John & Sarah FOSTER of HUNSLET, YORKSHIRE
« on: Monday 11 January 21 01:19 GMT (UK) »
Hi List,  looking for a marriage of the above couple.  1841 Census they are (BIC) and 1851 Census both born in Hunslet - (the same for their kids). 

The information on a death for a Frederick Foster in Australia in 1903 has his parents as being John Foster & Fanny Greenwood* (*Fanny or Frances was the name of his wife's mother - Frances Hawkins/Dixon/Dickson - but it's the Greenwood name that might hold a clue......could it have been Sarah Greenwood?).  I cannot find any marriages in Hunslet for that time frame (eg 1810-1814?). 

The first child Mary Foster was baptised in 1815 at St Mary's in Hunslet, and as both John & Sarah said they were born in Hunslet....I'm assuming they married there?.

Would anyone know if there is marriage information for that time still available for Hunslet or not please. 

Kind regards

I've just done a quick check -

FindMyPast don't have any BT's for St Mary, Hunslet marriages
Ancestry marriage records for St Mary, Hunslet start 1837.

However, my WYAS Collection Guide states that St Mary, Hunslet marriages start 1717.

Hi BumbleB

There was some marriages for early 1700's to 1750's I think on the Dusty Docs, but nothing after that date. 

Not sure what the WYAS collection is?

It's starting to look as though they might not exist or would St Mary's Church (has the church survived?) hold any registers?

Regards

Good morning, Webby.
Only the tower of St Mary's survives. The rest of the Church was demolished before 1975.

Oh! What a tangled web we perceive,

Hi Stefan

Thanks for that info...well that answers my question on whether the church would hold any records!!. :(

I've written to the WYAS asking whether they hold the marriages for that time or not.  Waiting to hear back.

Regards
