    Walter's death certificate has arrived today.

    No surprises there - he died at 49 Coleridge Road of Myocardial Degeneration and Arterial Sclerosis. His epilepsy is also mentioned, so I know it is the correct Walter GOLDSMITH.

    Death was registered by S A GOLDSMITH (widow) of the same address, so this really does confirm that the SMITHs were also the GOLDSMITHs.

    Just waiting for the marriage certificate :nailbiting:

    And there you are led to the marriage of Sarah Ann Ralph, née Tomlinson to Walter George Smith aka Goldsmith. :)

    In 1901 Sarah Ann Tomlinson is 17 and a cotton weaver. Also in the household is 11 year old Sarah A PEARSON and 9 year old Clara PEARSON.
    Cousins to Walter, Sarah or both?

    It seems that Clara and Sarah Annie were the daughters of Jonathon Bailey Pearson and Alice Savage. More children are Thomas Haworth, Mary Elizabeth, Mandurah and Amanda.

    Martha Alice Haworth married John Thomas Crawshaw 1875 Haslingden
    She then married William Tomlinson in 1876 as Martha Alice Crawshaw.
    This is getting confusing....sorry. The Pearson girls living with the Tomlinson’s in 1901 have a brother Thomas Haworth.
    Pearsons, Haworth and Tomlinson’s and perhaps also the Goldsmiths are all somehow related so is this maybe a cause for a family rift and Sarah Ann Goldsmith has a brother George Crawshaw. :confused:

    Woo Hoo! <|:) 8(:-) <|:) (+)(^^)(+)

    The marriage certificate has arrived and it is my Walter! :D

    He names his father as Caleb SMITH, baker, and is a house decorator aged 38.

    His father was Caleb GOLDSMITH, a baker, Walter was a painter. The wedding took place on 6th march 1926: Walter says that he is 38 and that corresponds with his birth on 19th August 1887.

    Who was Sarah Ann? ;)

    She was Sarah Ann RALPH, widow, neé TOMLINSON, her father William being a deceased Iron Turner. She gives her age as being 41 which works with a birth of 21st March 1884 - she was just coming up to her 42nd birthday.

    These all tie in with the information in posts #79 and #80.

    A HUGE thank you to you all - and to @MollyMay for finding that marriage record. ():-)

    They wed by licence at The New Jerusalem Church, Corner of Reads and Livingstone Roads, Fylde. That's a new thing to research....o_O

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    (Chuffed to little mintballs does not even come close ;))

    :D:D:D:D:D:D
