Hello,

I'm puzzled by this:

Cheshire Marriage indexes for the years: 1843
Surname Forename(s) Surname Forename(s) Church / Register Office Registers At Reference
ANGEL Thomas CLEMENTS Mary Ashton under Lyne Civil Marriage Tameside RM/3/66


Marriages Sep 1843
ANGEL Thomas Ashton &c 20 79
CLEMENTS Mary Ashton &c 20 79

Ashton under Lyne - Lancashire 1837 - 1848 so why Cheshire?


Send this Application to:
MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE £ 9.00 Superintendent Registrar, The Register Office, Dukinfield Town Hall, King Street, Dukinfield, Cheshire, SK16 4LA, UK
Or GRO ?

The other strange thing is that a daughter has a middle name of Clarendon and the daughters death certificate just received has her mother's maiden name as CLARENDON.

Regards,

Dave

Historically Ashton under Lyme was in Lancashire Dave but came under Greater Manchester (which borders with Cheshire) after the 1972 re-bordering of counties.
Probably best ordering from GRO at Southport rather than be redirected :)

Didn't locate the marriage in Lancs records, by the way

Thanks Woody,

Bit curious because I was told it was at Stockport but shows as Ashton under Lyne on the Cheshire BMD. And it says the record is held at Tameside.

Oh. http://www.tameside.gov.uk/ ;)

Not a church marriage.

A brother of my gg grandfather.

Quite curious. They were both born in Paisley but somehow ended up in Ashton under Lyne where they had two children before the family returned to Paisley where one was born 4 Jan 1855. Yes, I have a copy of that 1855 one. :D

:2fun:

Well his father, also Thomas was born in Devon. He was in the 40th Reg of Foot stationed in Scotland where he married in Paisley. That's one more brick wall. Can't find where he was born in Devon or be sure about his parents. Might have to revisit that one day. ;)


On the Waterloo Medal Roll - 1st Battalion 40th Regiment of Foot - Captain R. P. Stewart's Company.

V Vimiera ** 2nd Brigade: General Ronald Ferguson included 40th
T Talavera ** 4th Division Sir Alexander Campbell - Kemmiss' Brigade included 1/40th
B Busaco ** 4th Division: Major General Lowry Cole 2nd Brigade: commanded by Colonel Kemmis: included 1st/40th
B Badajoz ** 4th Division: Major General Lowry Cole - probably included 40th
S Salamanca ** included 40th
V Vitoria ** 4th Division included 40th

Yes, turning into a speciality for Gibbo. :2fun:

Well might prove difficult with half my convicts being from Ireland and not convicted in England. :eek:
