Challis Marriage
« on: Saturday 11 February 17 07:45 GMT (UK) »
Folks,
From Freebmd i have the marriage of Thomas Challis to Mary Wilberson in Jan Qtr 1854 Reg District of Royston,problem is other sources show her maiden name as Wilkinson.Marriage probably occurred in Foulmire or Foxton and i am hoping someone has PR's and can check her surname and father's name.
Many thanks,
Eric

Were there any children?
You can check these births on the GRO Certificate Ordering website, where mother's maiden names are now included for nearly all births.

Thank you both.No children born in England as they were in transit to Australia and arrived here in July.
I am happy that is her,spelling varied on census and her name on children's births are correct.What lead me to track this was unsourced online trees made no mention of misspelling,so happy to add to my tree now.

A baptism that may be of interest took place at Fowlmere Independent Chapel on 28 June 1837 of Mary daughter of Thomas and Betsy WILKINSON born 3 October 1836?  The question mark appears in the transcript.

Selina,
Thanks for your help.
I hope i have attached a copy of the baptism record which shows her birth 3 Oct 1837 and baptism 28 Jun 1837,so birth should read 1836,a simple error by the pastor.
Is the marriage record from online sources,please?

Unfortunately the Fowlmere parish register transcript is not online as far as I am aware.
