Oh dear! A Smith conundrum
« on: Saturday 05 August 17 17:25 BST (UK) »
I am not sure if anyone is in a position to help me but there were a couple of John Edward Smiths living in North Shields at the turn of the century 1900s - one the son of John and one the son of Thomas.  The only thing I do know is that the one I want married Christiana (or Christina) Peacock in 1911 at Christ Church parish.  If anyone is able to access the parish records and could tell me which John Smith I am chasing I would be most grateful.  I am doing this for a friend so am reluctant to purchase a certificate.

Any help most gratefully received!

You haven't given details of which quarter the marriage took place in to help narrow any search

Mea culpa, no I didn't, sorry - it's the December quarter.  I think Christ Church is North Shields
