Monica- the marriage certificate has "James" HUTCHISON, Journeyman Shoemaker, who was a widower previously married to Sarah BROWN (who died in 1872).  This all fits with what we have for Thomas.

I can't find the HUTCHISON/McFADYEN wedding on Ancestry or Scotlands People.  Do you have further details?

Yes, except for the marriage two years later (in 1883) he seems to disappear.

Hi people

A couple of years down the track and I'm still no closer to working out what became of the Shoemaker Thomas (sometimes James?) HUTCHISON (sometimes HUTCHESON), who was born in Antrim around 1823.  He was alive at his daughter Sarah's wedding in 1883, but can't be found in the 1891 Census, or in any death record.  I'm actually going to be in Glasgow in a week or so and it would be great if I could find an answer before I get there.  Any suggestions?

I think the 1939 must be a mistranscription of some sort.


Or maybe a niece or other relative of John?  My Sarah was a Sarah Ann.

She is still at the same address, minus John, in the 1939 ER, so I'm saying that is definitely him. Thanks!

Thanks. George H Ackroyd I believe married one of Sarah's children (Florence) in 1919, but she died in 1926.  I haven't chased that family yet, so could well be a grandchild.  But my Sarah was b 1871.

Um, sorry about that...lesson is don't try to do genealogy before the first cup of coffee in the morning.  It is JOHN.

No results on the Probate search unfortunately.

Hi everyone

John LEONARD married my great grandmother Sarah Ann BIDWELL (nee RODGERS) in 1919 in the Barnsley Reg District after her first husband Tom BIDWELL died aged 45 of pneumonia in 1915.  As far as I know they didn't have any children of their own (Sarah was 47 at the time of her second marriage, and had 5 living at the time of her wedding to John).

I'm trying to find out when John died (it was before Sarah's death in 1945). There are two likely candidates in the Barnsley district.  One died 1929 aged 52 (so aged about 42 at time of marriage) and the other died 1934 aged 70 (so about 55 at time of wedding).  As Sarah was 48 when she married for the second time, I'm leaning towards the older chap, but can anyone suggest a way of establishing this for sure short of ordering certificates?

Thanks Brian, but it might be a while before our next visit.  We were there about 2.30pm but it was locked up.  I did however manage to meet some of the 'regulars' who are helping to keep the graveyard tidy!

Thanks Brian, we did pretty well today.  We were fortunate in that the Rev Michael Newman, the current rector at Fulneck, kindly offered to show us the original parish registers, and was able to locate the graves of two of the ancestors we were hunting.  (Many of the slabs were overgrown or covered in moss).  We also had a look at the outside of St Wilfred's, but unfortunately we couldn't go inside.

All in all a very rewarding day of genealogy!
