English marriage


I'm trying to find the marriage about 1892 of Annie BARRACLOUGH to Thomas KAYE. So far I can't find it anywhere in England. I've tried KAY and KAYE and with and without Tom or Thomas with Ann or Annie or without given name.

KAYE, Tom Herbert Head Married M 44 1867 Accountant Huddersfield Yorkshire
KAYE, Annie Wife F 39 1872 Huddersfield Yorkshire



Hi Dave,

The Tom Herbert marriage in Huddersfield in 1891 looks like the right one. Even though Annie isnt on the index there is a Annie Barraclough vol 9a page 555 district Huddersfield, Dec 1/4, year 1891.
Hello Julie,

Thanks. :) The page number on the original image for Tom is 555 - the tops are flat so all three are a 5 and none of them are a 6. And one male missing on the index with Annie.


Hi Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thanks for telling me the NLA had access to The Gale Collection. What a great site and so much easier to use than NLA's Trove. I love being able to choose only the Births, Marriages & Deaths section of the page.

I didn't find either marriage. :(


Hi Dave

Fantastic hey :)

19th Century British Library Newspapers PART 2 was added back in May.

You might have some luck with the KILNER family. It was before May when we last visited them.

I've got my page to search all rather than individual papers.
British Newspapers 1600-1900
17-18th Century Burney Collection Newspapers
19th Century British Library Newspapers
19th Century British Library Newspapers Part 2

I rarely use this paper but keep your eye on (19th Century UK Periodicals) which has The Friend of India (Calcutta, India). re the REVETT name.

Hello crankypants,

Yes, fantastic. :D

Yes, I tried individual and all depending what I was looking for.

I noticed a few on the hit list came up with errors when you clicked on them but if you view the page you can find what you searched for. I prefer the green highlight too.

Ok, one day I'll go through the KILNERS and the HIRST connected to them.
