Can anyone help with what the rank or profession for both fathers might be please.
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
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.
Could the groom's father be "Gentleman"?
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!!
If the groom was, as recorded, an architect, then his father's occupation as gentleman is certainly a possibility.
Thank you everyone. I was thinking Gentleman and journeyman, just wanted to see what others saw
Ye gods and little fluffy fishes - maybe I've contributed something useful at last!!!
(a silent thank you to the genealogical gods).
Bride's father: surgeon?
Oops, just had another look at copy of the baptism that I have for Eliza and guess what - father is a Doctor in Medicine So well done Mealymoo! Oh well it gave you all something to do.
Well done Moo, but please - how the **** did you make "surgeon" from that awful handwriting? Do tell, would love to know - honest - 'cos I'm dashed if I can, even now.
The marriage announcement is in 'Wolverhampton Chronicle and Staffordshire Advertiser 29 January 1840'
On the 18th instant at Birkenhead Church by the Rev. A Knox, Edward Rowland esq. of Tranmere, to Miss Eliza Jessie Jenkins, youngest dau of the late J Jenkins esq. M.D. and granddaughter of the late William J Yonge, esq, of Caynton House Salop.
Well done Moo.
Never mind Philippa. We did try.
I could make out GEON as the last four letters, Philippa, and surgeon the only occupation ending such.
After packing a removalist van all day!!!!!
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..........
Oh Moo you are a marvel. I have now found Eliza Jessie's parents marriage announcement. Found it earlier but couldn't be sure it was my Jeremiah but know I know it is woo hoo!! Sorry about the extreme excitement, but it's not very often I find something new.
Separate names with a comma.
