Hi I ave been looking for ages for a marriage that doesn't appear to exist. [perhaps it doesn't] I think they married sometime between 1851[after census] and 1854 their first child was born in 1854 they were from Northumberland. I did send for a cert for an Isabella Beattie of Belford married 1853, I thought she perhaps was a widow when she married Henry, but her fathers name and occupation did not match. Someone did suggest maybe it could be a border marriage, in which case I would never find it. I have heard that there are some missing marriages that for some reason never went into the indexes, and I wonder could it be that? any help/suggestions gratefully received.
