James Harrison
« on: Tuesday 11 December 18 14:45 GMT (UK) »
In june 1890 my great great aunt Mary Ellen Wilson married a James Harrison at St Aidens in Billinge lancashire. It seems that he had already married in 1884. However the first mrs Harrison was neither deceased or divorced at the time of his second marriage. We think his first wife was also called Mary. Is there any way of finding out any information on his first family  eg who she was ..if they had any children and what became of them after he left

From Lancs OPC.  Is this the marriage?

Marriage: 19 Jun 1890 St Aidan, Billinge, Lancashire, England
 James Harrison - 38, Painter, Bachelor, Billinge
 Mary Ellen Wilson - 29, Spinster, Billinge
     Groom's Father: James Harrison, Deceased
     Bride's Father: John Wilson, Deceased

In 1884 there is a marriage in Haydock for a James Harrison with father James and he is a House Painter.  Edit: Collier aged 22

Marriage: 12 Sep 1884 St James, Haydock, Lancashire, England
 James Harrison - (X), 22, Collier, Bachelor, Stone Row, Haydock
 Mary Ellen Hughes - 18, Spinster, Lime Kiln Row, Haydock

What information do you have that James was previously married?

Lots of folk happy to help.

Kit the wedding for james and mary ellen wilson is correct. Her dad was john wilson and was deceased at the time of her marriage. The mary ellen hughes 1884 marriage does fit in with date mentioned on st helens beauty site ......I was searching last night and came across a james harrison and mary ellen hughes but on this link his father name was different and he died later so that threw me and wondered if I was barking up the wrong tree

I know they lived at peasley cross lane..but not sure if that was in 1901 ...James is missing off that census ...her step father Edward and step brother Alfred are listed along with her children but not sure if it is hers or her stepfathers house they are living in
