Jackson-Rigg marriage @ Muncaster 1863
« on: Saturday 21 July 18 10:55 BST (UK) »
I started a thread in Westmorland:
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=797123.new;topicseen#new
and one of my respondents suggested broadening it to Cumberland.

It looks as though it might help me if anyone has access to the Muncaster marriage register. I seek the parents of Thomas Jackson, originally from Westmorland, who married Muncaster girl Hannah Rigg in 1863.

Or anything else known about TJ's migration to the Muncaster area. Was either of the mills at Broad Oak a bobbin mill where he might have worked, for instance?

1881 Census has him as age 50 and born in Hugill, Westmorland.

Hannah obviously had married before, as there are Rigg children on that census.

Marriage in Bootle (Cumberland) Registration District
December qtr 1863

She hadn't married before, but she did have an illegitimate daughter. And her illegitimate daughter then had an illegitimate daughter of her own. Charming family!

Found them as a family  on 1871 and 1881,
1871 he states born Strickland
1881 Hugill,
1863 they married a bit late in life it seems which made me wonder if either had been married before but you have stated above not so

Personally I think a certificate is called  for

Louisa Maud,
I get the impression that Thomas was a bit of a rough diamond who had lived a fairly footloose and fancy-free life from quite an early age. I also sense that Hannah had been around the block a few times herself. She had had her child while in domestic service, which must have caused its own complications - the child was fostered out locally. It's possible that Thomas was the father of the child, but he never quite got round to describing her as 'daughter' in the censuses.

Yes, they were older than average when they married: Thomas 33; Hannah 28; but not excessively so.

According to the census he was born 1831 which rules out a birth registered , (began 1837)

 I really do think it might be worth investing in a marriage cert,

There might be a baptism somewhere online 

No not excessively old to be married  but I did wonder if either one had been married before.
