Hi Julie, Alfred Henry DID marry Emma Kitson. They married abt. 1891 but I'm not sure where. Before that however its very unclear. We have no documents whatsoever about him, only word of mouth stuff passed down. He may have been known by Henry but was always called Alfred by my mothers family. He was my great grandfather. We believed that he was born 1868/69 but lizannes date of 1866 COULD be right.
I have seen Matthew and Elizabeth Peacock' s headstone at Trimdon (who were supposed to be his parents) Matthew died June 8th 1888 so lizannes date was spot on. He died aged 69. His wife Elizabeth died Nov. 10th 1914 aged 96. So they must have been born abt. 1819 & 1818. My mother thinks that Matthews father was called Christopher but she's not 100%. We don't know Elizabeths maiden name.I have no idea where they were born, only that they lived at Trimdon and had some business properties there.
We think that there was another daughter as well as Elizabeth but not too sure about that, her name may have been Margaret but sometimes called Polly. Very sketchy information I know but my mum said that it was always rumoured that he was one of the daughters children but was brought up as a brother.
