I suppose it very much depends on where you are! If you are local to the area, then I would suggest as a starting point each local library - they hold a very good selection of parish registers in their family history research sections. Failing that, then your local LDS Family History Centre where you can order the relevant registers.

Hi there, would get two marriage records to one page but with consecutive reference numbers such as Page 533 No 1066 and page 533 No 1067.

Hope that helps

A great offer Carl!

If you wouldn't mind keepeing an eye out for any ORMONDROYDs I would grateful...don't really expect any to be there as they were mainly from the other side of the city, but I'm sure its a name you will remeber if you see one!

Hello Again,

Think I have now found Ann and the rest of the family in Boston...there is a 3 yr old Charles, so looks like the "right" family :)

Hi Melm,

Had a quick look and I think your William is living as a lodger with the Mitchell family in Gosberton, Lincs. He is shown as married but no sign of his family???

He is a brick maker and also shown as deaf - is this he?

Hi Bryan,
The children were called William, Richard, John, Charles & George. They were born between 1802 & 1811 in Leeds and Liversedge which is where they remained. Jane didn't marry James until 1802, so I don't think the Lancs entry will be her but thanks for the input.


Yorkshire (West Riding) Lookup Requests / Where was Jane in 1851???

I know some folks like a challenge, so thought I would post my query.

My whatever times great grandmother was Jane ASHWORTH. She was born about 1767 (where, I don't know other than probably in Yorkshire). Her husband James, a carpet weaver, died in 1837. I don't have her 1841 census entry, but most of her offspring were in the Liversedge/Heckmondwike area at the time.

I have a burial record from January 1852 stating she was buried at Birstal and is described as "widow of  James, carpet weaver of Heckmondwike. Aged 85 years. There is also an entry in the BMD index for a death registered in the march quarter of 1852, which ties in with the burial record.

So just a few months earlier in the 1851 census, she just does not seem to appear. I thought she may even have remarried, but she is buried as ASHWORTH so don't think that would be the case.

Any ideas anyone?

Yours hopefully

Unfortunately the 1841 wont help as it only tells you whether they were born in the county of that census or not. It doesn't give any place names.

Many thanks Riley,

Looks like my man will have to remain a mystery for the time being!

Best wishes
