Looking for marriage record in England
« on: Saturday 15 December 18 21:49 GMT (UK) »
I have been looking for a record of marriage for my 3GGs for decades. I am also looking for this record for potential clues about their place of birth and parents.
This is the information I have but it is not verified:
William Lambert b 1817 maybe Sussex.
Esther Campbell b 1817 maybe Portsea.
They were likely married in Portsea, Surrey or Sussex.
They seem to have moved around at lot and I can't find record of them in 1851.

This could be the record of marriage with a misspelled family name for my 3GF but the location is off:
https://www.ancestry.ca/family-tree/person/tree/86762533/person/36546481376/facts

This is the information I have on Esther so far:
https://www.ancestry.ca/family-tree/person/tree/86762533/person/36546481376/facts

I would really appreciate breaking down this dam after all these years.

Can you tell us where & when their first child was born, please?

Unfortunately the link won't work for people who don't have a Canadian Ancestry sub.   :-\

How did you establish the possible birth places?  Do you have them on a later census?

1841 Census HO107/ 413 Book 2/fo 8 p 13
Portsea
William Lambourne 45 b Hampshire

Piece413Book2Folio8Page number13

William Lambourne Age 45 -(basket maker) all the other censuses state he is born in Brighton, Sussex England
Esther Lambourne Age 20
William Lambourne Age 6

They were very likely illiterate. The family name is actually Lambert.Age is incorrect for William but ages of Esther and William fit.

I have the following info about their marriage. Don't remember where I got it.
marriage:
Oct 1849 Brighton, Sussex, England
Esther Campbell

William's occupation is "basket maker" in other terms, he was a travelling gypsy
Some of his children took on the name "Campbell" which is believed to be Esther's maiden name instead of Lambert. Would seem a slight to their father.

Thanks for the extra information.

The ages are quite off in 1841 aren't they if William and Esther are supposed to be the same age  :-\

Who does William 6 belong to? 

Maybe they weren't officially married (I can't see your links posted earlier) and Campbell was technically their birth name.

William is their first born (see list above). I have most of their Christening records for the children. As per their Christening records, they were all born Lambert as their family name. I am really looking for Esther and William's marriage and parents. I was hoping their marriage record would give clues to their parents' names.
