Can­not find mar­riage bit.ly/1OcVnvG I’m hav­ing no luck in find­ing the mar­riage of Di­nah Her­ring ( Her­rin/ Heron) and Isa­iah Lee. In the 1861 census they are lodg­ing in York­shire.

Di­nah gives her age as 23, Isa­iah is 19. I have their bap­tismal dates as well as their death cer­tifi­cates, but no mar­riage. They are Ro­many and Isa­iah was a bas­ket­maker, then be­came a horse dealer. He was also known as John. They spent most of their time in York­shire and the North East, even­tu­ally set­tling in Hartle­pool.

I think they may have mar­ried in York­shire, Lin­colnshire, Durham, Northum­ber­land or Sun­der­land. I would be so very grate­ful if any­one can help me find out more. Worther I can find is in Ger­many.

The doc­u­ment is dated 1781 and Mary, whose record it was, was born in Devon. It will be in­ter­est­ing to see where this leads to! Ar­tog­nou

Preg­nancy melan­cho­lia? bit.ly/1OcVPde I have just ac­quired a death cer­tifi­cate dated 19 April 1911 and the cause of death is recorded as ‘Preg­nancy Melan­cho­lia’. Do you know what this would have been?

The lady was aged 32 and died in the work­house in­fir­mary. On the 1911 census, taken on 2 April, she was in the in­fir­mary and her hus­band de­clared on the census that they had had three chil­dren and all were alive.

If she had had a still­born child would the birth have been reg­is­tered? Thank­ing any­one in an­tic­i­pa­tion for their help. the 6990 Lin­colnshire Reg­i­ment.

Look­ing into his life a lit­tle more, I found out that he was part of the Gran­tham Bor­ough Mil­i­tary Band and played the clar­inet.

They laid a wreath for him ev­ery year at St Wul­frams Church in Gran­tham and ac­tu­ally named him so that had more im­por­tance.

Does any­one know any more of the band or where I could find out more about them? chris­s­wain87

Cy­cling around the world bit.ly/1OcWcEP any info, or a sug­ges­tion on where to look fur­ther, I would be most ap­pre­cia­tive. hlen­nie This re­ally is a very dis­tinc­tive name, so I have to ask – is he the same man who served in the Aus­tralian Im­pe­rial Force dur­ing the First World War?
