C\n anyone suggest where I could look for a record of my great grandfathers marriage? He was Thomas Whitaker who married a Eliz. E. ? He was born 1858 in haggate/ Briercliffe and buried at Haggate, but appears on the census on Townley st in the Briercliffe Rd, area. Eldest daughter born 1880 therefore am I right to assume they probably married 1879? Have checked St Peters for the 4 years, are there any other churches that would be likely places :? :?

There is a marriage on Family search site of a Thomas Whitaker (father Richard Whitaker) to an Elizabeth Lloyd 26th Aug 1880 Colne. These should always be double checked.

Well spotted Kris.
St Andrews is quite close to Townley St.

I think St Andrews records are hels at the LRO in Preston. I seem to remember wanting to view them myself at Burnley but they did not have them.
I am not sure what years are held at the LRO though. I recently viewed the early 1900 marriages for St Andrews. They were in original book form.

:D Thanks everyone, of course St Andrews makes sense now, ( I am suffering from family history search syndrome!!) Symptoms, discuss at all times with your friends, whether they like it or not, talk about people they have never met and don't care about, signs for this are glazed eyes and sudden change of subject to the weather, anything!! to shut me up.Also brainwaves about search directions at 1.00 a.m.Then insomnia till I can get out and follow the lead. :mrgreen:

I prescribe a visit to the LRO and a walk around a graveyard. It will do you the world of good. :mrgreen:

Are you Lancashire based Hannah? Will we see you at the next history society meeting at the end of the month? (25 March)

On the subject of marriages, am I right in thinking that father's names/ occupations etc have always been shown since the 'new' 1837 system came in? I went to the library today to find a couple of 1840s marriages at St Mary the Virgin. But all the information it showed was the date & names of the bride, groom, vicar & witnesses. No fathers, no adresses. So either the church copy isn't a full copy of the registration office certificate, or the fathers's names & ocupations requirement came later. Likewise the bride & groom's addresses.
I don't want to shell out £14 for copy certificates only to find they don't tell me anything I don't already know.

They've always been shown on the ones I have sent for, unless of course the father was unknown, then it was just left blank.

There wasn't even space for the details on the copies I looked at. It was the 3-to-a-page variety and it looked liked they were using up an old book. I looked through my collection of certificates but oddly enough I have none before 1851. I've always been lucky enough not to need them to further the cause.
Think I'll bite the bullet and buy them on the assumption that the chuch copy is a basic extract from the full one. It's not that I'm mean, but these aren't even my tree - they're my grandson's.

That is unusual. I don't think I have come across that at all.

I have marriage certificates from 1839 and 1841. Both show the fathers' names and occupations.

Thanks Joan. I think it must just be the St Mary's own copy then. I did notice that where the date goes, the year 183_ was already printed, so they'd had to cross out the 3 to write in 1842, 1843 etc. So maybe as I say they were using up old books from before 1837. Tightwads. Now I have to shell out the £14.
