    Default Hannah Swannell marraige.

    Looking for a marriage for Hannah Swannell baptised 1857. Little Kimble, Buckinghamshire. (Daughter of William Swannell & Rebecca(nee.Quarrendon).

    NOT to be confused with her cousin, Hannah Swannell b.1858. Monks Risborough(Askett), Bucks, who married Charles King in 1884 Paddington. (although she was baptised in Little Kimble, to John Swannell and Leah(nee.Fox)).

    Hannah Swannell(b.1857) last seen in 1871. Little Kimble, Bucks.

    No idea if this is of use -

    Sep quarter 1887
    Wellingborough district 3b 253

    marriage of Hannah Elizabeth F Swannell.

    You state she was baptised 1857 - is this her birth year or might she have been baptised at some later point in her life?
    Do you know for certain that she married or even that she survived into adulthood?

    Another (distant) possible is the marriage of Hannah Swanneh, Sep qtr 1884, Kensington 1a 262. Although the index does indeed state the surname as Swanneh, I can easily imagine the handwritten marriage information being written so that LL looked like H....
    Swanneh seems a somewhat unusual surname doesn't it?

    She was with her parents in 1871 census, and her father William remarried in 1874, Princes Risborough, Bucks to Betsy Smith.

    (Her mother died in 1873, and was buried in Great Kimble, Bucks.)

    Hannah isn't with them in 1881 census.

    She was baptised in 29 Nov 1857, Little Kimble. along with her 4 siblings.

    Her cousin Hannah(1858) married in 1894, @ St.Peter, Paddington, Westminster.

    The marriage you found was to Charles King, her cousins husband.

    There is a Banns entry March 1878 Frederick Shepperd & Hannah Swannell, Lambeth St Mary.

    Possible?

    The Hannah Elizabeth Frances marriage was to Arthur James Underwood and she was b 1867 Wellingborough.

    do you think Hannah might have followed her sister Jane to Australia? ( Jane widow of Abel Garnett married Joseph Bates in 1871 and according to trees at Ancestry had two further children in Queensland)

    I didn't consider her going to Australia with, or following sister Jane Swannell(Garnett/Bates), b1839. Great Kimble, Bucks.

    I suppose I'd better get checking shipping records for Hannah, and even her other sister Mary Ann Swannell b1844, Great Kimble.

    I'll see if I can find anything.

    Thanks for looking.

    That doesn't seem to have led anywhere. Looking at the page, this, and most of the entries are marked with a tick, whereas the one below shows a cross. Normally, I'd expect such marks to indicate that a ceremony followed (a tick), whereas an X indicated otherwise. But who are we to know what was in the Record maker's mind when those were added?

    I've tried the newspapers for a Marriage, or Obit for either. Nothing.

    Can't match a Marriage for a Fred* Shep*rd to a Hanna*/Anna [variant] for that year. Also can't readily identify this Fred to later Census records. (lack of info re age, occupation, etc.)

    In essence, I've been unable to find anything further that is useful.

    DOH!
