If you need anything more on Daniel and Sarah you would be better off posting a new thread in the English forum.

Hi there

Does anyone have any information on a magaret leader married to Samuel John tranter please I have come to a stand still on my family tree with margaret leader ��


Hi Nicole
I think I may have an answer. this is what I think..

Samuel John Tranter born 1900 M'boro had siblings Edith Annie 1898, Miriam 1902, Harry 1904, Lillian 1908 and Ethel May 1910.
his parents were James Tranter born 1875 M'boro and Margaret Jane Leadley born 1877 M'boro, - they married Sep qtr 1897 M'boro.

James father was Samuel 1853 Brierley Hill Staffs who in 1911 had been married to Hannah Elizabeth Leadley 1855 Whitby for 10 years (dec qtr 1900) but had no children. I think they had been living as man and wife for some time before this. Sam married Rachael Skelton in Stockton dec qtr 1871 who was the mother of James. James aged 6 was living with his grandparents in 1881, William Henry 1826 Plymouth and Harriett 1829 Delph

Deaths Mar 1884
Tranter Rachel 29 Middlesbro' 9d 370

William Henry married Harriet. His parents were George 1806 and Elizabeth 1811

Marriages Dec 1845
ROGERS Harriet Dudley 18 389
TRANTER William Henry Dudley 18 389

Samuel John 1900 married Margaret Bagley in 1920 and had son Samuel J in 1941 who married Rita Davies in 1961, all in M'boro.

Samuel and Rita had daughter

Births Mar 1966

I hope this is the right family. It all seems to fit but....

It looks as if the Margaret Jane Leadley born 1877 M'boro, married to James Tranter, was the daughter of Hannah Elizabeth 1856 Whitby who's 2nd marriage was to James's father Samuel. Hannah nee Outhwaite 1st husband was James Leadley 1856 Whitby

Marriages Sep 1874

LEADLEY James Stockton 10a 120
Outhwaite Hannah Elizabeth


Deaths Sep 1900

Leadley James A 44 Middlesbro' 9d 405

As mentioned before, I believe Hannah had been living with Samuel before they got married in Dec qtr 1900. The death of James Leadley in sep qtr 1900 made the marriage possible


Marriages Dec 1849

Anderson Margaret Whitby 24 719
Leadley Isaac Whitby 24 719

Hi thanks everyone for helping me lots of that information is a help and some I already have on my tree .
Dave yes that is correct families .
Sharon tranter is my mother and Rita is my gran ?
It is just the Daniel tranter 1780 that I can not get any further with his parents etc ...

Also I Jane checked my tree and Samuel John tranter from 1900 married Margaret bagley I think I'd said leader but I think that is someone further down my tree married to someone else .
Sorry I'm new to it all so just learning it's very mind boggling sometimes ?
