do you have any info. about her parents, siblings etc.? I have Marsden from the West Riding. The earliest I can date is Richard born Bradford about 1869, mother Elizabeth, nee Oliver, father unknown (as yet).

I have checked the 1861 census. There a a couple of Margarets in Middx, but unless you know the name of her parents, you cannot do anymore.

There is this one ??
Class: RG9; Piece: 2645; Folio: 69; Page: 41
Margaret A Marsden abt 1849 b London, Middlesex, Stepdaughter living Bebington, Cheshire

I think the only way forward (or backwards!!) is to send for the marriage certificate.

I have just noticed. If she really was born in 1852, then she was only 14/15 years old when she married.

Hi Daz, did a search for the birth date of Margaret Marsden born N E London, using your abt 1852 as a start point +/- 2yrs there is only one birth that fits a Margaret Marsden born Sept qtr 1850 Marylebone Vol 1 Page 176.

Am now using this year date as my guide for a search.

PS I shuddered when I saw the surname Marsden, as a friend has asked me to research her Marsden clan from the Colchester area, and would not believe me when I found out for them that her grandfather was not an Essex born lad but from Preston Lancs!

Most if not all Marsdens eminate from Lancs it seems!

Best Regards

you got me started again trying to sort out mine and it seems to get even more complicated. It looks as though her maiden name was also Marsden, which means that she was a Marsden, married to a Marsden who then married an Oliver.
I'm not going to waste much time on it though, I've discovered a couple of other closer ancestors that I knew nothing about.

Margaret A Marsden abt 1849 b London, Middlesex, Stepdaughter living Bebington, Cheshire


Births Dec 1848
MARSDEN Margaret Anne Kensington 3 376

This one is a distinct possibility, as it would put her in a nearer vicinity to meet David Gittins.

You really must send for some cerificates to help you out. We all have to!! Their marriage for a start.
