ARC TBC Missing marriage

Postby erin » Wed Feb 21, 2018 8:30 pm

John Kelly was born Ireland abt 1835 and Jane Scott was born Scotland abt 1842. The first record I have for them is the birth of their son John James Davie Kelly in November 1867. I have though been unable to locate a marriage for John Kelly and Jane Scott, made all the more difficult because I do not know where they married.
I have checked online marriage records for England and Scotland without any luck and do not know the names of the parents of either John or Jane.

Do you have more detailed info about the births, e,g, where they were born?

I am afraid I have no more information on John or Jane. I located Jane's surname from the birth certificate of John James Davie Kelly.
I have located the family on every census from 1871 onwards....
1871. 9 Queen Street, Back house, Whitworth, Durham
John Kelly 40 Masons labourer Ireland
Jane Kelly 36 Scotland
John James Kelly 3 Durham
Thomas Kelly 3 mths Merrington Lane, Durham

1881. 23 Tweed Street, Elswick, Newcastle
John Shelly 50 General Lablourer Ireland
Jessie Shelly 49 Scotland
John James 15 Shop Boy Durham
Tom 10 Spennymoor, Durham
Sarah Jane 8 Newbottle, Durham

1891. 11 Delaval Terrace, Benwell, Newcastle.
John Kelly 67 Bricklayers Labourere Ireland
Jane Kelly 64 Scotland
Sarah Jane 18 Newbottle

John Kelly died in November 1891 and his age on his death certificate was given as 56, so as you can see I can't even be sure of his year of birth, nor Janes.
Jane died in 1907 and her death certificate gives her age as 65. All terribly confusing!

Is this still a Brickwall, or have you solved it?
