Thomas Hanson m Eliza Benson 22 12 1834
« on: Sunday 12 November 17 12:25 GMT (UK) »
I wonder if anyone has access to the marriage details of this couple - my husband's g2 grandmother and father.  Trying to identify their parents, but both have very common names!  Can't find any banns etc online.

Thomas Hanson b 1810, Heighton Yorks
Eliza Benson b 1812, Selby
married 22 12 1834 in St Peter's Leeds

In hope -  Pam

No parents given, but Thomas is a Joiner, both said to be of this parish.  Thomas signed, Eliza made her mark.  Witnesses:  Christopher Barber and Robert Hargrave.

The image is available via Ancestry - try looking for Eliza rather than Thomas (Harrson) :)

Thanks for such a quick reply.

In 1841 Thomas and Eliza (and children) are living in Accommodation Road, Leeds.  Thomas is a Wheelwright, so that tallies with Joiner. 

Just a little way along in Railway Terrace is Thomas Benson (Oil miller ? whatever that is) and wife Ellen, and I was 'hoping' that these would be Eliza's parents.

I have the birth of an Eliza Benson in 1810

Name:   Eliza Benson
Gender:   Female
Birth Date:   23 Jun 1810
Birth Place:   Selby,York,England
Father:   Joseph Benson


and was wondering if that might all tie up?  Would father's occupation be recorded?

Or am I just adding 2+2 and getting more...  Pam

Have you actually seen the parish register entry for Eliza's baptism?  ;D

Eliza daughter of Joseph Benson Oil Miller of Selby, son of Joseph Benson of Heddingley Farmer by Elizabeth daughter of James (I can't read his surname as it's split over two lines  :'( ) of Burlew, and Eleanor, daughter of Charles Nicholson Farmer of Heddingley by Mary daughter of Chritopher Hduson.  Born 23 June and baptised 24 June 1810 - Selby Abbey.

1841 census - your saying "Thomas" Benson and wife Ellen threw me  :-[

I think that you are correct and that Joseph Benson with wife Ellen are Eliza's parents.  But I can't readily see a baptism for William.

Dear All,

Thank you so much.  I was away, hospital visiting, yesterday so when I signed in this morning it was lovely to get so much help.  Apologies for the misnomer - can only blame my confused head!!

I'll have a look at all this info, but in the meantime - does anyone know how an Oil Miller worked, by hand or in a mill water / wind?  Quote "Oil Miller   -  Miller of seed to extract oils for food manufacture. Rapeseed, cottonseed, linseed etc. Cottonseed oil was also used to lubricate the spinning mule"
