parents of Aaron Rushforth and Elizabeth Kelly married 1860

Postby cjt » Fri Dec 13, 2019 8:42 pm

Hi folks,
I have hit a brick wall trying to find the parents of my great great grandparents Aaron Rushforth and Elizabeth Kelly who were married in St Peters Leeds in 1860 at the ages of 19 and 18 respectively. On the marriage certificate their fathers names are William and Robert respectively but neither appeared to have signed, Elizabeth Rushforth has made her mark, along with a Benjiman White.
Hope this rings a bell with somebody,
