Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: Forename of bride in 1796 marriage
« on: Friday 05 November 21 16:09 GMT (UK)  »
She was born about 1778. She died in 1850 aged 72.
Lauretta married again in 1825 at Birmingham to John Delahay (husband William Hodgkins died in 1812). She was unable to sign her name but her name is ‘Laret Hodgkins” for her second marriage.
I have her in 1841 living in West Bromwich with one of her Hodgkins grandsons. She died in 1850 as Lauretta Delay, her death was registered by one of her son’s wives.

The transcript at the Hive said her surname was Scranage.

I had a unfounded suspicion that Lauretta was the Lawrett Albutt, daughter of John and Lawrett, who was baptised in 1778 in Bromsgrove. That was before the marriage entry was sent to me though.

I have attached the full image. It looks like there’s actually two examples of handwriting on this entry. I wonder if someone was trying to be helpful and altered Larrett to Sarah at a later date? Now I’ve looked again I think I can make out a faint “tt” at the end of Sarah.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Forename of bride in 1796 marriage

A friend has sent me an image of a 1796 marriage from the Bromsgrove parish registers. We were expecting the bride’s forename to be Lauretta/Lawretta/Larrett but it seems to be Sarah to me, although I see a very faint letters at the end which looks like something has been scrubbed out.

Can anyone confirm either way? Thanks  :)

The New Grange in Leeds seems to have been in Headingley so it makes more sense that Joseph Wainman was of New Grange in Bramley, Rotherham.

Thanks, it could well be! I don’t have a good understanding of the life of an excise officer but I presume they would have moved around a lot. If this is Joseph’s New Grange then I suppose he would have leased it from the Wade family.

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Where is “New Grange”?

I have the baptism of a Joseph Wainman, the brother of my ancestor. The baptism took place at All Saints, Rotherham…

12 February 1730, Joseph the son of Joseph Wainman of New Grange, Officer of Excise

Joseph Sr had links to Silkstone, Wath upon Dearne and Ecclesfield but I’m really struggling to find out where New Grange was. Could it have been the name of his house or is it a town?

Thanks for the correction. I have a feeling that Mary and Ann were sisters, hence why Tobias, as Ann’s brother-in-law, was named in Francis Sutcliffe’s probate records.

There are two possible baptisms at the cathedral in Sheffield for each woman.

16th August 1677, Maria fil Johannis Taylor
13th August 1682, Anna fil Johannis Taylor

or

7th November 1681, Anna fil Willm Taylor
22nd March 1687, Maria fil Will Taylor

It doesn’t look like there’s an easy way to exclude one or the other  ???

I’ve seen a transcript of the marriage licence for Tobias Ellis and Elizabeth Taylor. Where have you seen her name as Mary Taylor?
