Hi Everyone, I wonder if you can help me.

I am looking for...
Birth certificates for Henry, Margaret, John Thomas and Joshua.
Marriage certificates for Henry and Margaret.

Henry Grainger/Granger married to Margaret Granger. Both born before 1828. They were born in England as they had a son Joshua born in Leeds, UK and another son John Thomas Granger born in Durban, South Africa, where the whole family settled. (Henry has signed his sonís marriage certificate as Grainger but his family are all Grangers)

I have searched on quite a few websites but have decided to post on forums for a bit more help.

Many thanks
K Granger

From other thread:

'had a child in Leeds called Joshua in 1848.'

Were the parents married after his birth?

Is his birth year from his age in censuses?

I canít see a marriage on FreeBMD for a Henry to a Margaret.

The child could have been born out of wedlock and be registered under motherís name.

Do you not have death certs for Henry and Margaret?

Was his birth year 1846 or 1848?  Both dates are mentioned.
