marriage for Sarah Mitchison - Cockermouth, Cumberland

Hello forum,

I'm trying to find a marriage for my ancestor Sarah Mitchison (b.1833) who was my ggg-grandmother.

She married a Robert Mattinson (b.1833, also from Cumberland), but I can't find anything on the IGI family search or on ancestry.co.uk.

Please could somebody have a look for me as I've been going around in circles with no luck!

Thanks,
Darren

Hi peterd,

I got the information off my nan's grandmother's' birth certificate. It says they were living in High Lorton, Cockermouth, County of Cumberland. It has Robert Mattinson as a brewers drayman in Cockermouth for occupation. And his wife is listed as Sarah Mattinson formerly Mitchison.

Hi grangers, great find! This certainly looks like it could be a match. I forgot that people often spelt their names in a variety of ways! I will follow up this lead and fingers crossed another mystery solved. Thanks. Darren :)

If that is her, do you think may be she was married before?

Hi Jo,

No I don't think she married before. I do know she was born in Carlisle and since there is a marriage with a Robert Mattieson around the right time (in Carlisle) I'm hoping this is the correct match! :)
