I could order Ann's marriage cert too. But marriage cert will not give me her mother's name; will give me father's occupation, though, and Ann Jackson married 6 Aug 1836 so I might see if it still says her father is a clothier (if he's not retired and listed simply as "gentleman", or deceased).
Civil registration started 1 July 1837 so unfortunately you won't be able to get a copy of Ann's birth cert as one won't exist.

A marriage for 1836 will be in a different format to post 1 July 1837 ones, so an 1836 entry would give the bride & groom, the parishes they lived at the time of marriage, whether they were a bachelor, spinster, widow, widower (tho some I have don't give this), whether the marriage was by banns or licence & the names of the witnesses.

Yes, that's right.

I can't see where those tree owners have got 1777 from for Thomas's birth - just a guess, I would think.

Oh duh. Thanks Jay. So prior to 1 July 1837 no kind of certificate exists, not the marriage either? Whatever is to be found is only on the parish registers, I guess.

You were writing while I was posting, Kite. Thanks for looking for that. I'll take "1777" with a grain of salt. So ancestry has extracts from the PRs is what you're saying.

Wow. Way cool. Well, I think that just made up my mind for me on which sub to get. Thanks!

Well, I'm more inclined to believe that mundia tree now, having combed through all the transcriptions of the Baptism Registers for Horsforth Chapel on GenUKI from 1700 to 1812. (I actually loaded all 4,201 of them into a single Excel spreadsheet for analysis.)

Some of the Stead family in Horsforth are clothiers, as was my MMMMF Thomas Jackson until 1812. But another of those Steads is Paper Maker or Paper Miller by occupation, and this Henry Stead is the father of Hannah Stead. So I think Thomas was perhaps eventually taken into his father-in-law's business and was thereafter a papermaker.

Have found Thomas and his wife Hannah on a gravestone at Rawdon-St Peter's, with several of their children who died young.

So this will be him:

Happy camper.

I'm creeping closer and closer, Babs. I really thought I had taken a big step in your direction once when it seemed like one of the Jackson girls had moved to Bridlington, but it turned out to be a couple with the same given names as my rellie and her husband.
