Seeking town of origin in England??? Huntley Family in Onchan 1881
« on: Wednesday 26 June 13 05:03 BST (UK) »
Dear Forum,

I am seeking to assistance to try and locate details for my Huntley family line. Thomas and Mary Huntley residing in Onchan in 1881 census states England as birth place. 5 children listed as born Douglas IOM.
I have located a possible reference to a wedding for Thomas James Huntley to Mary Ann Simpson in 1864 (Thomas James Huntley father as witness). Are there any documents/records that may list where in england they came from regards Jason Australia
HARRISON - Kidderminster/Leicester/Loughborough, BASKERVILLE - Bromyard, COOPER - Wareham, BARTLETT - Swindon Wiltshire, Swanage
COOPER - Corfe Castle, Swanage, Wareham, Steeple
PERRINS and PERK - Old Swinford

On Family Search at one of their children's Florence's christening the mother middle (maiden?) name is listed as Waller

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/X5GW-HXX

So maybe this is their marriage in the Isle of Man in 1865

Well done Kay !

[ amend, better found ]
1871 looks like Thomas may be listed as Thomas Hunter 23 unmarried servant born Ouchan ?
(may be he hadn't been there long?)
RG10 5772 6 page 18 Balla Quinney "Moat"(?)
