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.
