Tellow or Tetlow, also what is the extra word?
« on: Thursday 23 September 21 23:40 BST (UK) »
Hello,

I am looking at a marriage record for the 11 May 1708 for John Pickles and Susan Somebody. It's either Tellow or Tetlow, but I'm not sure.

Also, what is the word at the end of the line? The one that looks a bit like nozzle?

Thank you
;D Doing my best, but frequently wrong ;D
:-* My thanks to everyone who helps me, you are all marvellous :-*

Just as Jo: indicates a contraction of John or often Joseph, the brideís name written as Susan: might indicate a contraction of Susanna/Susannah, and Iíd say her surname is Tetlow.

Also, what is the word at the end of the line? The one that looks a bit like nozzle?

Pretty sure the word at the end is North but it also has the colon to indictate a contraction. Looking at the other entries it refers to her parish and further down the page I see someone is from South. An educated guess Ö this refers to North Halifax and South Halifax (perhaps as per the later 1837 Registration Districts Halifax North and Halifax South?)

I think it's Tetlow, and  agree with North.  There was no mention of Tetlow and just a one liner suggesting North  ::)

If it's Halifax and you're seeing North: and South: then I'd suggest these are Northowram and Southowram.

NB - the parish is Halifax, and these are townships within it. Some (Most? All?) townships had their own registers, but entries are usually found in the parish church registers as well.
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Bingley, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

Ann Bard has totally change her reply since I last read it.

Add _ In the original, here was no mention of Tetlow and just a one liner suggesting North  ::)

It is usual (and polite) to indicate the change.

Looking at the other entries it refers to her parish and further down the page I see someone is from South. An educated guess Ö this refers to North Halifax and South Halifax (perhaps as per the later 1837 Registration Districts Halifax North and Halifax South?)

I've also now verified what I'd thought to be the case, that the registration district was only ever called Halifax, though there were sub-districts called Halifax North and Halifax South. See

https://www.ukbmd.org.uk/reg/districts/halifax.html

In case that seems fussy and pedantic (as with my comment on the phrase "Looking at the other entries it refers to her parish"), I believe it's important to use the correct terminology wherever possible. Minor inaccuracies can escalate into major misunderstandings and send fellow researchers, and those who are just trying to offer an occasional helping hand, off on all kinds of wild goose chase.

Apologies Gadget, new to the forum and just getting the hang of the etiquette. I posted my comment re. North, reopened the post immediately to modify it when I realised I could find the whole page of the register pictured, and then kept fiddling with my answer (bad form, got it!) and so didnít see your reply. Wonít do it again.

Of course, and apologies for any confusion, sloppiness on my part, mea culpa.

I'm pretty sure that North: = Northowram, South: = Southowram, Skirc:/Skir: = Skircoat, Hall: = Hallifax (as shown on some of the entries with this spelling of Halifax), Oven: = Ovenden.
