I have been looking through the parish register for Kirkby (Kirby) Ravensworth in Yorkshire, and found something that may be of interest.

"Robert, son of Robert Macky, Esq of Budge Row in the parish of St Antholin in the City of London, born at Hoxton in the parish of St Leonard, Shoreditch Nov 14, 1758 was christened in this church January 19, 1769"

I have a jpg image of this page from the PR if you would like me to send it to you.  (image #78)

GROOM: George William Hammond (b1866), widower, from Newfound England (farm), Hauxwell / Constable Burton (in Yorkshire Dales).  George was the son of Mark Hammond and Jane Richardson
BRIDE: Loretta Teresa Garvey (b1887), spinster, from Sunderland, but may have been resident in Bainbridge in the Yorkshire Dales.

Loretta was Irish Catholic and worked for a family as a nursemaid.  She apparently spoke fondly of visiting Barrow when she worked with this family.

The marriage does not appear in the national indexes.  And they do not appear to have married in a local parish, either in the Dales, or in Sunderland (St Marys).

I don't believe any of the RC registers from this era in Barrow have been deposited, filmed or transcribed, so I believe the only way is to consult the actual parish register at the church.  Because I am in Canada, I am hoping someone might be able to have a little look for me.

Sorry, I don't know which RC parish - but I might plump for St Patrick's since he is the patron saint of Ireland.  (St Patrick's closed in 2009 and is now linked with St Columba)

Leonard Wilkinson's probate index entry and his gravestone at Downholme, Yorkshire indicates that he died in Bournemouth on Feb 16, 1879 at the age of 50.  His death was registered in the district of Christchurch, Hampshire, which covers the parishes of Christchurch, Bransgore, Sopley, Hinton Admiral and Holdenhurst.

He was married to Ann Carter in 1874 in the Hull area - at the ripe old age of 45.  He and his two brothers, Ralph (b. 1827) and Thomas (b. 1834) all married late.  Around the time of Leonard's death, the three brothers went their separate way after living and farming together at Coldstorms (likely as tenants).

I have no idea why he would have been so far from his home at Coldstorms farm in Downholme, Yorkshire where he lived since birth.  He is from a farming family that had been firmly rooted in the Downholme / Walburn area of the Yorkshire Dales for about 85 years, so I am hoping the find a death notice, but haven't had any luck so far.

The Common Room / Advice on posting broad lookup request on Rootschat
« on: Thursday 08 January 15 07:28 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to find my great grandmother's marriage that took place sometime between 1913-1923.  The marriage is not listed in the national index - unless the names have been badly mis-transcribed.  I only have the general area of the Lake District and the fact that it was most likely a Catholic marriage.

My question is this:  Can i post multiple lookup requests; each one specifying a different Catholic parish location in the Lake District; e.g. "Lookup Request - Garvey/Hammond marriage 1913-1923 - Dalton in Furness". 

[First Names: Loretta Teresa & George William; catholic church in Dalton is 'Our Lady of the Rosary']

I believe the only way to access this information (registers not deposited and not microfilmed by LDS) is to visit the locations which is not feasible for me any time soon because I am in CANADA.  And because Loretta's daughter, my grandmother, is now 92; I am really hoping to get some help finding this info sooner rather than later.

Advice, please Rootschatters.  (I am asking for advice on this, because the last time I tried to do something along these lines on Rootschat, I was directed to keep it as a single topic.)

Trying to find marriage record for my 91 year old grandmother's parents Loretta Theresa Garvey (b 1887) and George William Hammond (b 1866).

Marriage more likely took place 1920-1922 because 1st child of the marriage was born 1923.

Second marriage for George after he was widowed in 1913 and first marriage for Loretta who was Catholic and grew up in Sunderland (St Mary's).  George was a farmer who lived at house called "NewFound England" (now in Catterick MOD training grounds) in Grinton/Aysgarth/Thornton Rust area of Yorkshire.

No luck with BMD indexes after manual search on both surnames.  Family members have looked through numerous parish registers in Sunderland and Aysgarth area.  Prior to her marriage, Loretta worked as a nanny for a family that visited the Lake District often and was thought to be quite fond of the area and so we are now thinking she may have chosen to get married here.  (Dalton-in-Furness is one place in the Lake District that she visited)

It's a lot of ground to cover and I'm over in Canada, so I'm hoping for some help.  Even an unsuccessful lookup will be useful information.
