    Hello, and a belated happy new year to all

    I have found the marriage of Isaac WILSON to Jane WOODS on 21 May 1865 on LancashireOPC at St Paul, Farington
    It shows Isaac's age as 24 but he was born in 1830 which would make him 34.
    On the 1861 census he is recorded as 31 as 1871 as 39.
    Is the original parish register available anywhere? I think it may simply be a transcription error.

    Thanks
    David

    Not finding anything but the bare essentials as you already have. Fathers Thomas Wilson & Thomas Woods. Even a 'tree' only has birth 1830 & marriage at Preston, Lancs.

    The marriage on Lancashire OPC says he was a widower. The previous marriage for an Isaac is 1861 and he is 29 when he married Elizabeth Johnson. Making him 33/34 on his second marriage.

    I think he died prior to 1891 as Jane is a widow on the 1891 census.

    They are living at Hennell Lane Harren Hill, Walton-Le-Dale, Preston in 1881.

    Could he be the Isaac Wilson burial on 14 Apr 1884 aged 55 years. Place of death is Walton, Lancashire. (FMP)

    LancashireOPC has his age on burial as 35.

    GRO also has 55

    Many thanks to all who have responded to my query. Some pieces I had already unearthed but others I hadn't got round to investigating so that has saved some time. I'll study the above posts carefully before updating my tree.
