Fairless/Walton Family Puzzle Sunderland
« on: Thursday 11 October 18 19:34 BST (UK) »
Greetings from Winnipeg Canada.

I am really puzzled when it comes to find the Thomas Fairless Margaret Walton marriage

Thomas Walton born 1797 Sunderland

I believe he married a Margaret Walton 2 transcribed baptism records which read as follows
Name:   Sarah Fairless
Gender:   Female
Birth Date:   8 Dec 1834
Birth Place:   Sunderland,Durham,England
Father:   Thomas Fairless
Mother:   Margaret Walton
FHL Film Number:   91114, 91115, 91116

-------
Name:   Margaret Fairless
Gender:   Female
Birth Date:   11 May 1837
Birth Place:   Sunderland,Durham,England
Father:   Thomas Fairless
Mother:   Margaret Walton

----------------------

I cannot find a marriage of Thomas Fairless to a Margaret Walton.

I did however find a transcription of a marriage in 1834 in Sunderland
Name:   Thomas Fairless
Gender:   Male
Marriage Date:   22 Feb 1834
Marriage Place:   Sunderland,Durham,England
Spouse:   Margt. Simmons
FHL Film Number:   91114, 91116


On the 1851 I find  the children Margaret and Sarah living with relatives or I believe that is them as the ages are a bit off.
:   
Name   Age
Walter Cheal   32
Hannah Cheal   28
Enna Cheal   8
Jane A Cheal   6
Walter Cheal   3
William Cheal   10 Mo
George Walton   73          Father in law
Sarah Fairless   15           Niece
Marguerit Fairless   12   Niece

Can any kind soul have a look and see if they see a Fairless Walton marriage and if not any suggestion is greatly appreciated.

Best wishes.

Jim

Could it be Margaret Walton was married to a Mr Simmons before she married Thomas Fairless  :-\

Hello all. An index of C of England marriages in Co Durham in the time frame we are searching shows a  likely Thomas Fairless had two marriages:
Thomas Fairless m. Margaret Simmons in Sunderland on 1824-02-22
AND a Thomas Fairless married an Alice Walton in St. John's Chapel on Dec 17,1834 ....
Perhaps this might help.....sorry that I only have the index here at home...no further details, buy I am hoping some other Rootschatter may have further details, should you desire.

There is a Thomas Fairless and wife Alice with their children in Stanhope Durham 1851 census, so could be a different Thomas . Born 1811 Stanhope.

The Thomas FAIRLESS marriage on 22 Feb 1834 at St John's Stanhope to Alice WALTON has a note "Thomas Fairless otherwise Thomas Jackson".

There is a baptism of Margaret WALTON to parents George WALTON and Jane BRASS on 27 June 1802 (birth 29 Nov 1801) at Sunderland. They also have a Hannah baptised 1824, so a possibility for the family in the 1851 census you have.

Still can't find Margaret's marriage (s) though.  :-\

That solves it for me I think except for one question
Although she had married a Simmons I suppose when she registered her childrens birth through the second marriage to Thomas Fairless she used her maiden name Walton

 Thank you all.  You are all so helpful and I really appreciate it

Hello again jim234j. I, too, am a descendant on his Fairless lot.... I think your Thomas is my 4x great grand Uncle.  I have quite a bit of information on the earlier Fairless families of County Durham as well as my lot who crossed the River Tyne into Northumberland. I am more than willing to share any and all information.  You say you are in Canada...there is also a line of our Fairlesses that went to Australia... ;D    Happy hunting! Sincerely, patrexjax
