Help with beginners brick wall: Finding Thomas Jackson
« on: Tuesday 08 September 20 22:46 BST (UK) »
Hello,

I'm struggling to find information on Thomas Jackson- I'd like to find his birth date and to trace him on the census records. The info I have is:

From marriage certificate
* DOB about 1878
*Married 26/12/1901 to Mary Ellen Brown in Parish of St Judes  Manchester (Ancoats)
Address at time of marriage 104 Mill St   Father John Jackson - deceased by 1901

From death certificate
* died 6/61947

My Census Searches
* 1911 census can find Mary Ellen but not Thomas  - note they were still married when Mary Ellen died in 1937
* 1901 census - can't find him at any Mill St address
* 1881 and 1891 census - found a possible match (Cholton ED 22, Piece 3899, Folio 18, Page 29)
Thomas Jackson born 1878 (Manchester) toohn Jackson aged 35 Sarah Jackson aged 34

Birth Registrations
 A search of the GRO for 1878 gave me 2 possible matches
* Thomas Jackson District Manchester Vol 8d P228 Mother Maiden name Downey
* Thomas Jackson District Cholton Vol 8c P709 Mother Maiden name Thompson

However I can't seem to find a marriage which relates to John Jackson  with a Downey or Thompson

So what should I do next to try and identify who Thomas mother was and when was he born

Thank you
Jackson

What was his and his father's occupations from the marriage certificate?

Have you found him in 1939?

If you can find him on 1939 register it should give you his date of birth. Also as it says about 1878 on marriage certificate, he could have been born in 1877

Thomas  and his father were both labourers

Unfortunately I can't find a good match on the 1939 register either

Thomas died in Boundary Park Generall hospital in Oldham and the informant was his eldest daughter Edith Jackson

I can find some Mary Hannah Jackson but none that I can directly tie in with either a John Jackson or a Thomas Jackson
