Hello cp,

Richard ASKHAM b. 1800 Hemsworth - gardiner - have death certificate.

Mary THOMPSON b. 12 Aug 1798 Rothwell - school teacher - have burial.

First daughter Mary Elizabeth (called Elizabeth) born 1834 Rothwell

Possible although a bit early if Elizabeth was the first. I think Leeds is too far away, and why Leeds when neither were born near Leeds. ???

Groom: John Richardson Askham
Bride: Mary Thompson
Date: 26 Oct 1830
Place: St. Peters, Leeds, Yorkshire

About a dozen John ASKAM / ASKHAMs born in Yorkshire 1802 +/- 10

Need to eliminate John Richardson ASKHAM somehow. Won't be that easy because ASKHAM and THOMPSON are both common names in WRY.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave

Nothing in papers of the marriage dated 26th Oct 1830 for a John Richardson ASKHAM.

Found a death, daughter of Richard ASKHAM.

The Huddersfield Chronicle and West Yorkshire Advertiser (West Yorkshire, England), Saturday, November 07, 1857; pg. 8; Issue 398. 19th Century British Library Newspapers: Part II.
DEATH
On the 29th ult., aged 22, Eliza Ann, daughter of the late Mr. Richard Askham, Swan-lane, Lockwood.

cheers

Hello cp,

I just looked at Hugh Wallis' middle name site and found two interesting ones:

6 May 1810 Mary Richardson T THOMPSON 6 MAY 1810 Heslington - Henry THOMPSON & Mary RICHARDSON


3 Mar 1836 Matthew Richardson Askham PINDER Saint Peter, Leeds - mother Hannah PINDER


Only the marriage listed for John Richardson ASKHAM. Curious.

Regards,

Dave

Hello cp,

Thank you.

That's their 2nd child. A bit confusing with Mary Elizabeth called Elizabeth and Eliza Ann called Eliza.


So no sign of a birth/baptism or a death anywhere in England for John ASKHAM with middle name Richardson.

Regards,

Dave

Hello cp,

I suppose there is one option. Get a copy of Mary's death certificate:


Died 19 May 1861

Deaths Jun 1861
Askham Mary Huddersfield 9a 259

There is a burial on 22nd May 1861 at Lockwood for Mary ASKHAM, born 1799.


Regards,

Dave

Hello cp,

Looking at the births for a John ASKHAM & Mary there are several with father = John Watey ASKHAM and others way too early and way too late and none near Rothwell, Wakefield, Lockwood, Huddersfield...

I now wonder if John R & Mary had any children.

I can't find a burial for a John R.

Regards,

Dave
