I found a marriage for a John Turner, Prescot 1882 Q4 8B 058, but no wife name is listed under the transcription. This might be a possibility for a marriage to Catherine Prescott.

Yes I looked at that, but on FreeBMD

Marriages Dec 1882 
Burke    Michel        Prescot    8b   1058    
Maguire    Mary        Prescot    8b   1058    
Marsh    Cecilia        Prescot    8b   1058   
TURNER    John        Prescot    8b   1058    

So not hopeful

I was trying to find the birth of William who is 17 in 1901.  I have failed.
Is he John and Kate’s? / illegit child of Kate/. Child of John by previous wife?

Hello McKha489,

Thank you for the information on the marriage, I can rule that one out now.

The only William that I have found is:

William Henry Turner ASHTON UNDER LYNE 1886 Q3 08D 554 (mother PRESCOTT)

I have not ordered the birth certificate yet for that one, but it is a Lancashire registration district.

Don;t think that's him - there are some other Turner-Prescott children born in Ashton in the next few years including an Alfred in 1888, and a Mary J Prescott and John James Turner potential marriage in Ashton in 1882

There's this in Ashton in 1891

Mary Ann Bowen    61
Mary J Turner    29 - niece, married
Esther Prescott    30  - niece, married
William H Turner    4
Alfred Turner    2
Joseph Turner    1

Mary, JOhn and children are still around in 1901

An update.

I have received the death certificate for John Turner (reference Pontefract 1901 Q2 9C 75). It shows that he died on 25th May 1901 at 15 Loscoe, Ackton, Featherstone. He was 35 at the time of his death. His occupation is a coal miner.

The certificate states that the informant was his widow, a L Turner (could Catherine have been using her middle name Louisa I wonder?). The address where they resided is consistent with the 1901 census that shows John and Catherine at Loscoe.

The final piece of the jigsaw is to find evidence of a marriage between John and Catherine.

Thank you again everyone for your help.

Stephen
