Well girls i've had it, cant find a remarriage for an Ann or Nanny from 1862 up to 1870, she would be in her late 70's by then, so why on earth would she want to get married again anyway. It says on her death cert in 1876 that she was a widow of a James Walker a farmer, she lived to a ripe old age though did'nt she 89. Your right we are mad :lol: :lol: :lol:

... I found an Isaac on the 1851 census with all the same details as Isaac 1861, but it says is wife is called Ann, do you think it is possible Ann was known as Nanny, and would they be able to register her on the death cert as Nanny and not Ann :?: .

In my experience it would be possible to register a death using a derived name like Nanny for Ann. We have a couple of Elizabeths who appear on their marriage certs as Betty. I don't think they were as fussy about accurate registrations in the earlier years of the registration system.

I second that thought Maureen.

Stephanie - when you say you have looked for the marriage, have you done a surname search and not found what you want in the results or have you checked page by page through the actual marriage index for Laycock or Walker?

Don't know if you have this (though it doesn't help with the mystery)
1841 census, Fleet, Cowling, Yorks:
HO107; Piece 1317; Book: 4; Civil Parish: Kildwick; County: Yorkshire; Enumeration District: 4; Folio: 29; Page: 9
Hannah Tatham 25
Hartley Tatham 25 farmer
John Tatham 2
Joseph Tatham 1

Also there's a marriage (1862) in the Briercliffe church records for John Tatham & Margaret Pickles.

Thanks Maureen I have got both of those. :)
Thanks Mel, I have done both, surname searches and checked page by page :( I suppose it is going to have to remain one of those maybe's, but I wont stop searching, as you both can probably empathise with me eh!

We can all empathise Stephanie. Maybe they never actually married!

I have found that one Maureen, but it would'nt help me would it if I sent for it, what do you think? I think I will try another tack, on Nanny Walkers death cert it says her late husband was James Walker, would I find anything out if I could find his death cert?

I think the only useful stuf you'd get off these certs is confirmation of the widow's name (or otherwise) which would show whether she actually married either/ both of them.
Sorry I'm not being much help.

James's death certificate won't tell you when they married though Stephanie. I don't think I would bother.
