Sarah Skelton/Shelton/Sheldon 1863 Bolton
« on: Thursday 30 December 21 12:55 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to find a birth registration for a Sarah Skelton/Shelton/Sheldon who married a Frank Etherington on December 25 1888 at St John the Evangelist Church, Walworth.  On Sarah's marriage certificate she gives her age as 26 and her father John Skelton (deceased).  Sarah Etherington consistently gives her birthplace as Bolton, Lancashire although her birth year does range from 1863 to 1865.  I am trying to find a birth record for Sarah but am struggling to find one.

I do have a certificate for a Sarah Ann Shelton registered in Salford, January 1864 but this is not the correct one.  The father listed on this is Alfred and the mother Sarah Jane, formerly Smith.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Regards Kaybron

Have you found her in 1871 or 1881?

Thank you CaroleW and PaulineJ for your replies.

No, I have not been able to find Sarah in the 1871 and 1881 Census.  I have only been able to find her after her marriage. 

I have looked at the witnesses names but they do not appear to be related to Frank.  I do not know if they are related to Sarah because I only have the details that are on her marriage certificate and the Census material after her marriage to Frank in 1888.  I am not able to find a birth record or an 1871 and 1881 Census entry for Sarah so am not able to determine parents and siblings for her.

I have not followed up the address that Sarah and Frank are at when married.
