Bedford St Paul marriage 1858
« on: Monday 20 August 12 10:38 BST (UK) »
Hi
If anyone has access to Bedford St Paul marriage registers or banns, would they look up a marriage either 11 July 1858 or 25 July 1858 for Thomas Dixon Hoadley and Sophia Agutter please?
Need some details on Thomas (ie age, father, residence) please.
Thanks
Helen

Sophia Hoadley died in Bedford in 1860, and a Thomas Dixon Hoadley married in Leeds in 1861 and died in Wakefield in 1873 aged 40.

Assuming this is the same Thomas Dixon Hoadley, Thomas Hoadley
 was living in Wakefield in 1861 with his Batty in laws, aged 28 born Leeds.

In 1851 Thomas Dixson Hoadley 18 shoemakers apprentice born Leeds was living in Methley Yorks with the shoemaker, so no help in finding his parents.

And inevitably I can't see him in 1841! I'll continue looking

Hi David
Yes thanks, it's making the connection that is difficult, but he was a railway goods guard and there is a direct connection between Wakefield and Bedford by rail - so it is possible.
Hmm, batty in laws! Rather unfortunate surname!
Hopefully the marriage or banns would give a clue.

1861 Leeds marriage, that looks good, strengthens the argument. Thanks.

25 July 1858   HOADLEY  Thomas Dixon   Full   Bachelor   Railway guard   Thorne, Yorkshire   
                          John Dixon HOADLEY   Gentleman's coachman
      AGUTTER   Sophia   Full   Spinster      Mill Street   
                            Joseph AGUTTER   Labourer
