Title: Micheal Ball c1788 Mavesyn Ridware, Staffordshire
Post by: emjsw on Tuesday 05 March 19 23:44 GMT (UK)
Hello,

I just wondered if someone wouldn't mind looking up the marriage of Micheal to Catharine Biddulph
Marriage
10 Apr 1809 Armitage,Stafford,England

I would really like to find out whether she married as a widow please as she was older than him so that I can find her maiden name please?

Best wishes,
Emma

No status was given - none were given for any of the marriages on the page (copy of original on FindMyPast).

I note that on 1851 Census Catherine's birthplace is given as Colwich, Staffordshire - checked Colwich baptisms - no Catherine Biddulph BUT:

Catherine Biddle bp.5/8/1781, dau. of Thomas and Mary of Bobbins Lane.  (There is no death or marriage for a Catherine Biddle).

There were other children born to them - all Biddle - but then there is a Joseph Biddulph, bp.13/11/1786, son of Thomas and Mary.

I would suggest that Biddle/Biddulph were used for the same name.   

Checked burials and no Thomas Biddle in the correct time frames but there is a Thomas Biddulph bc.1747, bur.11/11/1823 Colwich and also a Thomas Biddulph jnr. bc.1776, bur.14/12/1820.  Back to baptisms and the only Thomas bc.1776 was a Thomas Biddle, bp.4/8/1776, son of Thomas and Mary, i.e. Catherine's brother.
