William Bellamy 1824-Deceased and Emma Bradshaw 1830-Deceased: Marriage Certificate

Published: October 30, 2007    Last modified: February 4, 2017

Certificates

No great surprises with this marriage certificate:

William BELLAMY 1824-Deceased age 23 years married Emma BRADSHAW 1830-Deceased age 20 years at Sheffield on the 11th of September, 1846.

I cannot say with absolute certainty which church they were married at, the entry appears to say 'par church'; is this meant to be an abbreviation of 'parish church'? If so this would have been what is now Sheffield Cathedral

My research proved correct and I can now concentrate on going back another generation.

The father of William BELLAMY 1824-Deceased is recorded as George BELLAMY and I have a entry from the England and Wales Census 1841 showing a wife by the name of Sarah, though as yet I have not researched this any further.

The father of Emma BRADSHAW 1830-Deceased is recorded as William BRADSHAW 1801-Deceased and I have a entry from the same census showing a wife by the name of Elizabeth, again, I have not researched this any further.

Today I posted a request to Sheffield Register Office for the Marriage Certificates of:

William Henry ASHFORTH 1851-1899 and Ellen PASLEY - abt 1867.

William BELLAMY 1824-Deceased and Emma BRADSHAW - abt 1846.

Once again I hope these certificates will provide a few clues which may help in my research.

Updates:
2007-10-18 It would appear that this time my research is incorrect. The Sheffield Register Office telephoned to say the marriage records show William Henry ASHFORTH 1851-1899 married Lucy Ellen LOCKWOOD and not Ellen PASLEY.

2009-01-03 Further research shows Ellen ASHFORTH's maiden name to be TOMLINSON not PASLEY.

So now I can confirm Joseph BELLAMY 1857-Deceased's father as one William BELLAMY 1824-Deceased and Mary Ann BELLAMY (née Mary Ann TURNER 1861-Deceased)'s father as one Edwin TURNER 1827-Deceased. It also provides me with 2 hitherto unknown addresses.

Of further interest are the two witness names of George FROST and Mary Ann WHITHAM. Are they family or friends?

Sheffield Register Office: Yet again

Certificates

I happened to be in Sheffield today so I took the opportunity to call at the register office to check if the certificates I had requested were ready for collection.

The staff had retrieved the birth certificate of Joseph BELLAMY 1857-Deceased and the marriage certificate of Joseph BELLAMY 1857-Deceased and Mary Ann TURNER 1861-Deceased, but had not been able to locate a birth certificate for Mary Ann TURNER 1861-Deceased. The Deputy Registrar very kindly showed the number of searches his staff had carried out without yielding a useful result. They had obviously spent some considerable time on these searches for which I am very grateful and once again I express my appreciation of the registry office staff.

Having analysed the data from these certificates I have corroborated most of the findings from my original research. I have also established the maiden name of William BELLAMY 1824-Deceased's wife Emma: Emma BRADSHAW 1830-Deceased. The marriage certificate confirms Edwin TURNER 1827-Deceased to be the father of Mary Ann.

Realising I have been researching the wrong line of BELLAMY, and having taken a fresh look at my notes, I decided to spend time researching Mary Ann BELLAMY (née Mary Ann TURNER 1861-Deceased), Joseph BELLAMY 1857-Deceased's wife.

My notes show I had already established a marriage in 1879 between one Joseph BELLAMY 1857-Deceased and one Mary Ann BELLAMY (née Mary Ann TURNER 1861-Deceased), and I have no reason to doubt the cogency of this.

A search of FreeBMD shows a birth for a Mary Ann BELLAMY (née Mary Ann TURNER 1861-Deceased) in September 1861. This corresponds with the census information. Unfortunately, at the time of writing, the FreeBMD database holds very few records of birth for the year 1857. This could be why after many hours searching, trying variations of spelling and several districts I have yet to find a record of birth for Joseph BELLAMY 1857-Deceased.

A search of the 1871 British Census reveals this household:

Not wishing to make the same mistake twice, and since I had planned to visit Sheffield today, I called at the register office and ordered the following certificates:

Marriage Certificate: Joseph BELLAMY 1857-Deceased and Mary Ann BELLAMY (née Mary Ann TURNER 1861-Deceased)

Birth Certificate: Joseph BELLAMY 1857-Deceased

Birth Certificate: Mary Ann BELLAMY (née Mary Ann TURNER 1861-Deceased)

These should be available in a few days time and hopefully will confirm the results of my research.
