There is an image for this marriage on Find My Past.

John's father is James, occupation labourer.

They were married on 25th August 1845.

If you are correct about his dad being John, then this appears to be the marriage:-

Marriages Sep 1845   
BRANSTON    John        Melton Mowbray    15   299    
Spiby    Catharine        Melton Mowbray    15   299

Welcome to RootsChat  :D

You could order his marriage certificate from the GRO as that should give his father's name.  The marriage was registered in SQ 1871 Bingham 7b 503 to a Sarah Glossop.

Birth record of youngest child in 1881:-

BRANSTON, JOSEPH  JAMES     GLOSSOP 
GRO Reference: 1881  M Quarter in NEWARK  Volume 07B  Page 433

Link to the GRO website:- https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/

If you haven't used them before you will need to register then click on Order a Certificate or PDF.  Fill in the details required from the information I gave above.  Cost is 11.

If you require any further assistance do ask.

No problem for me.  Just entered a name and it came up promptly.

Perhaps the computer needs a clearing out of cookies etc.?

I've just tried it and it is working fine.  Searched for one person and that came up promptly.

Sometimes you may get that message if you haven't cleared your cookies etc. for some time.  Try clearing them and see if that helps.

There is indeed a Teachers Registration Council document for a Kathleen Mary Carrick.  Registration date is 1st August 1926.  Address Rutherford College Girls School, Newcastle On Tyne.

In the Experience section is Assistant Science Mistress, date 1920.

If I have the right one she died in 1990 in Sunderland.

So as Andrew has suggested a teacher not a fellow pupil.

Death record gives a date of birth of 21 April 1899. She is on the 1939 living in Yorkshire, occupation is Teacher and single.

On the 1939 Register her surname of Little is crossed out and the name Potter inserted.  As I said before the only marriage that came up as being the most likely was the 1953 one.

Find My Past does not add anything different for the marriage and also has her first name as Dorris instead of Doris.

I'm not finding any other source of information for this marriage.

If you order the marriage certificate, do so in the Potter surname with the first name of Roland.  Just give Doris's surname in the relevant box.

The fact that it is in Westmorland means that, to me, it would be the correct marriage.  The Little family are living there in 1939.

When I was looking I put in the years 1950 to 1955 in the marriages on FreeBMD.  That was the only one that appeared and seems to be in the right registration district. 

Checking the 1939 Register shows the family living in North Westmoreland, so to my mind I would think that is the correct marriage.  Quite often errors in names creep in and are registered incorrectly.

I'll have a look and see if I can find a different marriage record for Doris.
