It says "Leeds in the County of York"

You need first of all to make sure you've got data from all the parish churches and chapels in the area. https://www.familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Lancashire will help you with a list of all parishes and all the chapels in those parishes. Plus data about what's a/v from those places. By no means all registers will be online. Then you need to have a look at ...

I was intrigued by your problem and the answer given, which is correct. I took a few minutes (<10) to look up the record. The FamilySearch entry came from film# 1469720, which is Archbishop of York's marriage bonds and allegations. There are actually 4 documents - the bond, the allegation, the license, and a supporting baptismal certificate for the bride. ...

As a fellow rookie, one trick the others haven't mentioned, is to search the marriage registers in the parishes of Thorganby, Nether Poppleton, Fulford and Stillingfleet in the years 1740-1780 for marriages and marriage witnesses in the names of Hare and Fowler. That's the best way to build up a reliable FAN network - unless your man was a church warden - ...

In response to your general question: Is it common for FamilySearch.org indexes of marriages (and burials, I suppose) to have extraneous information added compared to the original parish register, and if so, how much weight should be put on that extra information if it conflicts with a scan of the parish register? It is not uncommon for parish ...

The following may be relevant (and should also be available on Ancestry). Reference: PROB 11/1815/360 Description: Will of Robert Fowler, Farmer of Thorganby , Yorkshire Date: 31 May 1833 Held by: The National Archives, Kew Legal status: Public Record(s) Closure status: Open Document, Open Description http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/...

I have no previous experience in this but I think it may be related to the Burial in Woollen Acts: The first Act was passed in 1666 (18 & 19 Cha. II c. 4 1666), and the second, and rather more famous, in 1678 repealing the first (30 Car. II cap.3). Its aims were "for the lessening the importation of linen from beyond the seas, and the ...

This does not seem very authoritative but Answers.com says: The name Mally is a medieval diminutive form of the name Mary, and was a pet, or affectionate form of the name Mary. 16th century records in Scotland showed it in common usage there. Some say its origin is English, but there is also reason to find its origin Scot. It suggests your theory ...

My experience with researching in that area of West Yorkshire is that it's not particularly surprising not to be able to find a baptism record for a person, or even a whole batch of siblings. The Ancestry collections that you're looking at are in no way complete - it's fairly easy to find things in the West Yorkshire Archives Service catalogue that don't ...

Start with York Minster and ask at their History / Conservation department York Minster website. I believe that there is a City of London Guild for stained glass. I have heard from my friend, that there is a City Guild and they have no records and are most unhelpful apparently. However, the Society of Master Glass Painters are helpful and have some records ...

I also suggest checking burials as many times an individual has tombstone notations or is buried in a plot with or near other family members.

Try looking for a later baptism. Heptonstall St Thomas has many late baptisms. I found Mary Wadsworth baptised in 1837 although she was born in 1819. Several of her siblings were baptised at the same time regardless of age. Other entries show late baptisms for other families. Once found the entry was meticulously entered. It named Mary's father although she ...

Is this one in Ancestry's West Yorkshire, England, Births and Baptisms, 1813-1910 any use for for Sarah? Name: Sarah Suteliffe Birth Date: 17 Jul 1815 Parish: Heptonstall, St Thomas Baptism Date: 6 May 1816 Father's Name: Richard Suteliffe Mother's Name: Mally Flether It shouldn't be indexed as "Sutcliffe" - there is no evidence on ...

I've never found a single map repository that always has what I'm looking for, so I tend to start with a simple web search for something like "sheffield old maps", and compare what I find with modern maps, street view and so on to see if anything visible now might survive from then. Starting with a search rather than a particular archive does have the ...

The first one-inch-to-the-mile series from the Ordnance survey only covered the county of Kent. They were published in 1801. A series for Essex followed shortly after. From the 1840's onwards, maps at larger scales were produced. For the sort of task you are looking at, I suspect that you're going to need the six-inch-to-the-mile, or even the 25-inch-to-the-...

I don't believe you have enough information to make a determination based on the Genealogical Proof Standard. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genealogical_Proof_Standard You might also check out this post on how to evaluate evidence. https://www.legacytree.com/blog/evaluating-genealogical-evidence That probably isn't what you wanted to hear. I have a ...

In Nether Poppleton Robert Fowler appears to have a large family - unless there's two Roberts with families almost overlapping. His children's names include Ann, Jane, Lucy, Margaret. Mary, Robert and William (also check under FULER and FULLER). https://www.findmypast.co.uk/search/results?_page=3&o=lastname&d=asc&sourcecategory=life%20events%20(...

I take it that the two records are on FamilySearch. Record 1 Charles Kerby & Mary Ann Hart 11 May 1828 Allerthorpe, York, England Film 2104781 Record 2 Charles Kirby & Mary Ann Hart 17 May 1828 Allerthorpe By Pocklington,York,England Film 990927 You need to find out what record is being indexed in each case. Using the ...

You've made some rookie mistakes here (don't worry, we've ALL done it). It's possible that neither one of these matches are your person. We tend to fall into the trap of thinking all record sets are complete and there's never any record loss. Now that you have these matches, investigate each match as if they are different people than the one you are ...

I have found William Morris's marriage in 1908 to an Eliza Buckley, and I have found his two children: John born 1909 in Yorkshire and Hannah born 1911 in Leigh, Lancashire. I believe I have also found Hannah's marriage in 1938 to a Mr Brennan. No death found yet for William or Eliza.

As has already been said, its "Leeds in the County of York" In case you're not familiar with the UK, Leeds is a large city in West Yorkshire. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leeds

I just participated in the Family Search Indexing transcribing mostly marriage records. However, on some records, it was only the application, not the actual marriage. I chose not to enter those and requested some help on what to do but never got it. So, someone could have transcribed the application date for the marriage date as "application" was not an ...
