George Lee - Sheffield Marriage


Right Im having difficulty trying to find who George Lee married for his second wife, who just happens to be the mother of my relative - typical.

Ok by 1851 he has one child and is a widow aged 22. He was born in Chesterfield. By 1861 he has 4 children and a new wife, who he married in 1858 in Chesterfield. His youngest child is by this new wife, who is only 18. This child was born in Chesterfield.

Ok it is the middle 2 children that concern me. They are Alfred born 1855 and Sydney born 1856 both in Darnall, Sheffield. Sometime between Sydney being born and the marriage to his 3rd wife in 1858 his second wife died.

What I am trying to find is the name of George Lee's 2nd wife, the mother of Alfred and Sydney. I am either after a marriage of George Lee (father Richard Lee, farm labourer) to an unknown person, or the christening details of Alfred and Sydney Lee with father George Lee and mother unknown.

I have checked LDS, FreeBMD (which has a couple of George Lees which would fit the bill but no proof).

The two churches that I think could hold these records are :
Holy Trinity, Darnall, Sheffield, parish 28 OR
Chapel of Ease (Christ Church) Attercliffe, Sheffield parish 28

This would help me to solve a puzzle, who Alfred's mum was! I know the easiest thing would be for me to send for one of the children's birth certificates but at the moment finances prevent me from doing this. Eventually I will have to, but at the moment the pile of certificates I need is growing!!

Hope someone can help me with this puzzle. Thanks
