Seaching for James Howard from England .
« on: Friday 23 February 18 14:11 GMT (UK) »
 
This info came  from a letter written in Australia many years ago, can anyone help  with the names of J B Litherland and his wife.  I have no idea of the area.
Male  first names unknown except initials. J B Litherland  probably  born England  married unknown and   they had no children.   He died and she later married James Howard.
James Howard was a friend of J B Litherland and they came to this country together 
James Howard had 3 sons , the eldest died 11 Oct 1960 aged 71. ( b c  1889 )
He had the name either " Litherland Howard" or  "unknown   Litherland Howard."

I have found this but don`t have full access.
Australia marriage index .   
James Howard married Sarah Jane Litherland.

Thanks, this confirms the JBL I found with parents in1861 is the right one. 1871 he is on a ship in Wales, not found in 1881 but could already be in Australia.
