    Henry James Brookes / father John Brookes

    Got the marriage certificate but still cannot find the Brookes family!!
    Here is what it says
    19th March 1918 Wincobank, Sheffield
    Henry James Brookes, 25, Batchelor, Disposal Royal Marines, Resident Grangemouth Scotland, Father John Brookes profession Elastic Weaver

    I know all about Henry James Brookes, born 1893 Sheffield, after his marriage but not the family before this time. Can anyone help please???

    Janet in Yorkshire

        The one Janet has found does look correct -this would be the birth registration

        Births Dec 1892
        Brookes Henry James
        Leicester 7a 249

        Why do you think he was born in Sheffield?

          Sorry about erratic spelling, making mince pies at the same time as doing this- you know how addictive it is!
          I still cannot find Henry James Brookes on any census forms?

            I don't know, think I must have jumped to conclusions - bad mistake

              I think he was known as Harry.

              1901 census (which is the one Janet gave)

                  Good job you sent for the marriage cert - I could only find the one John Brookes, who was an elastic weaver.

                    The parents in 1891 perhaps?

                    piece 2538; folio 6; page 5

                    Father is a clicker in the shoe trade
