St Swithin Worcester marriage register
« on: Wednesday 16 January 19 15:16 GMT (UK) »
Hello
If anyone has access to St Swithin Worcester marriage register in 1820, would they do a quick look up for me please?
I have a marriage 22 May 1820 between William Holloway and Hannah Welch and would like to know names of parents,witnesses etc?
Thanks
Richard

I note the marriage you refer to but cannot oblige with the details you require, however as far as I can see they are the only two of those names with a marriage record in Worcestershire but I may be wrong

William Holloway to Hannah Welch 22/05/1820 Saint Swithin,Worcester

A William & Hannah are on the 1841 & 1851 census with their son Benjamin who is married by 1851 below.

1851 Brisnall fields ?      Warley Wigorn Hales Owen Worcestershire
William Holloway    64   Harborne, Worcestershire (Noted as Staffs on census)
Hannah Holloway    56   Halesowen
Benjamin Holloway    25   Ditto
Mary Holloway    27   Ditto

Benjamin Holloway was baptised 22 May 1825 St. John, Halesowen
Unfortunately there were two other baptisms in Worcester parents William & Hannah, so Iím not sure if connected to the above and no clear trace after at this time. No William or Hannah on Worcester census.

William Hollaway 12 Jan 1823 Saint Martin, Worcester
Caroline Holloway25 Mar 1827 Saint Martin, Worcester

Likely baptisms for those on the 1851 census

William Holloway 24 Dec 1786 Harborne St. Peter, parents Benjamin & Mary
Hannah Welch 6 Aug 1797 Pedmore, Worcestershire, parents Richard & Sarah (The only Hannah in Worcs)

Thank you Colin for the time you've spent here.

I believe the William and Caroline you have are this couple's children.
But I'm hoping to get a clue as to the husband's father if his name was on their Marriage record.

Regards
Richard

Fathers names and occupations are not included on marriage certificates until mid 1837.  He may of course have been a witness to the marriage but there would be nothing showing as to the relationship to the groom

Hi Richard, I thought that was likelihood. There is a possible burial for Hannah which could point to the baptism at Pedmore.

Hannah Holloway Birth 1797 Death about 1828
Burial Place:   Worcester, Worcestershire,

No clear trace of William on census returns but two possible re-marriages, both seem unlikely.

William Holloway to Eleanor Scoffield
Marriage 5 Oct 1829 Ribbesford, Worcester

Or to Susannah Rudge 9 Feb 1829 Bromsgrove

I did find William junior, also possible marriages for Caroline, I suspect you did too.
