Having trouble reading this marriage certificate
« on: Saturday 29 September 12 15:10 BST (UK) »
Hello all,

I recently ordered this marriage certificate of my Great Grandfather X3 and am having some difficulty reading it. I can read both their names, ages and marital status but that is.

Thank you for your help. :)

I think the groom and his father are Scissorsmiths (written Scissorsth )

Groom's residence Bridgehouses.

Bride's father's occupation Grinder.

Do you think it's possible the bride's father's name could be Joseph? I have found a parish record for her birth with the father's name being Joseph and him being listed as a Grinder.

Thank you all for your help.

Joseph Hudson and John Kirk were connected to the church (SS Peter & Paul, now the Anglican Cathedral). Both at different times were Parish Clerk. They witnessed many marriages (I think of them as 'the usual suspects'  :))
