A big thank you to all trying to help me find John Keates, I am still struggling.
The only info I have is on his marriage certificate, age about 30, labourer, living in Ilkeston, father James. The bride was heavily pregnant at the wedding (January 1872) because daughter Annie Mary Keates was born Mansfield in March quarter 1872, baptised 1873 Whaley Thorns, Derbyshire. Next child, James born1874 Mansfield. Daughter Sarah born 1877 Leeds, Yorkshire, daughter Elizabeth born 1881 March quarter apparently in Mansfield Union Workhouse, no sign of John Keates though. Son Arthur born 1883 Belper Derbyshire. No sign of John Keates found as yet.
The bride Elizabeth Keates b1850 Hucknall Nottinghamshire then re-married in 1884 in Derby.
The family seems to have moved around a lot!
I have tonight found a John Keyte born 1846 Shardlow Derbyshire, might try to trace him. The above information is just for your interest. This is the hardest person in my husband's tree to find. Happy days, and thanks once again.
