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? ( bit.ly/1OcWThc).
