    Good ones Sis, so far I can't even find them for sure in other censuses.
    closest I've come is
    Name: Eliza Jessie Jenkins
    Birth: 25 Jun 1820, Baptism: 19 Jul 1820
    Baptism Place: Saint Julian,Shrewsbury,Shropshire,England
    Pts:Jeremiah Jenkins + Eliza
    FHL Film Number: 503529, 510677
    .......................
    Not having FMP sub now cannot check Licenses & marriage bonds for Cheshire, which AI don't think would give Fathers info anyways. Not found marriage for Jeremiah & Eliza either. Sorry.

    Thanks for your efforts Wendy. I took advantage of the 1 pound for a month on FMP and I have found them in the Cheshire Licenses and Marriage Bonds and you're right it doesn't give father's info. I too can't find marriage of Jeremiah & Eliza and the baptism is the one I have too. I'm still looking at censuses.

    I think I may know what the answer is but wanted input from others just in case I was makin' it up:D

    There will be wisdom along soon I'm sure, I've been on computer too long to be useful today. Hope you find for sure the answer. :)

    Probably way off, but could Mr Jenkins be a Journeyman?

    What a shame the same hand writing about the bridal couple couldn't have finished the record!!!

    I was fiddling around trying to figure out if it is 'journeyman'. Seems it starts with a 'j'
    Pipped at the post........Philippa :)

    Great minds, AM, great minds!! :D

    If the groom was, as recorded, an architect, then his father's occupation as gentleman is certainly a possibility.

    I could make out GEON as the last four letters, Philippa, and surgeon the only occupation ending such.

    Thanks Lizzy, hadn't tried the newspapers yet.:) Also the granddaughter bit has helped, saw something earlier with regard to the names Jenkins and Yonge. If only I could remember where..........
