Adam Smith Snr b c1823 Oxfordshire
« on: Thursday 06 December 18 11:51 GMT (UK) »
Hi,  I have already posted re Adam Smith Jnr,  but I am trying to find any Marriages for Adam Smith Snr,  I believe one Marriage was to Emma Jeffs but cannot find a thing,  If anyone can find anything it would be very much appreciated.   I know Smith is a big task but I am really trying to unravel a few things.

Adam Smith Jnr was born in Henley, Oxfordshire in 1844,  I have him on later cencuses with Jane, Jenty or Genty  I am now working on his father but struggling.

Many thanks in advance,  Sue

The above is with his mother in 1851, she is a Nurse, Adam now 28 unmarried in Hesington but later census reurns would suggest he married an Elizabeth.

Thank you Trish,  yes I believe the Marriage to Elizabeth is Correct and West Ham fits with Hubbies Area,  I believe though there was a First Marriage to Emma Jeffs possibly as I have a birth cert for Adam Junior and it shows Mum as Emma Jeffs.  Many thank and if anyone has any luck in finding a first Marriage it would be appreciated.
