Regarding the marriage licence - I would be inclined to contact Staffordshire Record Office, and ask them if they are able to supply a better image of the Marriage Licence.  I'd explain the problem with the FindMyPast image, and ask the question - hopefully they will oblige.  You can but try  ;)

That is a good idea, I might send them an email. Thanks for your help 😊

I suppose there "might" be a record on this site - small amount to pay per view

1 record of William Kingstone marriage to Mary Robotham

good luck
looks like there is a birth record for Mary as well on that site

Hi there,
Thanks very much for that, I hadn't heard of that website before.
I am a bit stuck with finding her baptism and parents as there is a Mary Robotham, baptised 1736 in Hanbury and another in 1739 Litchfield who fits the bill.
A Mary Robotham marries a Robert Baxter in 1757 but in the marriage record it doesn't say if she is a widow or spinster so it could be the one baptised in 1736 but it might not be.
I have no idea if the Litchfield one moved to Stafford either. There were some Marys baptised in Leigh at around the right time but they died.
I was hoping the licence for Mary and William Kingstone might shed a bit of light on things!
Thanks very much for the link.
Best wishes

I just searched in the marriage licenses with only  their Christian names and the year. That was the first one in the list.

Thank you very much for the search tips 😊

It’s there, but neither surname has been indexed. It is a really blurred image
But clearly William Kingston has signed it and Mary’s name looks about the right shape  :)

Wow, that is fantastic, thank you so much. How on earth did you find that? I am so impressed, I have been looking for this for so long.
I really appreciate your help.
Best wishes


I was wondering if anone might be able to help me please?
I have looked for the marriage of my ancesters William Kingstone and Mary Robotham on FindMyPast, Ancestry and FreeReg and have been able to find the register entry. They married 15.07.1758 • St Mary's, Stafford, Staffordshire, England. The register says they were married by license, many other people's licenses are availiable to read on FindMyPast but theirs isn't on there. Does anyone know where else I might be able to look please or is it likely that it doesn't exist as it is not on FindMyPast when others are?

Many thanks and best wishes, Emma

Just in case you didn’t know, one of the witnesses to Mary and Richard’s marriage was “John Harvey”.

Thank you very much for getting back to me. That is great, thank you, I wonder if it was her dad or maybe a brother? I will do some searches for father being John and see what comes up 😊
Thank you very much

Staffordshire Lookup Requests / Mary Harvey 1781 Acton Trussell
« on: Saturday 22 August 20 00:48 BST (UK)  »

I wondered if anyone might have access to the parish registers for Acton Trussell and if so whether you might be able to look up the baptism of my 5 x great grandmother please? Her name was Mary Harvey and I would really like to breakdown the brick wall and find her parents.
She married Richard Haywood 1804 in Stafford.

In 1841 she is living in Little Bridgeford, Seighford with her husband and daughters Catherine and Mira (and a 1 year old that I can't place called Tilsedale) - b1781
In 1851 she is still there, with her husband and grandchildren via their daughter Catherine, she says she was born in Acton Trussell 1781
In 1861 she is widowed and living with her son Thomas in Stafford, again b 1781 at Acton Trussell.

I have searched Ancestry, Find My Past and family search and in all cases it looks like baptisms were recorded from 1783 but perhaps they haven't yet transcribed the earlier ones.

Many thanks for reading this.

Best wishes,

I hope this finds you all well?
I am just posting on the off chance that there might be the remote chance that anyone might have taken a photo of the headstone of Isaac Moyers/Myers died Wolverhampton workhouse 1905 Grave 7026, Reg. No. G4/13239 and if so whether ou would mind sharing it with me please?
I have been in touch with the local council and the berevement services as they will sometimes do this for ou but understandabl the record office and the grave photographing service is not running at the moment or for the forseable future.

Best wishes, Emma

Yes - much clearer now - Tedstall

Many thanks, I appreciate your help.
