Marriage at St James Trowbridge 1830
« on: Saturday 25 January 20 21:14 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone help with marriage details for a Mary or Margaret marrying at this church in this year? In 1861 she was living with a Samuel Franklin in Islington and they both moved into the workhouse in November 1861. They were not married but she used the name Franklin. There was a child William aged 12 in 1861. They are not on the 1861 census. The information comes from the workhouse admission details but unfortunately the writing is indistinct so I have no married name for her but could be LANE or DANE. If there is a transcript available for these marriages, I would go through it to look for a match.

Can you confirm which census you found them on as you appear to give 1861 details then say they are not on the 1861.  I canít find an 1861 entry as you donít give any birthyears or birthplaces

How have you arrived at 1830 St James?

The 1861 information comes from the admission records on their admission to Pancras workhouse, Nov 21, 1861; not from the census. That says that she married in 1830 Trowbridge while showing that Samuel married in 1829 in London to Mary Eliza Wood.  Samuel baptised in 1811 (born1808) in St James, Trowbridge, base born to Elizabeth.

Per 1829 marriage entry - he was Samuel Tanner Franklin.  A William C or E Wood was one of the witnesses - marriage was 25.10.1829 Christ Church, City of London

What birthplace is given for the 12yr old William you mention?  If William was their son and if his birth was registered it could be looked up to get her maiden name.  If he was Samuel & Mary Eliza's son then ................

Was Samuel a mason on the admission records?

Hi

There is a marriage of a George Franklin to  Mary Gale on 17th Jan 1831 at St James Southbroom (not sure if that is near Trowbridge).   
I saw your previous posts re Clayton Street.  My family also lived on Clayton Street in Islington.  They originated in Wiltshire and Somerset and are called Marsh.  There are other names in the mix - Keeley, Webb, Sweeting, Gardiner. 
Did young William have a surname?

Cheers

The Samuel Franklin/Mary Deacon Marriage in Trowbridge has Samuel a Groom and a Widower.  Also one of the witnesses is a William Franklin.

We are not looking for a Franklin marriage in Trowbridge.  Mary/Margaret was only known as Franklin but her name on the admission records was her actual married name.  So we are looking for a marriage in Trowbridge in 1830 only for somebody called Mary or Margaret who married somebody whose name could be Lane/Dane or similar
