Marriage details look-up please, Great Boughton - 1860 COMPLETED
« on: Friday 06 July 12 23:57 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I am trying to determine who the parents were of Robert Hume. Would the name of at least his father be on a Cheshire marriage record from 1860, or both parents? I am not too familiar with English vital records.

Robert HUME married Mary COOKSON - Great Boughton, Cheshire - July, August or Sept. of 1860.
A reference is given of volume 8a, page 482.

1871 census - Robert Hume is with wife Mary and 7 children in Cuddington, Cheshire. It states he was born at Long Melford, Suffolk.

1861 census - Robert Hume is with wife Mary & sister Mary Hume; parish of John the Baptist, Boughton ward, Chester. It states he was born at Long Melford, Suffolk.

1851 census - unable to locate Robert Hume.

1841 census - it is possible he is with parents named John and Sarah Hume at Long Melford, Suffolk ... Robert, age 7 yrs. old. That same Robert appears not to be with them in 1851.

Robert Hume
Born c. 1834 Long Melford, Suffolk
Married 1860 Great Boughton, Cheshire
Died 1890 Leeds, Yorkshire, aged 56 yrs. old

I realize I can write to request his marriage and death records (or view microfilm) but perhaps there is a book look-up, index or something else on-line which I may be unaware of.

Sorry so long! These are the details as I know them. Didn't want anyone else to duplicate efforts.

Many thanks in advance!
Kate
