Ernest Harper (born 1875 Burslem, Sheffield) married Florence Birkinshaw (born 1877 Burslem) I don't have anything more for Ernest Harper's Dad apart from his name was Robert Harper and he was born in 1852 and died in 1893. I do know he married Martha Turner. But that is where it stops. Some help to get further information on any of the above would be appreciated. I am Ernest Harpers Great Great Grandaughter.

I can find no birth for an Ernest Harper 1873 - 1877 with mother's maiden name Turner.

Marriages Mar Qtr 1873
HARPER Robert - Wortley 9c 233
TURNER Martha - Wortley 9c 233

EDIT: See post #8.

HARPER, ERNEST - WRIGHT

If Bedford is correct in the census then there are at least two to sort out.

HARPER, ROBERT - HULL
GRO Reference: 1851 S Quarter in BEDFORD Volume 06 Page 24
HARPER, ROBERT - BAINES
GRO Reference: 1851 D Quarter in BEDFORD Volume 06 Page 27

Not all births were registered and not all are on GRO so may be more than those two to check.

Thank you again, I will also look into this, there isn't anyone else in my family who is doing the family tree or knows anything of this, so I am doing a lot of searching. Thanks again.

Robert Harper married Martha Wright in Bradfield 12 March 1873. They were both single. Witnesses were Joe Wright and Mary Crookes. Robert's father was Jacob Harper, a brick burner and Martha's was John Wright, a cutler.
