I've not tried to find out yet how the family next door might be related.

Hello,

James & Betty had a son James baptised 18 Nov 1821 at Almondbury.

I have found two married in 1841 but looking for a death in RD Huddersfield to 1851 for a James I can see a total of 12. :eek: It's possible neither of these is my James.

I'm having trouble finding the marriage to Martha, even allowing for James to be 4 years older than indicated and married at 17.

Found a possible although it's not Mary Ann.

I was looking to see if Mary's name was there. I've started looking to see how the family next door might be related.

I found the baptism of a different Alfred. Can't find Rebecca or Mary.

I can't find the marriage for that James & Mary that would be about 1828.

While looking for your Armitages, I found two Barnoclough children with Frances (Francis) and Betty Armitage as grandparents. Their abode is Newsom and with your Barroclough connection I wondered if you had this already or had no Barroclough/Armitage connection?? I can give you details if you want them.

Barbara
 
Hello Barbara,

I do have a Barraclough/Armitage connection but both families names are very common in the area around of Huddersfield so it's possible they could be related and equally possible they are not.

Please give me the details because it is Newsom and I'll see where it takes me.

Regards,

Dave
 
My apologies Dave, there is only one. It is repeated in the index.

Date and place fit but the names are not Francis & Betty. :eek:

Unless Francis/Frances is a mistranscription of James.
 
Just setting the cat amongst the pigeons!

You are so right, it was mistranscribed. Looks nothing like Frances.

This is why the experts say always look at the original.:eek:

I am trying to send it to you but with difficulty.

Barbara
 
Hello Barbara,

You had me worried for about 5 seconds. :2fun:

Everything else fits so it had to be James.

Regards,

Dave
