Glebe Stree Burmantofts Leeds


Valued Member
Is anyone a bit of an expert on Leeds Yorkshire please?

My Gt Gt Grandmother Martha Coultas was married from a house in Glebe St Leeds on 31 December 1871, although she lived in Bradford. She married James Wells whose address on the marriage certificate was also Glebe St Leeds (what was going on there?) and he also lived and worked in Bradford. Both of them were with respective parents in the 1871 census and both in Bradford.

James brother Henry married Martha's sister Sarah and they lost 3 babies whose death certificates were registered in Leeds, although they also both lived in Bradford. One little boy died of complications from Spina Bifida and he died age 1 month at 12 Glebe Street Leeds. Can anyone pour any light on why they would be in Leeds at these important times? I can't find a single relative who lived there at the time. I've found the house on Google maps and it just seems to be a residence, so I'm really puzzled as to why they would all go to Leeds for major life events!!!! It's so frustrating!
