George Wood and Pheobe Handsworth
« on: Friday 09 April 21 16:57 BST (UK) »
Hi All
           I am unable to find a marriage of George Wood and Pheobe Richards.
           The 1891 census gives George's age  48 born Tamworth
                                             Pheobe's age 49 born Bilston
                                             Elizabeth daughter age 20 born Birmingham
                                             Eliza              "         "  17    "         "
                                             Thomas   son age 10 who is my grandfather I have his birth certificate which gives his mothers maiden name as Richards.
            If anyone can help me find this marriage I would appreciate it.
                                               Carol

According to entry on Family Search,  both aged 25, so a reasonable match. Phoebe described as "single."

1841.
Possibly Phoebe and family:-
John Richards 52
Elizth Richards  46
Richard Richards  9
Elizth Richards  7
PHOBE Richards  3
Henry Brant 16.
All born Staffordshire. Living High Street, Wolverhampton.
Ref  HO107. 1001/12. Page 17 (Family Search).

It looks as if she is recorded at two separate addresses in 1851, but no sign of her marriage!
