The Leeds Mercury (Leeds, England), Saturday, April 25, 1835; Issue 3487.
Same day, at St. Paul's Church, Huddersfield, by the Rev. J. C. Franks, Mr. John Hirst Kilner, eldest son of Mr. Thomas Kilner, of Carr House, to Sarah, daughter of the late Mr. Thomas Dransfield, of Huddersfield.

Witnesses thanks. Looks like three or four witnesses but may not be possible to read them all.


Thanks gibbo.

I agree with that.

I looks like two names on each row.

Looks to be William F? ... under John.
Thanks Barbara.

Could be William Franks. Probably no hope with the other two names. I've tried various ways of enhancing the image and no luck with the second name on each row as they remain faint.
Think the faint is more likely occupation rather than names or addresses Apologies just looked at last one and four names!
