Wife of Harrison Wright b.1874
« on: Monday 20 November 06 10:26 GMT (UK) »
Good morning,

Not sure if this fits in Lancashire requests but as their child was born Blackburn I will give it a shot.

I am looking for a maiden name (or anything) on Margaret (?) b.abt1874 (+/-5) West Hartlepool, Durham.

Margaret married Harrison Wright b.1874 Richmond, Yorkshire (tailor). They had one child I know of, Annie Elizabeth Wright b.abt1903 Blackburn, Lancs.

Harrison Wright's parents, William Wright b.abt 1846 Richmond, Yorkshire (blacksmith) and Elizabeth (?) b.abt. 1847 West Witton, Yorkshire (blacksmith's wife)

1901 census shows Harrison Wright (26) living in West Hartlepool with his cousin and uncle. No sign of Margaret, so I presume they meet shortly after.

Thanks in advance if you can help or point me along any lines.

Brian

Hi Brian,

I can see a marriage:
Sep 1901 Blackburn 8e 817
Harrison Wright - Margaret Ann Scott

Will try and see if I can find a matching Margaret on census*  :)


*Hmm  :-\ Too many possibles, I'm afraid   :P

Ok, thanks for your time Tati. :)

I have a maiden name now, which is better than I started with.

To be on the safe side, however, I'd definitely order Annie Elizabeth's birth cert if they were my lot  :)

I've just had the name Scott confirmed by a relative, once it was mentioned it jogged a few memories.

Thanks again.
