Staffordshire / Re: Elizabeth Hall and John Goreby

I can't see an image of the register, but both Ancestry and FreeReg have transcribed it as HALL. FreeReg notes that the groom is of Middleton.

If you have access to British Library Newspapers (usually free through your local library on-line depending on where you are) there are a number of obituaries for George ROOKE, son of the Admiral of the fleet. However, they don't provide actual details of his death, mostly just refering to the burial and inscription on the Monument. As others have said, regardless of how famous his father was, it is rare to have much detail of a son's death in that time, and the information you already have is quite considerable for the time.  :)

Thanks eilidh.

Now I fell even more thick ... as I continued through the Army file a few pages later was the same certificate, but type written, very easy to read. Silly me.  :-[

Ah, now I see. It's actually Birichen.
"A settlement in E Sutherland, Highland Council Area, Birichen is located 3 miles (5 km) northwest of Dornoch"

Thanks Matthew

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Marriage place (completed with thanks)

Would some one be able to tell me where this marriage took place please? I'm pretty sure it's in Scotland. The document is in an Australian Army file, fortunately it included this marriage certificate, though I have trouble reading the handwriting.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers JM  :)

I'll let you look Gadget - here's an interesting snip about William with a slight accident

(middle of the page, 2nd column)

I find Queensland papers in particular were very good at publishing interesting bits of information.

I can't see an actual marriage for John BRIGGS and Elizabeth JACOBS. The banns were posted 19 Oct, 26 Oct and 2 Nov 1777, but no marriage in the parish records for 1777 for them. Maybe this explains why their son John (buried 21 Jun 1785 also as the "illegimate son of ..." was recorded like this.  :-\

And I agree, John BRIGGS in the census may not be her father, though it is a reasonable assumption. (Looks like he is in the same household to me.  :-\ )
