Can't that marriage be found ? The date is not on FMP that I can see.

Looking for William in 1851 and 1861 thanks. He is not with parents in Wakefield in 1851.

Possibly at school in Sheffield with a brother ??

do you have the original of his birth?
I can only find one already married in 1861, an estate agent and accountant married to a Mary born in India? Can't find that one 10 years later but not finding yours either!
Thanks Barbara.

I have them in 1871.

I thought he might be here with his brother. I don't have Gervase in 1861 either. I wonder if the two of them were not in England in 1861.

Thanks Barbara.

Joshua & Amelia and Robert Pinckney are all correct.

Looks as though Gervase was baptised a second time - 1834 in Wakefield.

All three received thanks Barbara.

I looked at the fiche for the 'Hero' from Cork and the 'Eagle' from Liverpool so I'll post to that topic.

I was wondering Barbara if there was an image available for Joshua as well.
