William Mander marriage in Dudley
« on: Friday 19 September 08 06:09 BST (UK) »
Hi there. This is my first request after signing up a moment ago so apologies first if I muck this up.
I am looking for a marriage of a William Mander to a Susanna (surname unknown). All their children  were christened in St Thomas Dudley. The IGI has 12 children to them christened between 1815 and 1837. That's 22 years of childbearing? I have William and Susannah with birthdates around 1796. He was born Stratford upon Avon. Is this sufficient information for a lookup please?
Many thanks. woodjam

Welcome to rootschat woodjam!

You've asked a very good question and you didn't muck it up.  ;D

I've got a couple of questions:

Do you have the family in any censuses?
If so, do you know Susanna's place of birth?

As couples usually married in the bride's parish, if we know where she came from it may help the search.  ;)

Hi Ruskie.
That was quick. I thought everyone would be asleep over there at this time. (I'm in Australia)
I have William and Susannah in WOR 1841, age 45, she was born in the county. William wasn't. In 1851 I have them in village of Bromley, parish Kingswinford, age 56, she was born Dudley WOR and he Stratford upon Avon. In 1861 they're in the same place, Bromley Lane. She's now 68, born Dudley, WOR.
I'm still trying to get my head around parishes, townships, villages, districts and boroughs. But that question is for another day.
Hope this helps. Thanks for your reply.

Hi again woodjam!

If no one comes to your rescue, have you thought about ordering the film of the Dudley parish registers from the LDS Family History Centre (if you have one nearby) to look for the marriage?

PS. I'm in Australia too  ;).

Hi woodjam
Welcome.

     I've had alittle look on Familysearch.org for you, I traced seven children born 1815-1823 for William and Susanna at St. Thomas, Dudley, it also list some children for a Joseph Mander and Ann, could this be William's brother?
     If so I've traced a marriage for a Joseph Mander to Ann Gill 18th March 1811 Sedgley (this is very near to Dudley) using the batch no for this marriage there is also a marriage listed for a William Mander and Ann Dudley, 11th Sept. 1814 Sedgley,
 also another marriage listed for a Sarah Mander (sister maybe) to Edward Griffiths 11th August 1811 Sedgley
  could this be your line?

To Elaine and Ruskie, many thanks for your leads and research. That gives me more to go on. And I like a trip to Sydney now and then. Will check out an LDS centre closer to home as well.

I'n very grateful to all and glad that my first posting to this site was successful.

Regards
woodjam

These people will do lookups for a fee:

http://worcestershire.whub.org.uk/home/wccindex/wcc-records.htm

http://uk-transcriptions.accessgenealogy.com/Worcs..htm (partial transcripts only)

It's always worth mentioning that you are in Australia when contacting Libraries and Record Offices in the UK. I've found them very helpful and small fees are often waived - it's probably not worth the trouble to convert small amounts of cash.

Good luck!
