Where is this place in Yorkshire?
« on: Friday 10 January 14 08:30 GMT (UK) »
1861 Census.
York St. Mary.
Hannah Fowler born c. 1815 Sutton on Derwent.
Daughter Mary Hannah b. 1860 York.
Head of family is William Fowler born about 1808 in ??????????????
Have traced back to marriage 1859 and also Hannahs first marriage etc. (though not her parents).
I am stuck on tracing William back as I suspect there would have been a first marriage.

Can anyone tell me where his place of birth is please?
Many thanks,
Josie.

Looks as if it starts with an L and ends ing but I can't find a suitable place.   The transcript I looked at says Didling but I don't think that is in Yorkshire.  From his occupation I would guess the 1851 census is HO 107 2354 126 15 when he is married to Ann and a mother in law called Mary Potter (could be Polter) is living with them.  In 1851 William is born Marton, Yorkshire.  No proof as yet but worth looking at any way.  William and Ann are in St Martin, Micklegate in 1841 too.

It looks like Lidling.

My guess would be Lindley, near Harrogate.

Who was named as his father on the marriage details you have?   Did it show him as a widower?   If you don't have that certificate then that should be the first step.

First letter of the place name doesn't look like any other capital Gs or Ds on the page, but quite like the capital Ls of Laughton and London on page 47, including the little swirl at the top of the letter. Apart from that I can see .. ling at the end of the word.  :-\ Still doesn't make sense as a place name:
Li--ling?
Is William still around in 1871?
