Macclesfield marriage lookup please *COMPLETED*
« on: Thursday 07 June 12 04:10 BST (UK) »
Henry WITHERS married Harriet RUSSELL  Dec qtr 1845 at Macclesfield. In later census, Harriet states she is born c1827 at Kings Somborne/Sombourn (Hampshire) but I cannot find her in 1841.

Can someone please look for the marriage to see if her parents are named and if she was a spinster or widow (unlikely as she seems to have been only 18 at marriage)?

No other information required at this stage other than to confirm her parentage.

Thank you.

Hi Sandra,
