I think this is the first marriage for Susannah though if it is, she is incorrectly indexed as Hannah
Marriages Sep 1860
Barker Robert Burnley 8e 313
Rawson Hannah Burnley 8e 313

Susannah Barker and Peter Leaver were neighbours in 1861

The plot thickens. Susannah's was the second wife of Robert Barker. His first wife was Ann Leaver, daughter of Abraham Leaver. Their marriage is in the church records database http://www.briercliffesociety.co.uk/Chu ... ecords.htm

Kris, I can't find Ann or her father Abraham in your file, are they previously unknown?

Mel, I have her as Nanny, born 24/2/1820. Her father was actually Thomas, not Abraham. Abraham was a witness at her wedding and it was probably her brother.

Where are they on the 1841 Maureen, do you have details (without doing a search)? I haven't looked yet but can do later.
