Northumberland / Re: Blyth Market Square circa 1960

Hi Oaker,

Just realised that no-one has welcomed you to the site  :'(

So - welcome to rootschat.  It's great for all sorts of family and local history but there is a particularly avid group of Blyth folk - both current and ex-pat.  If you haven't already done so, try reading the very long thread titled Blyth History.

I have checked the Northumberland marriage index which covers all marriages in the county from 1813 to civil registration in 1837.  There is no William Sweet/Elizabeth Whinstone marriage so that suggests a marriage after 1st. July 1837 and, if they were married in England, you should be able to find them on freebmd.

I wasn't going to TWAS but did look them up at Woodhorn for you  :)

The surnames are correct though there is a possibility that Winskell could be Winskill.

Elizabeth's father was called Thomas - occupation Miller

Sorry, Holum, our next census is 1921 and we won't be allowed to see that until 2021

I should have pushed them harder at Woodhorn last week - the marriage records ARE there!  It wasn't my cousin who did that marriage challenge but she knew who did and word has just come back.

Sorry for the delay folks but I should have an answer next week.

Going back to the 'missing' marriages - I shall ask them again on Wednesday, get them to check more thoroughly.

I also have a distant cousin who does these marriage searches - I shall ask her what happens if the church records are not available (I'm curious now). It could turn out that it is one she did as she heads up here about twice a year to do them!

I don't think they use the church records.  There is some clever way of calculating the church from the GRO records.  It was once explained to me but was very complicated and I've forgotten how  :-\

So disappointed - the only records for St. Augustine, Fenham held at Woodhorn are baptisms 1945-1983.  :'(

So, if neither TWAS nor Woodhorn have the marriages it seems likely that they are still at the church.
