William
JAMES - named after Nimrod's father
Jane

Like everyone else I can't find a marriage either for a Nimrod GARD(E)NER (tried variations of surname) to Mary BROWN  ??? There is one on FreeBMD in 1842 Daventry for Nimrod GARDNER,
3 other females but sadly no Mary and there doesn't appear to be a missing female name  :-\
Tried familysearch, Cheshire OPC, Cheshire BMD too  ???

Have you found Mary on the 1841 census?

I see they were living in Birkenhead district 1901

Nimrod's death

Nimrod GARDNER age 83 (1827)   
Mar 1910 Birkenhead   8a 314

Is this Mary's death? If so, she has a middlename

Mary Amelia Gardner age 78 (c1830)
Dec 1908 Birkenhead 8a 306
