Trying to find birth and parents please for Mary who married Alfred WARD.

Was her father a THOMPSON but did she take the TURNBULL name?

I could have the wrong Mary in the census. Is this her parents marriage?

Marriages Sep 1850
THOMPSON Mary Newcastle T 25 342
TURNBULL James Newcastle T 25 342

Regards,

Dave

Back to this one. Ignoring the two census:

Marriages Sep 1874
Ward Alfred Stockport 8a 131
Turnbull Mary Thompson Stockport 8a 131


Assisted to Qld.
Sailed London 19th July Arrived Brisbane 30th October 1878
Captain Cooper Dr Evans Matron Mrs McKiddie
WARD, Alfred 29 Scottish Admiral 30 Oct 1878 122 18478 Z1959 M1698
WARD Mary 24
WARD Joseph 3
WARD Hannah Inf

Mary was born abt 1854 from age in shipping record. Her death reg in Australia only lists her mother as Mary. That may or may not be correct if the informant didn't know her father's name. Died 1889 in NSW but no age at death and can't find a death notice or burial record. The reg lists Mary's initials as T. G. T = Thompson but I don't know what the G is for. I don't have a death yet for Alfred as there are several possibles.


Trying to find birth and parents for Mary who married Alfred WARD.

Thanks,

Dave

Many thanks dave.

That's a help knowing father is Joseph.

The next thing I'm wondering about the 1861 census in post #1 if Mary's middle name has been transcribed as her surname and that James is Joseph's brother possibly.

Hello Judy,

Do you mean a site similar to this one or you mean the Turnbull Clan site?

I have googled and did find some info but nothing that resolved all the issues.

One question I would like resolved and that is the census in post #1 the right one with an error in it?

After one more post your user name turns green and the Private Message system will become available to you.

Ok, thanks.

No sign of a Mary TURNBULL born 1849 - 1857 with father = Joseph or any father and who married Affred WARD. I can see no Alfred WARD in the index.

There are several sites and I've searched TCA so far.

Nothing is adding up.

This is the only Mary 1852 - 1857 ruling out all those with middle names not Thompson and it's not Stepney:

Births Sep Qtr 1853
TURNBULL Mary Shoreditch 1c 174


I can find no Alfred WARD 1842 -1855 who fits born Hyde/Stockport unless it's this one:

Births Sep Qtr 1852
Ward Alfred Ashton under Lyne 8d 410

I can't find a tree for Alfred with parents Joseph & Hannah.

I can't find a tree with Mary.

Nothing is falling into place.

I'm fairly sure Ashton or part of it used to be in Cheshire, it's only about 5 miles N of Hyde.

Alfred's mother came from Denton, which is only 2 miles W of Hyde.
