GARVEY & HAMMOND marriage (catholic ?) in Lake District 1913-1923
« on: Thursday 17 July 14 07:24 BST (UK) »

Trying to find marriage record for my 91 year old grandmother's parents Loretta Theresa Garvey (b 1887) and George William Hammond (b 1866).

Marriage more likely took place 1920-1922 because 1st child of the marriage was born 1923.

Second marriage for George after he was widowed in 1913 and first marriage for Loretta who was Catholic and grew up in Sunderland (St Mary's).  George was a farmer who lived at house called "NewFound England" (now in Catterick MOD training grounds) in Grinton/Aysgarth/Thornton Rust area of Yorkshire.

No luck with BMD indexes after manual search on both surnames.  Family members have looked through numerous parish registers in Sunderland and Aysgarth area.  Prior to her marriage, Loretta worked as a nanny for a family that visited the Lake District often and was thought to be quite fond of the area and so we are now thinking she may have chosen to get married here.  (Dalton-in-Furness is one place in the Lake District that she visited)

It's a lot of ground to cover and I'm over in Canada, so I'm hoping for some help.  Even an unsuccessful lookup will be useful information.

Can't find one with those names at all - maybe they never actually tied the knot  :-\

One Theresa Garvey marriage in Middlesborough 1924 but groom isn't Hammond.

Maybe they nipped off to Scotland?
