    mates parents

    Its a while since i have been on the site but i would like to get some help if possible, I am looking for any information regarding my mates parents, and i don't have the knowledge or it seems the patience anymore. I am looking for Samuel Edward Briggs, possibly in Keithley ,Yorkshire ,DOB 03,02,1909,married Margaret Waring in 1936,I do hope that someone could help as he is getting old now and would love to get some information as to who is in his past. Ron

    All the best to everyone

    Sam's death in 1987 gives his birth as 3.2 1909,but in 1939 he is living in Arthur St. Salford and states his birthdate as 30.5.1909.Margaret's is given as 31.6.1908. The ref. for the marriage is 4/4 1936 Salford 8D 656

            I am not finding him on the 1911 census - he seems to be hiding.

                    William Briggs married Mary Jane Johnson 6/10/1894 Ockbrook, Derbyshire - he son of Henry Briggs and she a widow dau. of Thomas Fletcher. Witnesses Christopher Fletcher and Johanna Fletcher.

                    For some reason the whole family have been listed as Johnson on 1911 census at Cheetham Hill, Manchester.

                    William Briggs was born 1867 Spondon, Derbyshire, son of Henry Briggs and Elizabeth Fox.

                    Mary Jane Fletcher born 1866 Spondon, dau. of Thomas Fletcher and Sarah Jane Holbrook.

                      I had found that census, was trying to check it was the right family with MMN of children, but went to bed, it is so odd that they are Johnson.

                            1871 Mary Jane is as Gt grandaughter to Frank Holbrook age 81 and Thomas and Sarah in the next household

                            https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VBXJ-WCX

                            Have found a marriage 28 Sep 1812 at St. Alkmund to Ann Rigett and then the family are on census returns in Spondon; Francis died 1872 Q3 Shardlow age 83.

                            Just a bit stuck at the 'middle marriage' for Thomas and Sarah Jane
