Looking for the marriage in about 1827 in Rothwell, Yorkshire between Joseph Drake and Hannah. It is not coming up in the Yorkshire Parish and Probate Records and it is too early for the England and Wales Marriage Index.

Joseph and Hannah Drake ultimately had 4 children Mary, Ellen, Martha and William

Grateful for any information or help to point in the right direction.:)

Thanks

Hi sparklebear1

It is possible they didnt get married in Rothwell.

On the IGI a Joseph Drak married a Hannah Smith at St Peter Leeds on the 16th May 1826 and another Jospeh Drake married a Hannah Hiley on the 25th August 1828 at St Peter, Leeds.

The best thing to do would be to check any births for the couple after July 1837 and send off for the birth cert in order to get Hannah's maiden name.
