As obviously other people are too, I'm having difficulty finding this family.  I suspect this would be your Rebecca

Rebecca Moffatt marriage December qtr 1884 Chorlton Lancashire 8c 805 to either James Lord or Joseph William H Stange

Unfortunately I can't find them in the 1891 census, the other female was Alexandra Mills which I  hoped would help in finding one or the other males but without success.

Would it be possible that they emigrated?

Sorry for the delay in replying Mary.  Thanks so much for taking the time to look for me.  I know quite little about this family, so yes it's quite possible that they emigrated.

I will order Rebeccas marrige cert

Many Thanks again

Did you find any more info on Rebecca Moffatt?  She married my Great Grandfather, James Lord in Chorlton, Manchester and they had three children Annie, James Baxter and William (My grandfather). If you know anything about James or Rebecca I would love to hear.  I am hitting a brick wall with them. Thanks
