James Hartley
« on: Friday 04 January 19 16:21 GMT (UK) »
I am researching James Hartley from Colne, Lancashire. He was a weaver.

He was born about 1821, was married twice and had several children from these marriages.

His first marriage was to Sarah Pickover on 10 October 1850 in Colne.

He married Elizabeth Higginson (a widow) on 11 October 1877 in the same place.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks.

I would like to trace Elizabeth's first marriage as well as finding out who James' mother was.  His father was James as well.

Do both marriage certs show the same fathers name and occupation?

Have you looked for him/found him on the 1841 census?

Any baptismal entry on FS?

I have the fathers of both wives.

I do not intend to spend money on certificates I don't need.

The information I have came from family search.

James appears on various census returns with one wife then the other.

He was born about 1821,

That is misleading as there is quite a variation in his birthyear

1850 marriage shows him as 31 (1818/19)  and the 1877 as 62 (1814/15) 
1851 - 1817
1861 - 1815
