Rosey (Rosa) Ashforth and Harry Baxter: Marriage

Published: November 25, 2007    Last modified: February 4, 2017


Previous research of Rosey BAXTER 1874-Deceased suggests she also used the forenames Rosie and later Rosey.

Searching online I found a marriage for a Rosey ASHFORTH in September 1892 at Sheffield. This record shows her spouse could be either Harry BAXTER or Walter TANKARD.

A quick search of the England and Wales Census 1901 for 'Rosey BAXTER' reveals:

Rosey BAXTER, 3, Yorks, Sheffield, Sheffield, Nether Hallam
Rosey BAXTER, 27, Yorks, Sheffield, Nether Hallam

Since these are the only records returned by this search and the dates coincide with my expectations, I think it is safe to assume Rosey ASHFORTH married Harry BAXTER at Sheffield, sometime during September 1892.

I will also assume the Rosey BAXTER age 3 years is the daughter of Rosey BAXTER (née Rosa ASHFORTH 1874-Deceased) and Harry BAXTER.

Mary Jane Flowers 1866-Deceased and Arthur Marsden 1858-Deceased: Marriage

Published: April 4, 2007    Last modified: January 12, 2017

During research of my ASHFORTH line I stumbled across a record of marriage for my great grand aunt Mary Jane MARSDEN (née Mary Jane FLOWERS 1866-Deceased), sister of my great grandmother Florence ASHFORTH (née Florence FLOWERS 1876-1973), to one Arthur MARSDEN 1858-Deceased.

They were married at the Church of Saint John the Baptist, Owlerton, Sheffield, the church where I was baptised and many of my ancestors were baptised and married.

Mary Jane MARSDEN (née Mary Jane FLOWERS 1866-Deceased) is recorded as being 20 years of age and residing at 69 Capel Street, Sheffield. Arthur MARSDEN 1858-Deceased is recorded as being 28 years of age residing at the same address. The marriage took place on the 1st of January 1887 with Herbert WILD and Florence WATSON acting as witnesses.

Arthur MARSDEN - file cutter.
George FLOWERS 1839-1891 - (Mary Jane's father) - file lighter.
William MARSDEN (Arthur's father) - cutler.

Herbert WILD married Elizabeth WILD (née Elizabeth FLOWERS 1867-Deceased), the sister of Mary Jane MARSDEN (née Mary Jane FLOWERS 1866-Deceased) and my great grandmother Florence ASHFORTH (née Florence FLOWERS 1876-1973) on the 14th of October, 1888 at the Church of Saint John the Baptist, Owlerton, Sheffield.

Harriet Flowers and Henry Hart: Marriage

Published: March 13, 2007    Last modified: November 14, 2016

Distracted as usual while updating part of my journal I landed on this previous post regarding Harriet HART (née Harriet FLOWERS 1873-Deceased) and Henry HART 1870-Deceased. At the time I could not find a marriage for Harriet HART (née Harriet FLOWERS 1873-Deceased) and Henry HART 1870-Deceased. Today I ran a search on FreeBMD since records are being added all the time and found an entry for a marriage between Henry HART 1870-Deceased and Harriet HART (née Harriet FLOWERS 1873-Deceased). They were married during September 1913 at Sheffield, Yorkshire, England.

This is intriguing. If my records are correct Henry and Harriet would been at least 40 years of age and the two children shown on the England and Wales Census 1901 about 17 and 14 years of age.

Henry HART 1870-Deceased and his son William HART 1897-Deceased are recorded as being born in Norfolk NK (I presume NK is Not Known, though I could be wrong).

I received from 'Judith' this comment to an earlier article:

Hart family Norfolk

"Don't know if this ties into your family anywhere but my 4xgreat grandfather was a bricklayer in the North Walsham area of Norfolk as was his father & grandfather. He was Philip Hart bpt 1787 married to Mary Barber. His granddaughter Sarah Jane Hart (my gg grandmother) moved to County Durham in the 1860's." - Judith

I am intrigued by this so I will add the marriage certificate for Harriet HART (née Harriet FLOWERS 1873-Deceased) and Henry HART 1870-Deceased to my task list.

George William Frost and Mary Ann Whitham: Marriage

In this previous post I recorded George FROST and Mary Ann WHITHAM being the witnesses at the marriage of Joseph BELLAMY 1857-Deceased and Mary Ann BELLAMY (née Mary Ann TURNER 1861-Deceased). Intuition told me these two witnesses were probably friends of Joseph and Mary Ann and it could be productive to spend a little time searching for a marriage between this couple.

This time my intuition proved correct and I found George William FROST and Mary Ann WHITHAM were married during September 1880 at Sheffield, Yorkshire.

Parish Church of Saint Andrew, Wimpole, Cambridgeshire

Parish Church of Saint Andrew, Wimpole, Cambridgeshire

Parish Church of Saint Andrew, Wimpole, Cambridgeshire

In March of this year during a few days staying at Barton Mills, Suffolk we made a fleeting visit to Wimpole Hall, Wimpole, Cambridgeshire.

Standing within the grounds of Wimpole Hall is the Parish Church of Saint Andrew, which though being very close to the hall, is totally independent of both Wimpole Hall and the National Trust which administers the Hall.

The www.wimpole.info web site provides a valuable archive of Wimpole, Orwell and nearby villages.

This site provides a transcript of www.wimpole.info/marriages_1800.htm "The Registers for the Parish of Wimpole, Cambridgeshire" and contains several references to JACKLIN.

This extract shows a reference to a Daniel JACKLIN being a witness to the marriage of Stephen JACKLIN and Jane WHITBY.

4 December 1858
JACKLIN Stephen, of Whaddon, bachelor, labourer, son of John, labourer
WHITBY Jane, spinster, servant, daughter of John, labourer
Witnesses: Daniel JACKLIN and Elizabeth WRIGHT

I thought this might be my gg grandfather Daniel JACKLIN 1842-1897. He would have been 16 years old in 1858; too young to be a marriage witness?

More likely this was Daniel JACKLIN who eventually married Elizabeth WRIGHT at Bassingbourn on 18th April 1863.

Both were descendants of James JACKLIN 1767-1836 and Ann HOWES 1775-1851.

2010-10-15 The domain at www.wimpole.info seems to have expired so I have deactivated the links.

2016-11-01 I have added a link to the nearby village of Orwell, where many of the JACKLIN's originated.

2016-11-01 I came across this wonderful site: The Parishes of Arrington, Croydon, Orwell and Wimpole: Local History

"Between 1999 and 2006 I set up and maintained a number of local history websites for Arrington, Croydon, Orwell and Wimpole - four ancient parishes located in South Cambridgeshire, some seven miles west of the university city of Cambridge. For various reasons (mainly employment) the sites gradually died and the domains eventually lapsed. Seven years on and I have been challenged to get the information back out online. Retirement and the discovery of an old pre-USB back-up disc have negated my long (and completely plausible) list of excuses - so here once again are several hundred original web pages, frozen in all their pre-2006 pre-broadband glory! Enjoy the minimal graphics, iffy designs, dodgy navigation and the largely pre-CSS coding." - Steve [September 2013]
