He married for the second time in 1912 at Prescot, but on this cert it says he was a widower, an't find a marriage on the bmd, so thinking he may have married abroad, a a port he visisted, a long shot I kow, but anythings worth a try...

Armed Forces / South Africa Corp
« on: Monday 18 December 06 17:33 GMT (UK)  »
My Grandfathers youngest brother was in the forces, he was born 1865 and was on the English census's 1871 & 1881, then after this ther's no sign of him.
I have been told he was with the South Africa Corp at some point in his career, but when I don't know.......
I have searched the national archive sire for him but there is no sign of himhere either.......
I have been told some records didn't survive, how can I find him?
His name was James Shard, he was born 1865, this was registered at Bolton, as he was born Kearsley.
He was in the St.Helens, Widnes area in 1895 as he married, but this is his second wife.....
Can anyone one help or give me some tips please

Lancashire / Ashworth from the Fletcher Fold Area of Bury

I'm looking for anyone with interest in the Ashworth surname....
The first lot I have in my tree are mainly from Bury, Lancs. In most of the census's they are living at Fletcher Fold, Off Manchester Rd, Bury, some later moved to the New Road area of Whitefield/Radcliffe.......
The others are from Ancoats area of Manchester,these were in Bradford in 1861, then moved to Radcliffe by 1871 and were there until at least 1901....
Both were big families....

Thanks for looking
