Marriage Register
St Helen Sandal
Yorkshire
3rd Aug 1845
Richard LEE of full age Bachelor Wool Comber of Dirtcar Father = Benjamin LEE Clothier
Jane RAMSDEN full age Spinster of Dirtcar Father = John DOBSON Mechanic
Both bride and groom made their marks
Witnesses were William RAMSDEN and Harriet BOOTH

1851
HO107 Piece 2328 Folio 136 Page 17
Civil Parish: Alverthorpe with Thornes
County: Yorkshire (West Riding)
Registration District: Wakefield
ED:
Jane Lee Head Widow 24 Laundress Wakefield Yorkshire
William Lee son 4 Wakefield Yorkshire
John Ramsden Lee son 2 Wakefield Yorkshire
Harriett Booth Visitor Unm 21 Wakefield Yorkshire

Looking for John Dobson, Jane Ramsden, Harriet Booth and William Ramsden in 1841. I can't find any of them so far. All the hits are in East Riding.

If Jane was a spinster and her father was Dobson then was her mother's name Ramsden? I can't work out how William Ramsden and Harriet Booth fit in. Could Jane and Harriet be sisters somehow?

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks Emeltee.

Witnesses William Ramsden could be a brother and Harriet a friend/neighbour.

Wakefield fits.

Did Mary Ramsden marry John Dobson?

It would be an error then on the marriage with father as John Ramsden. An assumption perhaps if the reply was 'John' to question of father's name.

The Dobsons all seem to be in East Riding.

One is a mechanic and the other a clothier ??

Yes. Change a mechanic to a clothier. ?

Son John Ramsden Lee as a 'grandson' of James Askham. Did Mary Ramsden marry James Askham? Age fits. - 40 in 1841 and 50 in 1851 b. Wakefield.
