William Chambers
« on: Monday 26 October 20 16:18 GMT (UK) »
I am looking to find an occupation for my great great great grandfather William Chambers.  His daughter Elizabeth Chambers married Thomas Lumley in Tynemouth in 1846.  I am having no luck finding out which of the William Chambers on the 1841 census could be mine so I thought if I could find his occupation from his daughter Elizabeths marriage certificate it would give me a clue to finding him on the census records.  I have the marriage banns but it doesnt give his occupation.  I would appreciate any help anyone can give me.

One of the witnesses was Thomas Chambers - did any of the William Chambers possibilities in the 1841 have a son Thomas?

No Thomas mentioned, so either he is not Elizabeth's brother but some other member of the family, or he was elsewhere at the time.

Where did you find that her father was William if he was not named on the marriage to Thomas Lumley  :-\

I looked at the original image for this marriage and the form looked more like a pre-1837 certificate.  No occupations and no fathers names.

Below is the GRO ref from freebmd

Thomas is supposed to be married to an Elizabeth.

In theory the 1851 should have a Thomas and Elizabeth not Margaret.

Edit:  Sorry didn't check the census info  ::)  ::)

So that does look right.
