When did Elijah and Sarah marry?
« on: Sunday 24 May 20 10:24 BST (UK) »
I believe that Elijah Whittuck OR Whittick married Sarah Speedy about 1867 in or near Bath.
They had at least 2 children that I have information about; Elizabeth Whittick married William Trebble and both died 1951 in Bath Avon.

Can anyone find the marriage for Elijah and Sarah or if they ever married?

Morning. Have you found them showing as married on any census - given the time frame you suspect, say the 1871 or 1881? On Elizabeth's marriage certificate, does it state Elijah is her father and is he stated as alive or dead when that marriage took place - you don't say the date for that one.

On the 1881 they are at Lyncombe and Widcombe Somerset, with children Frederick (6), James (5) and Elizabeth (3). (RG11/2435 pg37 &38) The children's birth registrations (on the GRO) all have mother's maiden name SPEEDY.

Elijah and Sarah say they are married on the census, but that doesn't necessarily mean they are.  :-\

Fred WHITTICK birth registered Bath (5c/622) in Dec qtr 1874. Looks like he and Elizabeth were baptised together 29 Nov 1877 at Widcombe (parents Elijah, labourer, and Sarah), though why James wasn't baptised at the same time, I'm not sure?

Modified to add:
James baptised 26 June 1879 at Widcombe, same details as above.
