Where was this marriage and who witnessed it?
« on: Wednesday 31 March 21 14:25 BST (UK) »
I've got an 1856 marriage certificate for Henry Haigh and Emma Harrison.  I cannot decipher where the marriage took place.  The index record says Yorkshire West Riding and Bradford and sub-registration of 9b which could be Bowling, Bradford Central, Bradford East, Bradford North, Bradford South, Bradford West, Calverley, Cleckheaton, Drighlington, Horton, Idle, Little Horton, Manningham, North Bierley, Pudsey, St. Lukes, Shipley, Thornton, Wilsden.

I'd also like to identify the witnesses (there seem to be a lot) although I think I can make out Henry Harrison, Eliza Harrison, Anne Dorothy Haigh and Edward Harrison.

Thank you!

I was just about to suggest the same as Carol - Ainderby Steeple. Church is St Helens.

Emma's residence looks like "Morton" - there are a few Mortons In Yorkshire, but I wonder if this might be the one:

"MORTON UPON SWALE, in the parish of Ainderby Steeple, wapentake of Gilling East and liberty of Richmondshire; mile WSW. of Ainderby Steeple, 4 miles WSW. of Northallerton. Population, 210." (from Genuki)
