1844 marriage - deciphering name of barracks
« on: Tuesday 05 March 19 11:30 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I have a marriage document from 1844 in Manchester for William Robert Whitten and Mary Waterhouse. I believe his rank or profession is listed as 'Sargeant' or am I mistaken? In addition, his residence at the time of marriage - '___ Barracks'? It looks like it might start 'Ti...'
Any help is really appreciated.

Tib St(reet) Barracks

There are several newspaper articles around that time about the Tib St Barracks and 15th Infantry

It looks like Sargeant to me.

Oh wow, 'Tib St' it is. That makes me feel a little better because I could not make any sense of it as a single word.

Thanks for the help!

I thought it was "Tibet" but seemed a bit far afield  :-[
