I have an Emma Jeffrey born in 1844 in Warwickshire who married a Charles Barker in 1866. I cannot find her in any census before her marriage - could anyone look for me and see if they have any more luck?
she is with eliza tonks widow seminary b. bham
emily tonks teacher 22 b. hall green
henry tonks solicitors clerk 20 b. hall green
eliza tonks governess 18 b.bham
caroline tonks 16 b.bham
lucy tonks 13 b. alcester
and jane thompson a servant
would this one be any good?
Thankyou for your help. That's the marriage I had for Charles and Emma but found it difficult to make the connection with her being born in Birmingham, married in Derbyshire then moving back to Birmingham. I will send for the marriage certificate to confirm it all. Thanks again.
I have received a copy of the marriage certificate and am sure it is the right one as the father of the groom fits in with what I already know. Unfortunately the space for the brides father and occupation just has a line across it - just my luck!!! They are both listed as living in Tutbury Staffordshire at the time of their marriage, but did get married in the Register Office - so no nearer knowing who her father was or where she was born!!!! Except I now know she was 23 in 1866.
